Brentwood had chances of their own after the restart, but Cowley continued to have most of the play and eventually doubled their advantage with a well-taken goal from Kyle Cargill inside the final 15 minutes.

Cowley Community will go on to play the final at Bowers & Pitsea's Len Salmon Stadium and manager Robert Cooper said: "It was an all-round performance and I'm proud of my players and looking forward to the remaining fixtures in the league and cups."
