Jorian Baucom’s quickfire double gave Hibernian a victory over Heart of Midlothian that lifts the hosts above their city rivals into fourth place in the Scottish Women’s Premier League.
The American striker pounced to slot home 12 minutes after the break when goalkeeper Charlotte Parker-Smith parried a Rosie Livingstone drive.
Baucom headed in to extend the lead three minutes later from a corner.
Striker Katie Lockwood reduced the arrears with a close-range header.
However, Hibs held on despite late pressure from the visitors to end Hearts’ five-game unbeaten run.
