Penzance lifted a third trophy of the season, with a 4-2 win over a battling St.Agnes side, in front of a very vocal crowd at Hayle FC.
After adding the Cornwall League Shoe Boy Division One Cup last week to their runners-up trophy, Penzance eventually saw off St.Agnes to lift the St.Austell Trophies League Cup.
Having recently struggled to defeat the Saints, the Magpies got off to the best possible start, storming into a 2-0 lead after seven minutes. Both came via Nicki Ellis free kicks, the first on five minutes saw Sorcha Dean eventually score, after a scramble in which she, Candice Britten and Alix Lavertu all had shots charged down. Two minutes later, Britten chased a ball over the top and under pressure fired a fine strike into the roof of the net.
Britten had an effort cleared off the line and an outrageous backheel parried away, while Ellis had a goal ruled out for offside and also headed against the post.
After 30 minutes, Dawn Bateman hooked in a third from a Katy Whittaker corner but three minutes later, a fine shot on the turn from St.Agnes forward Tracie Burley, nestled in the corner of the net.
Burley went close either side of the interval but the fightback was really on as Grace Rudlin conceded a 55th minute penalty and Burley tucked it away confidently. It then took the sharpest of tip-overs from Rudlin to deny Burley a hat-trick.
Kat Redd went close with a header for the Magpies, and when Britten - who had suffered a couple of hefty knocks - lifted the ball over the keeper and bar, custodian Julie Windram came off worse in the collision.
With the Magpies defence having to keep on their toes, the game remained in the balance until two minutes from time. Windram fumbled something of a 'yorker' from Lavertu's free kick and Ellis was quick to force the loose ball home and collect the League Cup.
