SWPL Cup Quarter Final: Forfar Farmington 2 Stirling University 0

Forfar Farmington progressed to the semi finals of the Scottish Women’s Premier League Cup with a 2-0 win at home to Stirling University.

First half goals from Kayleigh Brough and Cassie Cowper sealed the win for Farmington with both sides struggling to break down the opposite defences.

The first half hour of the game was essentially a non event with neither side creating anything of note.

The first chance of the game came in the 33rd minute; Cheryl Kilcoyne cutting the ball back for Megan McCarthy however her effort was blocked.

Katy Morris failed to trouble Fiona McNicoll with Stirling’s first opportunity while at the other end McGinley and Nicola Davidson all came close.

The deadlock was broken seven minutes before the break; Kilcoyne saw a shot pushed wide and from Robyn Smith’s corner Tammy Harkin flicked the ball on with Kayleigh Brough stabbing home from close range.

The lead was doubled four minutes later as Smith swung a cross in from deep territory and Cassie Cowper was lingering at the back post to head past Logan.

Farmington looked to add to their lead at the start with Smith sending a cross-cum-shot inches over the bar before Kirsty Deans and Cowper came close.

Tammy Harkin nodded over from a Smith corner and Stirling’s first chance of the second half came just after the hour mark when sub Beth McKay sent a free kick just past the post.

Late on McCarthy sent a header into the sidenetting from a McGinley throw and Brough could have had a second in added time as she was set up by Cowper but she was crowded out by the Stirling defence.

The result caps off a pleasing few months for the club with two semi finals in the League and Scottish Cups to go along with their SBSSWPL2 championship.
