Last season's beaten Scottish Women's Premier League Cup finalists Hibernian went through to the quarter finals of this season's competition with a 1-0 victory over Celtic in the tie of the First Round.
A closely fought game was settled when Lizzie Arnot scored with a powerful strike from the edge of the area with nineteen minutes played.
Holders Glasgow City began their defence of the trophy in style with a 14-0 thumping of Inverness City. Irish international Clare Shine netted a hat-trick and Joanne Love, Ruesha Littlejohn, Sarah Crilly and Erin Cuthbert all secured doubles in this free scoring game. 16-year-old Brogan Hay netted her first ever senior goal for the first team after signing from the City youth academy at the start of the new season and was joined by Scotland Under 19 international Carla Boyce on the scoresheet.
The biggest cheer of the day came with fifteen minutes left to play when Fiona Brown came on as substitute after spending most of last season out with a knee injury and with virtually her second touch of the match, cut inside and rifled a terrific curling shot into the corner of the net.
Aberdeen ended the hopes of Jeanfield Swifts with a 5-0 victory. Nikki Smith and Shannon McGregor were each on target twice for the Dons, with Loren Campbell also getting on the scoresheet.
In the other all-SWPL 1 tie, four extra time goals saw Spartans on their way to a 5-1 win against Stirling University. Trisha McLoughlin gave Spartans a lead which was cancelled out by Jade Gallon but in the extra period, McLoughlin went on to complete a hat-trick with Alana Marshall, from the penalty spot, and Laura Gavin adding the others.
Rangers were also 5-1 winners over Hamilton Academical to ease into the last eight. Kirsty McLaughlin marked her debut for the 'Gers by scoring after just 34 seconds and they went on to add further goals through Claire Adams, Lisa Swanson, Chantelle Brown and Katey Turner.
Lauren Evans was on target twice and Samantha McManus added the others as Glasgow Girls progressed by beating Hutchison Vale 3-1.
