Goals from Suzanne Lappin, Denise O'Sullivan and Jo Love gave Glasgow City a well deserved 3-0 win over Hibernian to lift the SWPL League Cup for the third successive season.
City were hot favourites going into the match to lift their ninth consecutive domestic trophy and they did not disappoint.
Suzanne Lappin got the party underway after only nine minutes when she diverted her header past Hannah Reid in the Hibs goal following an Abbi Grant cross. Despite dominating proceedings for the rest of the first half, the Cup holders were unable to add to their lead until after the break when Denise O'Sullivan buried a shot into the back of net after a Lappin flick on.
City and Scotland midfielder Jo Love made it number three midway through the second period as she headed home a short corner whipped into the box by Fiona Brown.
A delighted City Head Coach, Eddie Wolecki Black said after the game: "We knew there was a chance for us to be the first team to win this trophy three times in a row and that was obviously a huge motivation for us.
"I felt we performed very well on the night, passed the ball with a purpose and always looked a threat. Hibs had lost a couple of players in the build up to this game, but we were focused on making sure that never resulted in a dip in our own performance.
"It is particularly pleasing for the new players, some who have tasted winning a trophy for the first time and hopefully they go on to many more after this one. Everybody contributes towards success at this club and I would like to go on record and thank everyone for their efforts so far and I am sure they now know that hard work does pay dividends. It takes two teams to make a final and I thought Hibs competed very well."
