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.
The second quarter went goal for goal with both teams playing well and it took a superb interception by Hollie Smith from Shefford Warriors to give them the chance of a turnover.
This was just what they needed to take the upper hand and as the half-time whistle went, they were winners by nine goals to six.

The third quarter saw both teams make a few errors and the score went to six goals apiece.
Jets had the centre pass with seconds to go but Warriors made the all important interception and the decisive goal went through the net as the whistle went.
Cranfield had given it their all in the first three quarters and had nothing left at the end so Shefford ran out winners by 11 goals to two in the final quarter.
Another final on the night saw the new Challenge Cup final played between the winners of the Youth League, Grangers Hurricanes, and the winners of the Youth League Cup, Cranfield Swallows. Grangers became the deserved first recipients of the Challenge Cup.
