Goalkeeeper | Rebecca Cameron (St. Johnstone)
In a tight contest edged by Kilmarnock, St. Johnstone stopped Cameron had to be at her best throughout the match to keep the away side shut out, as she made three second half saves to make sure the points were shared at the Riverside Stadium.
Defender | Emma Brownlie (Hearts)
Whether Hearts’ solitary goal against Partick Thistle was her’s, or Jenny Smith’s, Brownlie was crucial for the Jambos throughout, with a 81% pass accuracy, seven duels won and five clearances as part of a rock solid defence that didn’t concede a shot on target.
Defender | Robyn McCafferty (Spartans)
The 19-year-old was immense at centre back on Sunday afternoon, putting in an almost perfect performance in Spartans’ 1-0 win over Dundee United. The defender won nine duels, was accurate with 90% of her passes, and made six interceptions throughout the 90 minutes of action.
Defender | Caitlyn Hayes (Celtic)
The Celtic defender was the hero for the Hoops in the penultimate Old Firm clash of the season, leaving it until the very last minute of stoppage time to capitalise on a mix-up in the Rangers back line to rescue a point for her side.
Midfielder | Clare Williamson (Boroughmuir Thistle)
Patrolling the base of the midfield, the Thistle captain was equally as effective in going forward, as she scored a brace in her side’s 3-3 draw with Montrose, with one of her goals finding the back of the net from 35 yards out.
Midfielder | Charlotte Gammie (Montrose)
Gammie’s two goals against Boroughmuir Thistle acted as bookends for a six-goal thriller at Links Park, as the midfielder opened the scoring after just nine minutes before converting a penalty in the 85th minute to see the points shared.
Midfielder | Lauren Davidson (Glasgow City)
City’s talismanic goalscorer came back to haunt her former side on Saturday evening, as the league’s top scorer added to her tally yet again by scoring a second-half penalty, while also setting up Beatriz Prades for the opening goal.
Midfielder | Brogan Hay (Rangers)
The wide forward probably won’t score an easier goal in her career, as she was in the right place at the right time to pounce on Kelly Clark’s mistake to give a dominant Rangers the lead against Celtic.
Attacker | Bayley Hutchison (Aberdeen)
The Dons starlet may find herself unlucky not be walking away from Sunday’s win over Glasgow Women without the match ball, after she had a strike ruled out in the first half, but her two goals (including a lovely free kick from 25 yards out) were vital in securing all three points for Aberdeen.
Attacker & Star Player | Tiree Birchill (Motherwell)
They say never to get too attached to a player on loan, but Motherwell fans will have been more than enamoured by Birchill’s efforts on Sunday, as the on-loan Celtic forward netted a hat-trick in the Lanarkshire Derby, in what was a third straight derby victory for Paul Brownlie’s side.
Attacker | Carrie McGorm (Stirling University)
The Students’ striker was on hand to haul her side to a huge three points against playoff-chasing Gartcairn, grabbing herself two goals in what was Uni’s first victory since the beginning of February.
