Spartans have had a good record in the Scottish Women's Premier League Cup in recent seasons and they have started off well this time around, reaching the quarter finals with a 1-0 win away to Rangers on the opening day of the women's football season.
Winners of the trophy under their former name and runners-up in five of the last seven years, the tie of the round looked to be heading towards extra time with the scoreline goalless but four minutes into injury time, Sarah Ewens popped up to score the only goal of the game and send last season's league runners-up tumbling out.
Hibernian, beaten finalists last season, made a strong start by running out 8-0 winners over Hamilton Academical. Joelle Murray, Lucy Graham and Katey Turner all scored twice with Lia Tweedie and Clare Williamson also getting on the scoresheet for Chris Roberts' side.
Eight different players scored one apiece as Celtic gave newly promoted Hearts a baptism of fire, also winning 8-0. Despite fielding a much-changed side from last season, Celtic were quickly into their stride with Kirstin McGuire giving them a tenth minute lead and Chloe Craig added a second from the penalty spot. Joanne Paton marked her debut by making it three and Kylla Sjoman put the Hoops further ahead in the opening minute of the second half. Ruesha Littlejohn added the fifth with McManus, Cara McBrearty and Johnston completing the scoring.
