Two goals by Stacey Laurenson gave Shetland a 2-0 lead and although East Kilbride pulled one back further strikes from Rhea Nicolson and Laurenson again for her hat trick made sure of victory.

Orkney are also through to the last four of the competition after a 2-0 win over Highland while the other two matches saw a 9-8 victory for Madras FP over Edinburgh University 4s and a 4-2 win for Livingston & West Lothian over Milne Craig Clydesdale Western 4s.

The semi-finals are due to be played at the beginning of March.
