Forfar Farmington stormed into the next round of the Unite Scottish Cup with a last gasp winner to defeat Inverness City 4-3 after extra time in what was undoubtedly the game of the day.
Flying high in the league, Forfar immediately showed their excellent form and rushed to a 2-0 lead in the opening eight minutes. Inverness managed to pull back level twice as the game finished 3-3 at the end of 90 minutes. However, just as it looked like penalties were on their way Scotland international centre half, Rachael Small popped up with the winner with the last kick of the match, in a cruel twist of fate for Inverness who had worked so hard against the much fancied Forfar.
Caroline Heron (2) and Julia Scott netted the other goals for Forfar while Karen Mason, Marnie McArthur and Hannah Gordon all replied for Inverness.
Glasgow City found the path to the next round very comfortable as they hit fourteen without reply past Cowdenbeath. Leanne Ross and Christie Murray both scored hat-tricks, but most pleasing for City was the return to action of Suzanne Malone after more than a year out injured. Malone proved that, despite her absence, she has not lost sight of where the goal is as she also hit the back of the net after coming off the subs bench. Jane Ross (2), Emma Woolley, Danica Dalziel, Rachel Corsie, Ciara Barnes and Lisa Evans completed the tally.
Celtic ran out 3-0 winners over First Division leaders Aberdeen thanks to goals from Megan Sneddon, Suzanne Grant and young full back Chloe Craig. Spartans meanwhile smashed Kilmarnock 15-0 with four goals each for strike partners Diana Barry and Sarah Ewens. Bobbie Beveridge weighed in with a hat-trick and the total was finished off by Hayley Lauder, Claire Crosbie, Kirsty McLaughlin and Louise Magilton. Rangers were also finding the back of the net easy to come by in a resounding 11-0 win over lower league side Troon.
Toni Mason hit the first for Hamilton as her side defeated Murieston 4-1. Julie Paton got Murieston's consolation goal against the Premier League Accies, whose other strikes came from Ashley McDonald, Helen Templeton and Nichola Sturrock.
Cup holders Hibernian enjoyed a narrow 3-2 win over Hutchison Vale to keep their hopes of retaining the trophy alive, goals coming from Rebecca Dempster, Debbie McWhinnie and Rebecca Zoltie with Laura Dunn and Laura Gavin responding. Emma Lyons, Maxine Lenrod and an own goal ensured that Falkirk defeated Dundee City 3-0.
Celtc Res, who reached the semi finals last year, are embarking on another Cup run thanks to a 3-0 victory over Airdrie Utd. Raith Rovers won 3-1 away to Hibernian 1875 and Queen's Park edged out Hearts 1-0.
Two of the ties went all the way to penalties, Stenhousemuir triumphing over Aberdeen City following a 2-2 draw and Kilwinning won against Forfar Farmington Ladies after the sides had shared eight goals.
Paisley Saints ran out 4-1 winners away to East Fife and Toryglen also progressed with a 4-0 success against Hibernian 2000.
