The next round of group matches in the Scottish Women's Premier League Cup took place on Sunday and after all of the weather difficulties which plagued the first two rounds, a full house of matches were played this time.
The top two in Group A met each other and it was Celtic who ran out 4-1 winners over Spartans to book their place in the quarter finals. Summer Green put them ahead just before half time and after the break, Sarah Ewens, Kathleen McGovern and Josephine Giard added further goals, with Hannah Galbraith replying. In the other game, St Johnstone got themselves off the mark as a Morgan Steedman double and Ellie Cowie gave them a 3-1 victory over Glasgow Women, whose consolation came from Karsey McGlinchey.
Rangers made it two wins out of two in Group B when they won 3-0 away to Hamilton Academical. Lisa Martinez was on target twice and Megan Bell added the other. Dundee Utd meanwhile belatedly began their campaign with a 5-2 victory against Queen's Park. Trailing to a Jayne Cameron goal at the break, United hit back in the second half with a hat-trick from Tammy Harkin plus other goals from Ellie-Jai Reid and Danni McGinley, before Lauren Coleman netted a further consolation for the Spiders.
After losing their opening group match, Hearts have bounced back with two victories but they will have to wait to find out if this will be enough. They won 2-0 against a resilient Stirling University side on Sunday, taking the lead two minutes before half time through Lisa Swanson. The Jam Tarts wrapped up the victory late on when Taylor Hamill scored the second. The other group game ended with honours even as Boroughmuir Thistle and Aberdeen FC Women battled out a goalless draw.
Forfar Farmington are looking in good shape at the top of Group D after notching up their second straight victory, 2-1 against Motherwell. Billie Simpson scored a goal in each half for Forfar, putting them two ahead before Chelsie Watson pulled one back for Motherwell, however they could not prevent Forfar from avenging their defeat when the sides had met in the league seven days earlier. Forfar will need to avoid defeat in their last group match against Partick Thistle, who fought out a 2-2 draw with Kilmarnock. Thistle got off to a flying start and took the lead on 12 minutes when Suzanne Mulvey scored from the penalty spot, but they passed up another chance from the spot shortly afterwards when Clare Docherty shot over the bar. Killie took advantage by levelling the scores through Monica Harty ten minutes later, but Docherty atoned for her penalty miss shortly afterwards as she put Partick back in front against her former club. Just before the hour mark, a third penalty in the match was awarded, this time to Kilmarnock and Lauren Chisholm slotted home to earn her side a share of the spoils.
