Glasgow City are one step away from retaining the Henson Scottish Cup after they defeated Hibernian 3-0 in their semi final.
Their opponents will be Forfar Farmington who won 2-1 against Hamilton Academicals after extra time in the other semi final to reach the Final for the first time in their history.
City had been Hibernian 8-1 when the sides met in the Scottish Women's Premier League a few days earlier but found their opponents much tougher to break down this time although Leanne Crichton did hit the bar early on. The deadlock was broken on the half hour when Leanne Ross crossed for Emma Mitchell to head home.
Mitchell struck again before half time, the in-form midfielder beating Shannon Lynn with a powerful strike from the edge of the area which went in off the post.
Susan Fairlie went close for Hibs early in the second half but City were to sew up victory when a Danica Dalziel cross picked out Joanne Love to head in the third and match clinching goal.
Forfar went into their game with Hamilton as favourites but the Accies were defending a good unbeaten run in recent weeks and the opening stages were all square as the game flowed from end to end.
Forfar goalkeeper Cat Fitzsimmons made an outstanding save from a Carolina Richardson free kick to keep her side on level terms and the scoreline was goalless at the interval.
Two minutes into the second half, Forfar took the lead when Lucy Graham headed in from a corner. It looked as though Farmington would be on their way to victory but with less than twenty minutes left, Clare Gemmell levelled the scores and with no further scoring, the match went into extra time.
After just thirty seconds of the extra period, Nicky Grant scored from an acute angle to put Forfar back in front. The game remained in the balance until the end but this time Forfar held on for victory.
The Final will be played at Airdrie's Excelsior Stadium on Sunday 11th November.
