Rangers shock Spartans
 Women's Football News 17 Apr 2009
Rangers booked their place in their first ever Final after a shock 6-5 win over Spartans after extra time in the semi finals of the Unite Scottish Cup.
With Spartans sitting third in the Premier League and Rangers leading the First Division, many expected Spartans to progress with ease and within the first few minutes of the match this looked to be the case when Spartans' Debbie McWhinnie converted unmarked in the six yard box.
Against the run of play, Rangers then got an equaliser through striker Natasha Anderson. Soon Spartans restored their dominance when Claire Crosbie headed in a McWhinnie corner and Scotland striker Diana Barry made it 3-1 to Spartans before half time.
While Spartans had dominated the first half and were worthy of their lead, the second half was a much more even contest and nerves began to creep into the Spartans play when Raud Houston and then Claire Ray made it 3-3. Natasha Anderson then put Rangers in front with a superb composed finish, but Crosbie hit back for Spartans to take it to extra time.
In extra time, Rangers took the lead for the second time in the match, with Anderson securing her hat-trick. Spartans hit back yet again in what was proving a pulsating match through an excellent finish from Barry.
Barry's goal galvanised her side and Spartans looked the hungrier team and had Rangers camped in their own half. However, five minutes into the second period of extra time Rangers hit Spartans on the break with Anderson lobbing the Spartans keeper for another excellent finish to claim her fourth of the match and what proved to be the decisive winner for her side.
Rangers will face Glasgow City in the Final at Forthbank Stadium, Stirling on 17th May, with the match being screened live on BBC Alba.
