The Windsor girls started brightly showing no signs of sleepiness and forced some good saves from Glasgow keeper

As Glasgow Girls started to come into the game Rachel Smith cut out a move and played a great long ball through the Glasgow defence Erin Archibald latched onto it and smashed the ball past the Glasgow keeper before she could move. Windsor with their tails up pushed for another goal and it came courtesy of Melissa Kane; a low grass cutter looked as if it was going straight into the goalie's hands when it bounced passed her into the net 2-0.

Windsor as half time approached Windsor took full control of the game and erin Archibald made it 3-0 when she ran on to a long ball from Iona Sommerville and struck a low shot passed Glasgow keeper.

Glasgow started to play some great football and a through ball had the Windsor defence under pressure and keeper Samantha Windram rushed out her goal but misjudged the box and picked up the ball. From the resulting free kick Glasgow Girls fired in a shot passed the keeper 3-1

Half time: Glasgow Girls FC 1-3 Musselburgh Windsor Girls Whites

Glasgow started the second half brighter and came close to pulling a goal back when clean through Samantha Windram made herself big in front of the attacker and pulled of a great save with her feet. From the corner Glasgow strike volleyed past the keeper into the net 3-2.

Windsor were rattled and the game started to swing in Glasgow's favour; a long ball over the Glasgow defence was chased by Leah Tweed who did brilliantly to keep in in and fired it low across the box and it cannoned in off the defenders legs restoring Windsor's 2 goal advantage.

Windsor settled the game down and looked for the goal which would surely close out the tie Erin Mackenzie rattled a fierce volley in that looked as if it was flying into the top corner before out of nowhere the keeper flew across her line and tipped it over the bar.

Iona Sommerville ran up for the short corner and steadied herself and fired a shot into the net from just outside the box 5-2.

In the last minute Glasgow Girls got a goal but it was the last action of the game as the ref blew for full time sending Windsor into the next round.

Full time: Glasgow Girls FC 3-5 Musselburgh Windsor Girls Whites
