Aberdeen FC Women are through to the quarter finals of the SSE Scottish Women's Cup after they claimed their second successive SWPL scalp with a 3-1 victory over FC Kilmarnock.
Highly rated youngster Bayley Hutchison opened the scoring for the Dons and Francesca Ogilvie increased their lead on the stroke of half time. Colette Fleming reduced the arrears for Killie early in the second half via a free kick but Ogilvie secured the win with twelve minutes remaining when she scored her second goal.
Celtic also booked their place in the last eight but needed to be patient when winning 2-0 against St Johnstone. The visitors defended stoutly against their higher division opponents but the deadlock was broken on the hour when Chloe Craig scored from the penalty spot. Craig went on to seal matters when she rose highest to head home an Emma Black free kick.
A strong first half performance saw Rangers to a 4-0 success away to Forfar Farmington. Holly Napier, Hannah Robertson and an own goal gave them a three-goal lead going into the interval, with Shelley Campbell adding the fourth during the second half.
Cup holders Hibernian ran out 7-1 winners over Hearts in their local derby tie to maintain their firm grip on the trophy. It was Hearts who took the lead through Dani McGinley but after Siobhan Hunter had levelled the scores, Colette Cavanagh fired Hibs in front on the stroke of half time with a 25-yard strike. After the break, Hunter netted twice more to complete her hat-trick, Shannon Leishman added a brace and Rachael Boyle also got on the scoresheet.
Inverness Caledonian Thistle's cup run was brought to an end as they were beaten 5-0 by Motherwell. Caley goalkeeper Kim Jappy did save an early penalty from Chelsea McEachran but Abby Callaghan soon put Motherwell in front and Katie Rice doubled their advantage. McEachran then netted twice before half time and Kerry Montgomery rounded off the scoring during the second half.
Glasgow City eased through with a 20-goal blast against SWFL side Dundee City whilst Hamilton Academical netted a dozen times without reply past Clyde.
Queen's Park are the other SWPL club, along with Aberdeen, still in the competition after they defeated Dunfermline Athletic 4-2 at Lesser Hampden. Ashley McKeown was on target twice for the Spiders, along with Frances Fern and Sarah Wardlaw.
