Fortune favours Forfar 

Cumbernauld’s Sarah Wardlaw fired her side ahead on 15 minutes via an upright but Forfar equalised before the break, Laura Parsley rounding the keeper to score.

It was a freak goal that sent Forfar through, as Colts’ keeper Angela McGann was injured when landing badly from catching a corner kick and her volition saw her cross the goal-line along with the ball.

Hibs net nine

Holders Hibernian needed no such good fortune at Glasgow Girls, where they rattled in nine goals to go into the hat for Wednesday morning’s draw.

Lisa Robertson scored either side of an Emma Brownlie effort, with Katey Turner then bagging a brace to make it 5-0 at the halfway point.

Chelsea Cornet got on the scoresheet next, with Turner then winning and converting a penalty to seal her hat-trick.

Robertson also completed a treble, while Kirsty Smith rounded off the scoring from long range with the last kick of the match.

City hit six

Glasgow City hit a half-dozen to progress at another lower division side in Jeanfield Swifts.

They took nearly half an hour to break down the SWPL 2 team though, with Joelle Murray heading home a long ball.

Katie McCabe opened her City account and 6 minutes later scored again from an Abbi Grant ball, who then scored herself.

After the interval, Jo Love netted via the bar and the scoring was all over in the 50th minute as McCabe got her third from 30 yards out.

Rangers roll over Accies

Rangers complete the semi-final line-up after a 3-0 success at Hamilton Academical, where all the goals came in the second half.

Amy Muir’s free-kick evaded everyone and nestled in the bottom corner to break the deadlock and minutes later the lead was doubled with a deflected own-goal.

Hayley Sinclair got the third goal when winning possession and lobbing the keeper.

Celtic close in on Spartans

Celtic are a single point behind third-placed Spartans in SWPL 1, after defeating them 3-0.

Two goals arrived in the space of 10 minutes midway through the opening period, as Kirsty Howat netted after a mazy run and Ruesha Littlejohn fired a penalty home.

Natalie Ross set up the last goal on 52 minutes, Howat smashing the ball into the net for her second of the day.
