At Petershill Park, it was a meeting between two sides with a historic rivalry in the Semi-Final. Glasgow City have had the better of the Edinburgh side in recent times but Hibs have enjoyed success, especially in cup matches.

That success returned for Hibs as they have put themselves one victory away from lifting the cup for a record eighth time. Former City forward, Krystyna Freda with both goals either side of the half-time whistle before City made it a dramatic finish. Mairead Fulton got the goal to make it 2-1 but it wasn’t enough for City.

Over in Edinburgh in the other Semi-Final, Rangers reached their first ever SWPL Cup Final with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Spartans. The away side took an early lead with Chelsea Cornet scoring with a wonderful chip from just inside the box. Kayla McCoy doubled their lead before half-time, slotting home the penalty for her first goal in the competition this season.

Finnish international, Jenny Danielsson, started the second-half scoring. Brogan Hay with her second assist of the game putting it on a plate for the forward. Lizzie Arnot got the final goal of the game, tucking the ball into the net from close range to secure Rangers’ place in the Final on 11 December.
