Spartans kept up their excellent recent record in the Scottish Women's Premier League Cup on Wednesday night, beating local rivals Hibernian 2-1 to reach the Final for the fourth consecutive year.
Louise Mason got Spartans off to the perfect start, giving them the lead with only four minutes on the clock after dispossessing Siobhan Hunter and finishing past Hibs goalkeeper Jenna Fyfe. Kirsty McLaughlin almost put them two ahead before the interval but her lob came back off the post.
After the break, Hibs stepped up the pressure in search of an equaliser but the Spartans defence stood firm and on 66 minutes, they doubled their lead through a neat finish from Sarah Ewens.
Katey Turner gave Hibernian late hope when she pulled a goal back with three minutes remaining but Spartans held out to make it through to the Final once again and wiped out memories of their 7-1 league defeat to Hibs back in March.
Spartans will now be aiming to go one better this time around after finishing as runners-up on each of the last three occasions, and they were also beaten Finalists in 2008. They have however lifted the trophy in the past, under their former name of Edinburgh Ladies when they beat Hibernian 4-1 in the Final with goals from Diana Barry (2), Debbie McWhinnie and Molly McKran back in November 2006.
