Hibs' extra time joy
 Women's Football News 19 May 2008
Four goals in extra time brought the Unite Scottish FA Cup Final to an exciting close, and secured the trophy once again for Hibernian who retained the Cup with a 3-1 victory over Celtic.
Celtic had the better of the first half chances and Suzanne Malone had the ball in the net early on, but the offside flag was raised. She was caught offside again later in the half after a darting run along the right flank as Celtic continued to press for the opener. Hibs looked comfortable soaking up the pressure, with captain Michelle Kerr making some key interceptions and there was plenty of commitment from both sides, with strong tackles flying in.
Celtic started the second half in the same vein, but Hibs began to enjoy more possession and carved out a number of chances as Suzanne Grant's pace began to cause problems for the Celtic defence. Both sides had opportunities to win the game, but it remained goalless after 90 minutes.
A thrilling half hour of extra time followed, as Hibs all but wrapped up the game with two goals in the first period from Joelle Murray and Mandy Burns. The second half had barely started before the net bulged twice more. Grant bagged Hibs' third with a fine long range effort, before substitute Leanne Crichton pulled one back for Celtic.
