Celtic needed extra-time to see off Hearts, after a goalless 90 minutes. Chloe Craig had hit the bar for Celtic in normal time, Shen Mengyu denied by the post early in the added half-hour. Charlie Wellings eventually made the breakthrough on 108 minutes and quickly struck again.

Glasgow City went ahead courtesy of a Cara McBrearty own-goal off Mairead Fulton’s corner, but Partick Thistle swiftly levelled through Cheryl McCulloch. Lauren Davidson restored the advantage on 20 minutes and Priscila Chinchilla got City’s third in the last dozen minutes.
