The last three quarter final places in the Scottish Women's Premier League Cup were decided when the final round of group matches were played on Sunday.
Second place was up for grabs in the last Group B match and it was Dundee Utd who went through by winning 4-2 away to Kilmarnock. United went two ahead inside the opening half hour, thanks to Jade McLaren and Rachel Todd, but Killie fought back to level the scores through Laura Neil and Shelley Campbell and United were reduced to ten players when McLaren was red carded. Tammy Harkin then restored United's lead with twenty minutes remaining and Danni McGinley went on to seal the victory.
Hamilton Academical started the day in second place in Group C but were facing the toughest of tasks as they took on Glasgow City. Taylor Fisher, Ode Fulutudilu, Vital Kats, Tyler Dodds, Agata Coelho Pimenta and Jo Love all scored a goal apiece as City ran out 6-0 winners to ensure they completed their group matches with a 100% record.
This allowed Spartans an opportunity to replace the Accies as group runners-up and they accepted the chance by beating Glasgow Women 4-0. Becky Galbraith spearheaded the win for Spartans by hitting a hat-trick and Sarah Clelland weighed in with the other goal.
The last match in Group D was to be a decisive one as Hearts took on Partick Thistle, with a three point gap between the two teams. Hearts required a three-goal victory in order to get through but it was Thistle who secured second place and qualification as the match finished goalless.
Rangers had already guaranteed themselves top spot in Group A and rounded off their matches with a fourth straight victory, 4-0 against Boroughmuir Thistle. Lizzie Arnot gave them the lead just after the half hour and Jodi McLeary made it two a minute later. Rachel McLauchlan and Emma Watson sewed up the win for Rangers with further goals after the break.
In the other game, Motherwell were 3-2 winners away to Queen's Park. After a goalless first half, Gill Inglis put Motherwell in front two minutes after the restart but the Spiders then struck twice through Abbi McDonald and Holly McIndoe. However, two goals in a minute then turned the match Motherwell's way again, Chelsie Watson and Claire Crosbie both scoring as the Women of Steel ended their matches on a winning note.
