Last updated : 05 May 2024 By FootyMad

Stenhousemuir need only a point from their remaining match to lift the SWF League One title trophy, after dominating Falkirk 6-0 in the derby.  

C:WindowsTempphp7825.tmpA first-half hat trick from Lucia Zamorano after an opener from Amy MacLarty in just the second minute left Falkirk a mountain to climb in the second half, and Stenny remained clinical after the break, sealing the win with a goal from Eva Ralston before Praise Adebo converted a penalty in the 83rd minute to send their local rivals out of the title race.

Forfar Farmington remain however, three points behind Stenhousemuir in second after a 2-0 home win against Edinburgh Caledonia thanks to a second half double from Claire Hendry, but the Angus side must hope Stenny lose to Edinburgh Caledonia next Sunday before they face Bonnyrigg Rose the following week with a formidable +12 goal difference to make up.

Elsewhere in League One, Queen of the South and Airdrie Ladies finished their home campaigns in style, the Doonhammers putting seven past St Mirren without reply and the Diamonds winning 9-3 against Dundee West.

In the Championship, Renfrew Ladies won 10-0 against a Hutchison Vale side who will be pleased to see the back of the season.

In SWFL East Armadale Thistle remain top after seeing off an Edinburgh South comeback in the second half to win 2-1, while Dunfermline Athletic moved into third with a convincing 7-0 win over Edinburgh university Thistle.

There was only one game in SWFL South, as Annan Athletic beat Bishopton 4-3.
