Shefford Warriors were successful in week one of the Bedford and District Netball League's cup finals to complete the double.
The Third Division final was between Warriors (shown above), the league champs, and Cranfield Jets who had finished sixth in the league.
Both teams started at full speed and with excellent defence on both sides, it was a few minutes before Cranfield Jets took the lead.
Neither team really had the upper hand but Shefford Warriors were stronger at the end to win the first quarter by four goals to three.
