Half time - Ross County Reserves 2 Aberdeen Reserves 3Forty-five seconds after the restart Aberdeen went 4-2 ahead. A delightful ball forward by Anderson sent McLennan sprinting into the area and he gave the keeper no chance with an eight-yard finish. The perfect start to the second half for the Dons, Connor's strength and clever footwork were a source of constant danger to the home side. County were back into the game on 58 minutes when Wallace headed a left-wing cross into the net, then drew level nine minutes later when Tony Dingwall scored form around the penalty spot with his left foot. McLennan picked up a silly booking on 73 minutes for kicking the ball away just before Lloyd Robertson replaced Dangana in the Dons ranks. A second change on 81 minutes saw Linden replace the impressive McLennan. Wright came on for County to take over from MacIver with five minutes left while Connor Barron replaced Ethan Ross three minutes later. Anderson nearly grabbed a winner in the 89th minute but a fine save from Munro deprived the striker of his hat-trick. Wallace came close for the Staggies with the final attack of an excellent game, so it finished all square after 90 minutes. The rules of the competition dictate that a penalty shoot out takes place after drawn games and County picked up the bonus point with a 4-2 success in the shoot-out after Tansey and Seb Ross missed from the spot. Aberdeen progress to the semi-finals of the Cup where they will be joined in the draw by Hearts, Motherwell and St Johnstone.
