City take treble chance
 Women's Football News 12 Nov 2012
City take treble chance - 12 Nov 2012 - Women's Football NewsGlasgow City completed a historic domestic treble after lifting the Scottish Cup with a 1-0 win over Forfar Farmington at Airdrie's Excelsior Stadium. 
City last won the treble in 2009 and have now become the only side ever to complete the magnificent feat twice after Danica Dalziel put the Cup holders into a first half lead which in the end proved decisive enough to lift the trophy.
Living up to their tag as strong favourites after four defeats of Forfar already this season, City showed their intent after only five minutes on the clock when striker Jane Ross broke through into the box, only to see her well hit shot expertly saved by Catherine Fitzsimmons in the Forfar goal.
That save was to prove the first of many as Forfar's American-born number one went on to produce a string of magnificent saves to not only keep her side in the game, but also to deservedly win her the Player of the Match award.
Great play from Leanne Ross, who produced a magnificent captain's performance on the day, sent Jane Ross free down the right. The striker beat the full back before cutting the ball back to the penalty spot to meet the run of Leanne Ross, but her strike just edged past the post, in what would have been a fantastic opener for the Cup holders.
Further chances came and went for City as Danica Dalziel met a Emma Mitchell cross, but her effort went narrowly wide for City once more.
Forfar's first chance came after 14 minutes when a misplaced pass from City's keeper Claire Johnstone put her under pressure, but she retrieved the situation expertly and ended the danger.
Another great ball from Leanne Ross put Emma Mitchell free down the right and her pinpoint cross to Jane Ross was met beautifully by the striker, but her effort came down off the underside of the bar, with the referee ruling the ball did not cross the line.
Fitzsimmons came to Forfar's rescue once more saving a good Mitchell shot, but could do nothing to prevent City taking the lead when a Nicky Docherty cross was bulleted home by the head of Danica Dalziel.
Forfar had their first real effort on 43 minutes when Rachael Small hit a long range effort, but Claire Johnstone took the shot comfortably.
Emma Mitchell tried to double her side's advantage with a half volley inside the box, but once more Fitzsimmons proved equal to the task.
Soon after the break Fitzimmons produced the save of the match, tipping a powerful Jane Ross effort over the bar. Mitchell shot just wide and then had another effort saved by the Forfar number one.
Substitute Ruesha Littlejohn shot inches past the post on 65 minutes and Jane Ross fired a good opportunity wide with fifteen minutes to go.
Sue Lappin came on for Emma Mitchell and almost scored a fantastic second for City when she met a City corner first time, but her volley just crept over the bar to leave the scoreline 1-0.
