Glasgow City will meet Hibernian in the SSE Scottish Cup Final after both sides overcame SWPL 2 opposition in their respective semi finals on Sunday.
Four goals from Sarah Crilly, a hat-trick from Clare Shine and a brace from Carla Boyce ensured Glasgow City made it easily through to the SSE Scottish Cup Final after defeating Glasgow Girls 9-0 at Ainslie Park in Edinburgh.
Boyce showed what was to come from the Cup holders as she fired City ahead after only 60 seconds on the clock. Good play from Crilly released Shine and she buried the ball past Storrie in the Glasgow Girls goal to make it 2-0.
Number three arrived from Shine again as she pounced on the keeper's parry after an initial save from a Lauren McMurchie effort. Boyce scored her second and City's fourth goal on 20 minutes firing low into the bottom corner. Crilly buried the ball into the back of the net eight minutes later to make it 5-0 and Shine got her hat-trick on 39 minutes. Crilly finished off an excellent Nicola Docherty cross on the half time whistle to give City a very comfortable seven-goal lead at the break.
City continued to dominate and Crilly hit a looping effort high into the top corner for her hat-trick before getting her fourth and her team's final goal of the game with a clever lob of the keeper after a diagonal ball from Brogan Hay.
Hibernian secured their place in the Final after they beat Hearts 5-0 in the other semi final in the double header. Abi Harrison and Rachel McLauchlan both came close to opening the scoring for Hibernian, before the latter did just that ten minutes before the break. A low cross into the box found McLauchlan, who was on hand to tap into the net from just six yards out.
In the second half, Hibernian did not have to wait long to double their advantage and gain a firmer grip on the proceedings.
Cailin Michie was fouled in the box and a penalty was awarded, which Lizzie Arnot coolly slotted into the net just eleven minutes after the restart.
Hibernian continued to be on top and effectively countered the pressing tactics from their opponents, which brought about a further three goals in the closing stages of the match. Sarah Ewens embarked on a great solo run, before she picked out Arnot with a pass and the winger fired the ball into the net through the legs of the goalkeeper.
Ten minutes later and Arnot had completed her hat-trick. She received the ball in the middle of the park before driving towards the box, where the number seven was able to rifle an effort beyond the 'keeper. In injury time, some gloss was added to the scoreline when Ewens smashed the ball into the roof of the net from six yards out.
The SSE Scottish Cup Final will take place on Sunday 6th November, 3pm kick off at Hamilton's Superseal Stadium.
