Dryburgh Athletic and Rossvale both won through to the Scottish Women’s Championship and League One Cup Final.

Dryburgh were 30 seconds from a penalty shootout against Ayr United after a tightly contested 120 minutes, when Stacey McFadyen latched on to a ball at the corner of the box and poked it under Sarah Ferguson in the Ayr goal to set up a third final appearance in a row.

Rossvale goal-machine Megan Whiteford scored a hat-trick in a 5-2 win over Renfrew in the second semi-final of the day at Kelty Hearts FC, grabbing the second final spot for the Championship leaders.

Sarah Wardlaw and Lauren Coleman also scored for the Glasgow side, with Renfrew skipper Emma Baird and Holly McIndoe scoring for Renfrew.

The two winners will face off on the 21 April at the Indodrill Stadium in Alloa.
