A determined Glasgow City came from behind to beat Hibs 3-1 and progress to the final of the SWF Cup.
Mhari Smith's opener had given Hibs the lead within 15 minutes, but an Aimee Morrison header just before the break, and goals from Lyndsay McCall and substitute Rebecca Welsh in the second half gave City the victory in a pulsating encounter at Kilwinning Sports Centre.
It was City who started brightest, Annie Early and Olivia Crawford combining to get the ball into the Hibernian box. A massive scramble ensued and Arlene Carr's effort was blocked, with Hibs defending in numbers.
Hibs first attack was foiled by a great tackle from Chloe Gilfoyle on Caitlin Ross before Kirsty Jeffries fired the loose ball over.
The opening 15 was a tight affair, a fantastic diagonal ball from City's Katie Gardner Rice at left-back over to Crawford released the winger to fire a shot just wide while under pressure from a defender, only for Hibs to then put away the opener up the other end. Strong play by Shannon McNamara in the centre of the pitch gave her the room to play a through ball for Smith who dragged the keeper to the near post and fired a shot back across her, off the post and in.
With not a lot between the teams it was a heavy blow for City but they responded in the right manner. Danielle Gallagher hitting a speculative effort from the left wing that almost caught the backpedaling Whitney McMahon out in the Hibs goal, but it dropped just wide of the far post.
City keeper Erin Clachers had a scary moment of her own when Jeffries closed her down as she went to make a clearance but the ball rebounded off the advancing striker and went harmlessly by.
Early for City was sitting in the defensive midfield role and picking passes forward, while Lyndsay McCall was dropping deep up front to make it a packed City midfield as they aimed to boss Hibs in the middle third.
Ross came up against Gilfoyle again and once more it was the City defender who came up trumps, with another solid defensive block. Then Jeffries and Smith were stopped by Rice as the City defence held firm in a bid to prevent Hibs from stretching their lead.
The defensive work paid off as City grabbed a goal of their own a minute before the break. Crawford's cross from the right-wing looked perfect for Lynsey Carlyle to knock home at the back post but she took a touch and the defence were quick to close her down before McCall eventually got a shot off that was saved by the keeper for a corner. McCall's deep corner was headed back across goal by Crawford and Morrison was in the perfect place to head it home into the centre of the goal.
Buoyed by the goal, City almost grabbed the lead before the break under similar circumstances. Another corner and this time Crawford headed for goal herself, only to see it hooked clear off the goal line brilliantly by Megan Reilly. It would have been sickening for Hibs to go in behind at half-time after leading just two minutes before so it was a timely clearance.
The sides went in even at half-time and it was hard to argue with that. Both sides with chances but it was a closely matched contest played in good spirits.
