The more experienced Alphington team retained the Westward Developments Devon Women's League Cup as they proved just a little too strong for a valiant AFC Plympton.
Both sides played their part in an entertaining game at Buckland Athletic FC's Homers Heath, which was in surprisingly good condition for the end of a long season.
Having beaten the Alphas in a League match a couple of weeks ago an upset looked on the cards until a speculative cross come shot midway through the first half from the impressive Laura Burford gave Alphington the lead.
Both teams had their share of territory but there were no more goals before half time.
In the second half, the quality of Karen Buck, Laura Burwood and Becky Folds through middle of the Alphington team proved decisive as AFC Plympton's key players, Sam Metters and Danii Moody were kept in check.
The second goal was the result of the best move of the game. Karen Buck drove forward with the ball and delivered a perfectly weighted ball for Becky Folds to run on to and slot the ball past Taylor Matthews. This goal signalled a change in formation for both sides as Plympton applied pressure to get back into the game, as Alphington defended in numbers to protect their lead.
Plympton had a 'goal' ruled out for off side and Taylor Matthews for Plympton and Ashleigh Brown both made good saves as the game finished with a 2-0 win for Alphington.
