Hibernian and Motherwell in Final
 Women's Football SFA News - 19 Oct 2018
 
Hibernian are one match away from maintaining their stranglehold on the SSE Scottish Women's Cup after they defeated Glasgow City 2-1 in the semi finals on Sunday.
 
In the first of the semi final double header at the Forthbank Stadium, it was Hibernian who started strongly and they took the lead on fourteen minutes, Kirstin Reilly converting a cross from Rachel McLauchlan. Glasgow City responded well to the setback and came close to getting themselves back on level terms when Kirsty Howat had a shot saved by Jenna Fife. After the break, Lidija Kulis hit the post as City continued to press but Hibernian remained firm at the back whilst also looking dangerous on the break. This proved to be the case when a Hibs counter attack ended with them winning a corner, where Emma Brownlie's kick carried to the far post for Joelle Murray to drive a shot past Lee Alexander and increase her side's lead. City did not give up and were given a lifeline through a Siobhan Hunter own goal with three minutes remaining but they could not force another breakthrough. For the first time since 2010, Glasgow City will not be in the Scottish Cup Final whilst Hibernian have their sights firmly set on a third successive triumph in the competition.
 
Hibs' opponents in the Final will be Motherwell, who won 3-1 against Spartans in the other semi final.
 
The newly crowned SWPL 2 Champions have become the first team from the second tier to reach the Final since the league's re-organisation but they came under pressure during the early stages as Spartans twice came close to taking the lead. It was Motherwell who struck first though, Megan Burns' deflected header finding the net following a corner. Spartans continued to attack though and it brought reward when Tegan Reynolds brought them back on level terms, following good work on the right by Rachel Walkingshaw. Motherwell went back in front ten minutes into the second half from another corner, Kerry Montgomery forcing the rebound home after her original header had been blocked. Kaela McDonald-Nguah almost levelled matters once again when she hit the bar with a header but Motherwell sealed the game late on, Caitlin Russell heading in at the far post from a cross by Katey Turner.
 
The Final will take place at Firhill Stadium, home of Partick Thistle FC, on Sunday 4th November with a 4.10pm kick off.
