Wolverhampton Wanderers completed the League and Cup 'double' with a 2-0 victory over Stoke City in the Midland Combination League Cup Final at Stafford.
After Dani Selmes had hit the post for Wolves early on, both sides had opportunites before Wolves took the lead shortly before half time.
Jen Anslow swung in a corner which deceived Stoke goalkeeper Alice Langstone under pressure and found the net to send Wolves into the break with a one-goal lead.
The second half was a tight affair as both sides tried to cope with some appalling weather conditions which included a hailstorm, torrential rain, thunder and lightning.
Becky Hall shot wide after being released by a pass from Leanne Rimmer but chances were few at either end with both defences staying strong.
Stoke were forced to throw players forward to try and save the game but were dealt a killer blow as the game entered injury time.
Becky Hall produced a smart piece of skill to get away from three opponents before crossing to Selmes, whose deflected shot found the corner of the net to put her side two ahead.
Not even the wild weather could dampen the spirits at full time as Wolves captain Natalie Hall lifted the cup to round off a successful season in style whilst Stoke, despite a fine campaign, had to settle for the runners-up position in both competitions.
