Boroughmuir Thistle needed extra-time to see off Raith Rovers, as did another home side, with East Fife edging out Westerlands thanks to a Teri Skivington double.

Deveronvale were a third team to win in 120 minutes but they did it by a three-goal margin away from home at Westdyke. Vicky Wood bagged a brace in Blackburn United’s 3-2 scoreline against Cove Rangers but it was a bullet-header from Shannon Mulligan that won the game.

Queens Park saw off Stirling University Development 3-0, with a Ceara MacIntyre penalty sealing the win.

Chloe Devine not only opened her account for Renfrew but hit a hat-trick in the 8-3 victory over Dee Ladies.

Elsewhere, Thistle Weir went through 3-1 at the expense of Falkirk.
