With the Reserve Cup already in the bag, Kcinsatop Reserves travelled to Arlesey Town to take on Baldock Engine in the Division One Cup final.
Both sides had been in fine form and this game really proved too close to call - in the end Baldock Engine lifted the trophy by winning the game 3-2.
Earlier in the week, Offley Parish met Shillington in the Division Two Cup final.
The game was delicately poised after both teams scored early goals.
But after a period of Offley pressure, Shillington edged in front, a lead they never surrendered.
PJ Hitchin will play Baldock Engine in the league's flagship cup final, the Challenge Cup, after an impressive 4-2 win against Kcinsatop. Adrian Turner, John Woodbine, Ricky Small and Craig Skelton scored for PJ.
