With the game about the get underway the unfortunate Scottish weather added an extra dimension for the players to consider due to the now wetter surface.
But it didn't cause any difficulty for Sarah Robertson of Rangers who early on created a promising chance. Her low cross was fired into the box but failed to find the feet of her teammates.
Not long after Robertson was involved again, playing the ball out wide to Chantelle Brown. Brown's cross was cleared but only onto the edge of the box, where it was played back towards goal oncemore. This time the ball found its way to number nine, Kirsty Howat who brought it down well before slotting it into the bottom left hand corner.
Glasgow responded brightly and were soon on the attack. The ball was played through the Rangers defence by Kodie Hay finding the feet of Jamie Lee Dearie. She went one on one with Jordan Elliott in the Rangers goal but couldn't really connect with the shot and in the end it was easy for Elliott to gather.
Rangers almost bagged a second before half time. Kirsty Howat took advantage of a short pass but thankfully for Glasgow City Eric Chalmers was on hand to make a fantastic save and deny Howat her second.
