Clare shines as City lift Cup
 Women's Football SFA News - 30 Nov 2019
Glasgow City 4 (McSorley 36, Crichton 39, Shine 71,90)
Hibernian 3 (Gallacher 31, Napier 49, Ross og 60)
att: 3,123; at Tynecastle Park

Glasgow City ended Hibernian's recent domination of the SSE Scottish Women's Cup in dramatic fashion as a last minute winner gave them victory in a pulsating Final at Tynecastle Park.
The two clubs have duopolised the competition in the last sixteen years but this was surely the most memorable meeting between the two clubs during that time. Republic of Ireland international Clare Shine was the heroine for Glasgow City with two late goals, including a stunning individual effort for the winner, but several players in each side made huge contributions in front of an attendance of 3,123 - a record for a Scottish Women's Cup Final.
The game took a little while to warm up with not too much goalmouth action in the opening twenty minutes, but began to come to life as Kirsty Howat fired a shot inches over from distance. Sam Kerr and Shine both had efforts comfortably saved by Jenna Fife, and Shine also fired wide as City enjoyed a good spell.
It was Hibernian though, who opened the scoring just after the half hour as Jamie-Lee Napier made a driving run at the City defence before finding Colette Cavanagh out wide, where her low cross was slotted home from close range by Amy Gallacher.
City's response was a quick one, Hibernian being unable to clear from a corner and a miscued clearance by Shannon McGregor found its way to Eilish McSorley who fired the ball past Fife for the equaliser.
Just three minutes later, City were on the attack again and Hayley Lauder's cross was diverted past Fife by Leanne Crichton to put City ahead for the first time.
The match was turned on its head once again as the second half got underway; first, McGregor broke down the right for Hibernian and crossed for the impressive Napier to plant her shot past Lee Alexander to level the scores once again.
Hibs continued to press and a teasing cross from Napier picked out Cavanagh whose header brought out a fine point blank save from Alexander. Their good spell was to bring its reward though and an attempted clearance by Alexander, under pressure from Amy Muir, was intercepted by Gallacher and in her efforts to block, Leanne Ross could only divert Gallacher's resulting shot past her own goalkeeper.
Once again, CIty hit back strongly after going behind with Crichton drilling a shot just past the post and Lauder being denied by an excellent block from Hibs captain Joelle Murray. The pressure was to tell though and with twenty minutes remaining, parity was restored once again when a Lauder corner picked out Shine at the far post, where the striker powered a firm header into the net.
Extra time was looming but the match was to have a sting in the tail. As injury time began, Shine chased a long ball forward and sped towards goal, getting past two defenders before cutting inside and sending a left foot shot inside the far top corner, giving Fife no chance.
There was little time for Hibs to reply as City could celebrate clinching the double and narrowly getting the better of a memorable Final.
