Hibs lift Scottish Cup
 Women's Football News 15 Nov 2010
Hibernian lifted the last domestic honours of the new playing season, defeating Rangers 2-1 at Recreation Park, Alloa to win the Unite Scottish Cup.
Following five successive League defeats, not many gave Rangers a chance in this match, but they stunned the favourites on 11 minutes by taking the lead through Lesley McMaster. A short corner was fired into the box by Lisa Swanson and McMaster poked home past Shannon Lynn in the Hibernian net.
Playing 4-5-1, Rangers were proving hard to break down and were looking to attack Hibs on quick counter attacks. Hibernian meanwhile were enjoying lots of possession, but every chance they had seemed to have lady luck working against them.
A Lisa Robertson shot from just inside the box cannoned off the bar and captain Rhonda Jones saw her header from a corner also come back off the upright. A further shot from Robertson came back off the post and Rangers cleared a goalbound effort off the line, in a first half which must have had Hibernian thinking this was not to be their day.
The second half became similar to the first, until Hibernian brought on wide player Joelle Murray. The Hibernian and Scotland midfielder gave her side the width they needed and it was her cross which produced a chance for Laura Kennedy and she headed past Lucy Cook in the Rangers goal to put her side on level terms.
With Rangers beginning to look out on their feet, it seemed only a matter of time before Hibernian scored the winner and with seven minutes remaining this proved to be the case when Jenna Ross headed home another Hibernian cross.
A delighted Hibs boss, Willie Kirk said after the game: "I am delighted for the girls and it gives them something tangible for all of their hard work for the last ten months. Going behind so early was not ideal, but at the time I thought it might be good for us as it would spark us into life.
"However, as the game wore on and we hit the woodwork three times, I was starting to think this was not our day. But the girls remained very patient and got the reward they deserved at the end. I am really delighted for them. They have had some outstanding performances in the Scottish Cup this year and deserve their winners medals."
