Susan Fairlie scored twice and Caroline Weir the other for Hibs, with the Accies replying through Cheryl McCulloch and an Ainsley Douglas penalty. Hibs gave a debut to goalkeeper Jenna Fife, following the recent departure of Shannon Lynn to Chelsea, and she responded by saving a penalty to help her team to victory.
Forfar Farmington are one step away from a first ever appearance in the Final following a 3-0 win against Hutchison Vale. Caroline Heron latched on to an Abbi Grant pass to give Forfar the lead midway through the first half and Holly Napier quickly added a second. Farmington put the result beyond doubt early in the second half when Heron released Julia Scott to curl home a delightful shot.

Vanessa Silcocks pulled a goal back for Buchan just before half time but the former Cup winners closed the game out after the break to seal their place in the last four.
