After a quiet start to the second half, Mintlaw picked things up again and doubled their advantage on 50 minutes, a through ball from Bailey Simpson found it's way into the feet of Max McCallum who bundled the ball home past Cook to give Mintlaw something to build on, Inverurie needed an immediate response to get back into the contest.
Mintlaw kept going though and could have easily made it 3, a great ball in by Morgan McDonald was met by Evan Dyka whose effort from close range produced a good save from Cook.
Football is a team game and for a cup final, it requires every player to play their part towards victory, on 66 minutes, goalkeeper James Smith played a big part for Mintlaw in their surge for victory after Mitchell Cheyne had a free kick blocked before it came back into the midfielder who saw his effort tipped over by the Mintlaw Rovers keeper.
Sometimes in football you get unlucky and unfortunately for Inverurie, it was turning out to be like that, a great ball came into the box which was met by Cammy McArthur who unleashed a powerful drive towards goal which smacked off the crossbar before the Mintlaw defence cleared.
Inverurie did get a goal back just before the end in what was going to turn out as a consolation, with "Inver" getting a penalty which a lot of the crowd thought was soft so it was a chance for Inverurie to get a lifeline which they took to full advantage with Cammy McArthur slotting his penalty into the bottom left hand corner.
A few of the Mintlaw lads have enjoyed success with their respective ADJFA clubs and they were able to celebrate another success which they can note down on their football CV. This isn't the only success that Mintlaw could get this season as the Under 15 girls have a final in Dingwall this Tuesday.
