The San-Pedro based club finally had a reason to cheer after losing three finals against ASEC – 1999, 2005 and 2014.
Cedric Kodjo opened the scores on 34 minutes before Franck Anoumou doubled the lead on 57 minutes. Three minutes past the hour mark, Yannick Zakri pulled one back for ASEC, but it was the closest they came at turning the tide their favour.
The Ivorian Cup is the first title for Sewe Sport since completing a hat-trick of Ivorian Premier League titles between 2012 and 2014.
The port-city outfit pocketed 10 million CFA Franc (US$16,898) whilst ASEC, the most successful club in the history of the annual competition with 19 titles went home with 7.5 million CFA Franc (US$12,673).
