Garioch took a big stride towards winning Caley 2 North without kicking a ball in anger.
Nearest rivals Ellon were beaten at home by Mackie FPs, while their own game with Shetland at Kellands Park was called off by the islanders on Friday.
The shock defeat by the Stonehaven side leaves Ellon’s promotion prospects hanging by a thread, with Garioch in pole position with four games remaining.
Not that Inverurie coach Dave Duguid is taking anything for granted and said: “We have still to go to Invergordon where Ross Sutherland will still be on a high after their great win in the National Bowl on Saturday at Murrayfield. But I admit we are in a good position.”
Sam Mountain, the Ellon head coach, was disappointed by his side’s 15-5 loss at home to Mackie.
He said: “We made too many individual mistakes to deserve to win.
“We’ll keep plugging away, though we’ll need some help from someone else if we are to come out on top.
“It’s generally been a good season, if a little frustrating.”
North Police Scotland closed in on the Caley 3 North title after beating nearest challengers Kinloss Eagles 22-14 at Duff House, a neutral venue.
The boys in blue are now seven points ahead with three games remaining.
At Murrayfield, there was no National Bowl glory for Garioch Ladies who crashed in the final of the competition to Oban Lorne, losing 45-5.
Garioch captain Jess Silcocks said: “We gave it our best shot but it just wasn’t our day. We’ll be back.”
