Weekend sport round-up

While football fans in the southside have plenty reasons to be cheerful this weekend, the same cannot be said for local rugby supporters.

Hillhead Jordanhill defeated a weakened Selkirk side 13-0 on Sunday, killing off Whitecraigs hopes of remaining in Premier two.

Meanwhile, Braidholm side GHA saw their league title dream disappear after a loss to Howe of Fife. After the home win, the Fifers were crowned Premier three champions.

Now, all three southside rugby clubs — GHA, Cartha and Whitecraigs — will compete in the same league next season. As a result, fans have six local derbys to look forward to next year.

In football, Queen’s Park are on the verge of clinching a playoff spot after a brace from Tony Quinn helped the Spiders to a 5-1 win over East Stirling.

The Hampden side are now 12 points clear of fifth place — with only four games to go.

It was also good news for Pollok, after a penalty in the 67th minute by Gary McKenna secured a 4-3 win in a thriller away to Bellshill Athletic in the D&D Programmes central league cup, third round.

Glasgow City remain at the top of the SWPL after thumping Kilmarnock 15-1 away from home. Midfielder Leanne Ross hit her 100th league goal for the side during the game.
