Birmingham City continued their domination of the Birmingham County Cup with a 6-1 win over West Bromwich Albion to take home the silverware for the eighth time.
The first ten minutes of the game kicked off with a high voltage attack by Birmingham City powered on by Becky Hall who let rip a spectacular volley which smashed through the top right hand corner of the goal to bring them 1-0 up.
West Bromwich Albion replied by rallying their team to the opposing goal to try and break through the tough defence of Birmingham City. Amy Rippington was the closest to goal but her run was cut short outside the penalty box.
Albion continued to keep strong and try and halt the electrifying flow of play that Birmingham City were displaying but fifteen minutes to the halfway mark, Becky Hall blasted another shot past her twin sister Natalie - who was in goal for Albion - to send them two goals ahead.
Minutes later Sally Lacey brought the Blues 3-0 up with a lovely header straight through the centre of goal.
As the clock ticked to half time Birmingham City were clearly in control of the game as Chelsea Weston and Sally Lacey scored in the final minutes to bring the score line to 5-0 at the break.
In the second half, it was a whole new game as Albion came out with their heads held high to halt the mighty Blues. They came together and pressed forward to pressure the Blues to open up their tight defences and kept there own defence line as tight as possible.
Natalie Hall made a magnificent save from a spectacular shot from her sister Becky in the opening minutes to showcase West Brom's determination to close the gap.
Maz Gauntlett crept through the defences but her shot hit the post before Albion pulled a well deserved goal back with ten minutes to go with a lovely goal by Natasha Baptiste to bring the score 5-1
However it was Birmingham who had the final say with 6 minutes to go as Becky Hall managed to grab her hat-trick to leave the final score 6-1.
