Callington Town lifted the Cornwall Cup for the first time at Launceston FC with a deserved 3-0 victory over near neighbours Dobwalls.
Callington showed their intent early on when the pacey Kat Marment fired a shot against the crossbar which was followed by Dobwalls goalkeeper Fay Hankinson denying Kate Bourn. Dobwalls then had a good chance to score when Jade Hankinson clipped the outside of a post from close range.
Within minutes of coming on as a substitute, the experienced Gemma Farley fired into the far corner of the net to give her side a 34th minute lead. Dobwalls came back with a free kick that whistled narrowly wide.
Callington started the second half at a fast pace and after Marment shot wide in the 47th minute, the same player knocked the ball in from close range after a fierce Farley shot was blocked and rebounded to her.
Dobwalls were finding it difficult to set up any meaningful attacks and George Reed then fired narrowly over with Bourn having another shot well saved. The killer goal soon came when Jodie Shipton picked up the ball and from 25 yards turned and fired the ball into the roof of the net off the underside of the crossbar.
Dobwalls' last chance of getting something out of the game came when their captain Jenna Borlase saw her penalty kick awarded for handball saved by Callington goalkeeper Sara Rowe.
This ended a remarkable season for Callington manager Adam McPherson and for Dobwalls manager Paul Borlase who, on taking over the reins, scored their highest league points and highest position up the women's football pyramid. The trophy was presented to Callington captain Marie Wilson by County president Brian Conyon MBE.
