TIVIDALE kept themselves on course for a league and cup double this season by booking a place in the final of the JW Hunt Cup.
The team from The Beeches, who have already secured Midland Alliance glory this campaign, beat West Midland Regional League outfit Black Country Rangers in the semi-final last Wednesday.
Tivi beat their former tenants 2-0 at Wolverhampton's Castlecroft Stadium thanks to goals in each half from Karl Edwards and Zac Foster.
It was the second time these teams had met this season, the last time was in the FA Vase at The Beeches when Tividale ran out 5-1 winners.
In an even first half, Tividale had the majority of the possession but Rangers had the better of the chances. Tivi had a number of early half chances but they never troubled keeper Luke Tilt.
Black Country Rangers, however, could have been 1-0 up after 20 minutes when Tividale keeper Charles Price denied striker Andrew Price with a stunning one-handed save.
Just 14 minutes later Tividale were in front when Karl Edwards turned home a Zac Foster cross.
The second half proved a different affair. Tividale controlled the tempo while Rangers were never as threatening and were left resorting to counter attacks.
Tividale eventually added their second on 65 minutes when Foster latched onto a half clearance and placed the ball through a mass of players and past Tilt.
They will now face Sporting Khalsa in the final at The Molineux on Wednesday, May 21 as they look to bag another piece of silverware.
