Basingstoke Bison claimed their first major trophy for 14 years defeating Milton Keynes Lightning to win the English Premier League Cup.
Bison lost the second leg 4-3 in front of 1,300 supporters but earned a 7-5 aggregate victory.
Bison, who play in the second tier of English ice hockey, are celebrating their 25th anniversary season.
"Our fans have been tremendous and waited a long time for tonight", coach Doug Sheppard told BBC South Today.
It seemed destined to be a nervous night for Bison, who won the first leg 4-1, but when Aaron Connolly put them in front within 20 seconds making the aggregate score 5-1, it seemed like it would be a victory parade.
But Milton Keynes fought back. As the night went on the Bison's aggregate lead fell away and midway through the third period MK took a 4-2 lead on the night, it was suddenly 6-5 on aggregate.
It took Andy Melachrino to settle those nerves, scoring the goal which restored a two-goal aggregate lead and the celebrations began.
