Forfar Farmington staged a second half comeback to win 4-3 at Aberdeen and reach the quarter finals of the Scottish Women's Premier League Cup.
Becca Dempster put the home side ahead via a free kick and she scored her second to put her side in control leading up to the break. Ten minutes into the second half, Rachael Small reduced the arrears for Forfar and Holly Napier brought her side back on level terms just after the hour. Dempster sent Aberdeen back in front once again as she completed her hat-trick but Forfar hit back strongly, Julia Scott equalising once again following a good move. The game seemed to heading towards extra time but Forfar came up with a sting in the tail - Nicky Grant firing home a strike from outside the area to give her side a victory which had looked unlikely at one stage.
Celtic had a much smoother route into the last eight as they gave a baptism of fire to league newcomers Kilwinning. Suzanne Grant gave them the lead before Abi Harrison netted twice, with Heather Richards and Chloe Craig also finding the net before the break. In the second half, Grant went on to claim a four-goal haul in total whilst Harrison netted her hat-trick goal, with Rhonda Jones also getting on the scoresheet.
Former Cup winners Spartans were given a hard time by Falkirk before emerging as 4-2 extra time winners. Emma Lyons netted the only goal of the first half for Falkirk and they doubled their lead after the break through Kerry Kennedy. Sarah Ewens reduced the arrears for Spartans on the hour and although Lyons hit the bar with a free kick at the other end, Spartans pressure increased and they forced the extra period when Diana Barry equalised with a minute left on the clock. In extra time, Ewens netted her second and debutant Elliss Jenkins finally made the game safe with the fourth goal.
The other newly promoted side, Buchan Ladies, found themselves with a tough tie against Rangers and a well contested tie was settled when Kathryn Hill scored the only goal of the game during the first half.
