Report by Jacob Powley

After the comfortable win against Cape Cornwall , Mounts Bay went into the final match , against rivals Humphry Davy  and despite the joking between opposition friends before the match,  everyone had their minds thoroughly focused on the task.
Despite being on form, Mounts Bay began on the back foot, with a free kick beating Shea Cornish in the goal but being denied by the crossbar .
Just after being denied so agonisingly, it was Humphry Davy who scored first , a slightly fluky cross somehow finding its way into the top corner .
Captain Jacob Trudgeon then saw his shot cannon off the post after a great run past the last defender but then Conner George crossed for Max Armstrong to hammer home , 1-1.
Unfortunately though for the home side, an own goal put them 2-1 down!
It would have been 3-1 if Luke Flack hadn’t made a superb clearance to halt an opposition attack and then fortune changed emphatically, with Sam Lewis hitting a scorcher past the  helpless  Humphry Davy goalkeeper to level the game just before halftime.
In the second half, Mounts Bay answered what must have been an inspiring team talk by adopting an all out attack approach and this eventually paid off with a goal from Jacob Trudgeon to put Mounts Bay in front for the first time in the game .
Now in control , the hosts began to pepper the goal with shots; Reece Evans and Thomas Quick both going close, and then a mistake from the keeper allowed a Finley Wallis shot pass through into the net.
There was now no way back for Humphry Davy and after a few late substitutions, the final whistle blew and Mounts Bay finished the league season unbeaten . The team was ;
