Hearts vs Partick Thistle: Scottish SWPL 1 – BBC Sport

Fourth-placed Hearts continued their preparations for their first-ever Women’s Scottish Cup final appearance with victory over Partick Thistle – despite a late flurry from the visitors.

A quick brace from Kathleen McGovern put the hosts 2-0 ahead inside 15 minutes, helped by an unfortunate slip from Thistle goalkeeper Ava Eadson at the near post.

As the match entered the final 15 minutes, Katie Lockwood looked to have secured a comfortable victory, attacking a neat Sade Adamolekun ball to seal a third for Hearts.

But Brian Graham’s side fired back in quick succession, first when Cara Henderson drilled in from the penalty spot, before Kodie Hay diverted a stunning effort from the edge of the box into the far corner.

Thistle continued to push forward in the final minutes in the hunt for an equalizer but were unable to break the Hearts defense again as Eva Olid’s side held on for the win.
