Aberdeen U-23s won through 5-2 at Dunfermline Athletic and Hibernian U-23s eliminated East Fife 3-1, with goals from Nicole Rutherford, Ellie-Jai Reid and Jamie-Lee Smith.

There were two top-flight SWFL games, as Deveronvale got off the mark when edging Dee Ladies 1-0 in the North and in the South, Cumbernauld Colts beat hosts Boroughmuir Thistle by the best of five goals, two coming from Frances Fern.

Two Division 2 Cup ties needed extra-time to settle them, as Spartans Development progressed 3-1 at their Motherwell counterparts, with the help of a brace by Leah Boak, while Kelty Hearts put three past Edinburgh Caledonia.

Stonehaven got the only goal of the game at Bishopston and Dryburgh Athletic defeated Airdrie 3-0 with a couple from Steffi Simpson.
