Aidan Lorente’s late volley clinched the John Clark Motors Cup for Monifieth as they edged out Pitfour in the tightest of cup finals.
Paddy Boyle had given Monifieth a first half lead before Ben Clos levelled proceedings early in the second half before Lorente met Aaron Dewar’s free kick three minutes from time.
Pitfour’s Ross Cameron saw an early effort blocked as his side looked to make up for their 2-0 league defeat to Monifieth seven days earlier.
After a back and forth opening to the game, it was Monifieth that broke the deadlock after 15 minutes through Paddy Boyle. The midfielder turned in the box before drilling a low strike past Archie Kelly-Barton from just inside the box.
Jordan Turnbull was denied by Thomas Welsh as Pitfour went in search of an equaliser, before the referee awarded Monifieth an indirect free kick eight yards from goal, much to the bewilderment of the Pitfour players. Arran Ferry teed up Ruari McQuillan, who saw his effort deflected behind for a corner.
McQuillan went close to doubling Monifieth’s advantage when he pounced on a poor header from Charlie Edward, but saw his header drop wide of the post.
