Hibs struck three times in extra time to progress into the Scottish Youth Cup final after a second half comeback produced by Celtic. Hibs led at half time after Caley Gibb converted a chance received over the top in the 16th minute. The Hibees doubled their lead after the break when Amy Hay shot hit off the post and in during the 50th minute.
Celtic got themselves back in the game however, strikes from Ellie Jai Reid and Holly Hart in the 55th and 58th minute respectfully meant the tie when into extra time. Despite great performances from both sides, Phoebe Friend gave Hibs the lead once again in the 84th minute before Tegan Bowie bagged herself a brace in the final stages of the game.
The scoring got underway for Hibs in the 16th minute. Anna Dickov sent a ball in over the top to Gibb who tapped the ball under the keeper. As the ball creeped towards the left side of goal, Bowie approached the ball ready to tap it into a vacant net, however, carefully judged the situation by not making contact as she was in an offside position. The goal was subsequently awarded to Gibb as Hibs lead first in the semi-final.
Celtic had a chance to level things soon after as Reid forced Hibs keeper, Mia Smith to make a save in 22nd minute. Reid managed to get a shot away on the right side of goal with the ball looking like it were arriving at the near post until Smith dived low to halt the effort from entering the net.
The side from Glasgow had another opportunity to get themselves back into the game shortly before the break as Hart was through on goal in the 31st minute. The Hibs defence was racing back to catch Hart as she took the ball past the keeper on the right side but her touch that followed was too strong as she couldn’t get on the end of it to slot the ball into the empty net, the Hibs defence then regained possession and cleared away the dangerous effort.
