Glasgow City lifted the Scottish Women's Premier League Cup on Saturday afternoon with a 3-1 win over Hibernian at Recreation Park, Alloa.
As Cup holders, City were determined to hold on to their trophy and got off to the perfect start, scoring within the first minute of the kick off. Sue Lappin dispossessed Hibernian's Stacey Cook and released striker Suzanne Malone for a one on one with the Hibs keeper. The keeper saved brilliantly but could only parry wide to City's Katharina Lindner who managed to find the back of the net with the HIbs players clambering back to protect the goal line.
City then went two ahead as Lindner hit a low drive across the goal, which was once again saved by the Hibs keeper, but she again pushed her save wide and this time Suzanne Malone followed up to bury the ball into the back of the net.
City made it 3-0 before half time with a good team move finished off by Suzanne Lappin. Leanne Ross played it wide to Jane Ross who cut in across the box and set up Lappin who curled a well taken shot into the back of the net
The second half was a scrappier affair, compared to some fine football in the first half as Hibs pushed to get back into the game. City remained comfortable and could have added to their lead, creating a number of chances. Hibs did manage to threaten more than they did in the first half, but were reduced to long range efforts as City defended well when required.
Hibs did manage a consolation goal, right on the final whistle when Rhonda Jones rose well to beat the City defence, with what turned out to be the last touch of the ball.
