Glasgow City progressed to the Scottish Women's Premier League Cup Final with a 4-0 victory over first time semi finalists Forfar Farmington.
City started the game on the front foot and within two minutes Leanne Crichton had a good shot from the edge of the box which flew just over the bar. A minute later and Jane Ross hit a left foot effort just wide of the far post as she drove across the edge of the box after receiving a throw in. Lisa Evans was next to try her luck but Cat Fitzimmons in the Forfar goal tipped the striker's effort over the bar. From the resultant corner Fitsimmons saved again this time from Emma Mitchell as the American began to show the kind of form which was soon to see her keep her side in the game with a string of excellent first half saves.
City goalkeeper Lee Alexander was also soon active as she saved a shot from Caroline Heron as the Forfar striker raced through on goal. That was to eventually prove one of only three efforts Forfar had in the match, with City creating 34 efforts in a game they came to dominate in possession and chances over the ninety minutes.
Emma Mitchell hit the post midway through the first half, before Evans opened the scoring on 31 minutes. Receiving the ball out wide from Rachel Corsie, Evans cut inside the full back and hit a low powerful shot in the bottom corner to beat Fitzimmons.
The Forfar keeper made two other excellent saves in the closing minutes of the first half to deny Mitchell and Emma Fernon in particular as City went in at the break 1-0 ahead.
Twelve minutes after the restart, Leanne Ross made it 2-0 with a brilliant strike from outside the box into the top corner. A few moments later, Eilish McSorley was denied by a goal line clearance from the Forfar back line, but the City defender was not to be denied as sixty seconds later she fired a powerful low effort past Fitzimmons from a City corner.
Jane Ross then rounded off a great performance by Glasgow City, scoring her side's fourth of the evening on 65 minutes after Fitzimmons could only parry an initial Evans shot.
The Final will take place at Recreation Park, the home of Alloa FC, on Wednesday 30th May.
