Linfield took the lead against Cliftonville with just three minutes on the clock.
Mairead McCann set up Nicole Graham to volley past Tiarna McKenna in the Cliftonville goal.
McKenna had a busy night between the posts but failed to stop Kirsty McGuinness slotting home the Blues second, with the final score 2-0 to Linfield.
Manager Ryan McConville said he had expected the encounter with Cliftonville to be tough.
"It was a very strong a very physical Cliftonville side and we knew it was going to be difficult.
"Playing them a couple of weeks ago in the league, we only came through that 3-2 and tonight was the exact same, but our defence was superb."
Linfield will play now play their "Big Two" rivals Glentoran in the decider.
The Glens thrashed Ballymena United 6-0 in the other semi-final
Kelly Bailey and Lauren Wade both scored hat-tricks in the game.
Bailey told UTV: "Linfield again will be another big clash, obviously Linfield-Glentoran, anytime we play them it's obviously a tight enough game, so again we'll just see what comes up."
