Celtic sweep into last eight
 Women's Football News 22 Aug 2008
 
Celtic stormed into the quarter finals of the Scottish Women's Premier League Cup, thanks to an impressive 9-1 victory over Aberdeen.
 
The two teams had met in the SWPL the previous Sunday with Celtic winning 3-0 on that occasion, and the Hoops got off to a good start as Claire Gemmell gave them the lead after five minutes. Karen McInally, Becky Stokes and Jennifer Beattie weighed in with further goals before half time.
 
After the interval, Aberdeen gave themselves some hope by pulling a goal back but Celtic responded swiftly with Christie Murray restoring the deficit before Gemmell completed her double. Suzanne Malone added the seventh, Murray grabbed her second goal from the penalty spot and Hayley Cunningham rounded off the victory with a long range strike.
 
Spartans, winners of the competition two seasons ago, made it safely through to the last eight by winning 4-1 away to Forfar Farmington. Debbie McWhinnie, Hayley Lauder, Kate McGillivray and player manager Shelley Kerr were all on target for the Edinburgh side.
 
The other team to progress to the quarter finals were FC Kilmarnock, thanks to a 3-0 victory at Raith Rovers. Amy McDonald, Jo Cooper and Laura Cooper netted the goals for Killie.
 
The draw for the quarter finals has been announced and Cup holders Hibernian, who had received a bye in the First Round, have been drawn at home to league newcomers Boroughmuir Thistle. The other newly promoted side, Dundee Utd, have landed a tough away draw to in-form Celtic. The tie of the round sees FC Kilmarnock take on Champions Glasgow City whilst Spartans' reward for their victory is a home tie with Hamilton Academicals.
 
The weather has played havoc with the scheduled SWPL fixtures in midweek with only one of the five matches managing to go ahead. After their opening day defeat, Hibernian recorded their first victory of the season when beating Boroughmuir Thistle 3-0.
