The boost for the Blues came after they missed out on the league cup, losing out in the final to Glentoran Belfast United.
On Saturday, it fell to Linfield's Ashley Hutton to open the scoring - with the Northern Ireland international claiming her first goal for the side in the process.
And, after taking the one-goal lead into the break, the Blues could have capitalised on chances in the second but failed to convert.
Then Kirsty McGuinness was brought down, only to beat the Crues keeper with her free kick to make it 2-nil.
I think a lot of people always feared your Glentorans and your Crusaders, but I think this year we've come with no fear ...
Linfield's Ashley Hutton, Player of the Match
Crusaders refused to lie down though and a header from Alison Smyth just 10 minutes from time narrowed the gap.
As the Crues' fight-back pressed on, the Linfield defence held firm and the side were rewarded with the win, prompting on-pitch celebrations.
"We knew very early, from about three or four weeks into the season, that we had a special bunch of girls and this emphasises that," Blues manager Ryan McConville said.
Crusaders player Lisa Armour admitted that they were gutted not to walk away with the silverware.
"To be honest, it's unusual for this club not to," she added.
