Two goals at each end of the match were enough for Kinross to see off Kirkcaldy YM in a feisty Domestic Supplies Cup final at Humbug Park on Sunday.
Aaron Gillon struck early on, before Jack Rennie sealed the win in the dying stages of a game fraught with tension on both sides, and played out in what were sometimes torrential conditions.
It was a blistering start from Kinross, as Gillon found space in a crowded penalty area to slot home and give the game its first goal.
Kinross had opportunities early on to add to their lead, but were unable to find another way through.
Rhys Jeffrey had a pop with a right-footed shot that went wide, before again racing through one-on-one with Ryan Blair in the Kirkcaldy goal, but the keeper stood tall and made a fine save.
Ian Mortimer also had a shot blocked, before Blair spilled the ball under pressure from Jeffrey, but the loose ball was stabbed wide as the score remained one nil.
Kirkcaldy always looked to play out from the back, and that philosophy almost landed them in hot water when Matthew Donaldson won the ball back high up the pitch, but after racing clear through on goal he could only put his shot wide of the mark.
Kirkcaldy were gradually finding a foot hole in the game, and a long ball over the defence this time almost released a striker, but Niall Butler was able to rush off his line and clear the danger for Kinross.
Kailen Yassen then found himself in a good position for Kirkcaldy, but despite his quick feet making room for a shot, he could not find time to pull the trigger as the ball was cleared off his toes.
Greig Jarrett then made good progress down the right wing and delivered a tasty looking cross towards Yassen, but again the Kinross defence held strong to preserve their slender lead.
There was a very even feel to the game now, and despite getting his head to a corner Callum Fraser could only head over for Kinross, before Jarrett finished a driving run from midfield with a low shot from distance that was comfortable for Blair.
Jake Dobbie then went close for Kinross, getting a glancing touch on a cross from the left but as the ball flashed across the face of goal, no teammate was able to convert.
The half finished with one more good chance for each side, Gillon headed wide at the far post from a good delivery into the box, before Reece Brown got himself into a good position on the right but was unable to find a cross.
On the stroke of half time Fraser had one last chance from a free kick, but his effort was well over the bar, meaning Gillon's early strike remained the difference at the interval.
