Plymouth Argyle retained the Devon County Cup on Thursday night with a 2-0 victory over a determined Cullompton Rangers side.
In an even first half, neither side could establish superiority and chances were few and far between with defences generally in control. A couple of opportunities were created by Plymouth but the scoreline was goalless going into half time.
After the restart it was Cullompton who looked the more promising as Argyle struggled to get going. However three second half substitutions gave Plymouth fresh impetus and they began to inflict pressure for the first time.
The deadlock was broken with fifteen minutes remaining via a spectacular strike. Chloe Bassett cut in from the right and unleashed a swerving, dipping drive from the angle of the area and into the far corner of the net to give Plymouth the lead.
Argyle were finally able to sew up the game as Kate Hine raced down the left and beat the onrushing goalkeeper, before sliding the ball across the unguarded goalmouth and Becky McMullin was able to slot home from an acute angle.
Plymouth therefore secured the first trophy of a possible 'double', in what is a crucial month in their season. On Sunday they take on Yeovil Town in an important clash in the South West Combination before what will probably be a title showdown against leaders Queen's Park Rangers.
