Loughborough Students won the Midland Combination League Cup with a 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Final at Bedworth.
here were few chances at either end during the opening stages and, after a good spell from Wolves, Loughborough began to grow stronger as the half wore on. They won a series of corners but the Wolves defence stood firm and the scoreline was goalless heading into half time.
Things remained just as tight at the start of the second half but Loughborough opened the scoring ten minutes after the restart when a shot from Emma Pilling deflected off Wolves captain Anna Perks and looped over a helpless Natalie Hall in the Wolves goal.
Wolves were to never fully recover from the setback although they did come close to levelling the scores from a corner when Dani Selmes was inches wide with her effort after Layla Salter's initial shot had been blocked.
Wolves tried to push forward for an equaliser but Loughborough grabbed a clinching second goal with ten minutes left as Abi Cockayne headed home from close range following a corner.
* Loughborough completed a great day for their club as the reserves defeated Leicester City 2-0 in the Reserves League Cup Final, thanks to goals from Becca Kemp and Alice Kempski.
