Hamilton, fresh from winning their opener, looked to stamp their authority as favourites for the competition with a fast start here.
David Thompson had the first effort on goal to begin a great overall performance on the left wing for Hamilton.
Then he was played in again after Marcus Boyce’s nimble footwork but crowded out by an eager Milngavie defence.
Hamilton’s early play smacked of high quality, no better exemplified than by a lovely double one-two between Louis Robertson and John Rowan on the right flank.
Irrepressible was the only way to describe David Thompson at this stage and his lung-bursting run found him in the box and able to pick out Evan Duffy for what seemed a tap in. Somehow Ryan Gillies reacted to save but was as unfortunate as John Rowan was unaware when the ball nicked off him and into the Milngavie goal.
Milngavie’s defence must’ve had déjà vu when a wonderful Rowan pass allowed Thomson to rampage up the wing once more but this time Scott Hutton was better prepared to make the challenge.
Mitchell Duffy looked to bring Milngavie back into the match with some inspiring shielding play and a timely switch.
But it was Hamilton who had another effort with a fierce but wayward cross cum shot from Declan Scott from an acute angle.
The half ended one nil Hamilton soon after another series of nifty touches and drag-backs by Thomson and a shot over from Scott from just outside the box.

Milngavie resumed the game brightly, thanks to some nice-link up work from Eliot and good forward running from Ben Jenkins.
At the other end, Marcus Boyce, motoring from deep, evaded the attentions of two defenders but was thwarted in the box to stop what would have been a wonder goal.
Yet there was no doubt that Milngavie had become generally more ascendant and Rory McInnes tumbled in the box to a chorus of hopeful shouts for a penalty.
A defensive lapse allowed the influential John Rowan to shoot from the inside right position 15 yards from goal but the ball dragged wide.
The game had suddenly become end to end and Milngavie were certainly right back in it as an attacking force.
After a quiet opening spell in the second period, Hamilton’s two main danger men began to get going and then worked an opportunity for Scott to draw a spectacular two handed save from Gillies.
As the end loomed the football became disjointed and Thomson almost capitalized on a crude punt, shooting into Gillies, with Boyce unable to get on either of the rebounds amid desperate Milngavie defending.
Hamilton saw out the match safely and almost doubled their lead when Thomson had a header well saved at the death. A fitting end as he had been the game’s star performer.
