Glasgow City’s goals were shared out, with Taylor Fisher, Ode Fulutudilu, Vital Kats, Tyler Dodds, Agata Filipa and Jo Love all scoring in their rout of Accies.

Jade McLaren gave Dundee United the lead within four minutes at Kilmarnock and Rachel Todd added to that before the break, but Laura Neil and Shelley Campbell brought the hosts level before goals from Tammy Harkin and Danni McGinley secured United’s qualification behind Hibs.

Rangers had already won Group A ahead of Aberdeen but completed their group campaign with a 4-0 win away to Boroughmuir – Lizzie Arnot, Jodi McLeary, Rachel McLauchlan and Emma Watson with the goals.

Motherwell finish third after a 3-2 win away to Queen’s Park.

Gill Inglis put the visitors ahead, but Abbi McDonald and Holli McIndoe had the Glasgow side ahead before Chelsie Watson equalised and Claire Crosbie scored the winner.
