The Premiers and Development team have finished their season.
This was to be the last time Oratia seriously threatened the Bays goal as the visitors took complete control of the game. The rain made the ground very wet which in turn made passing difficult and it took 17 minutes to breach the Oratia defence when Dan Peat headed home from a corner.
Five minutes later, Dan Morgan-Howell was put through and made it 2-0 slotting wide of the keeper and Peat got his second three minutes later when he beat the defence and picked his spot.
Jason McKeown and Ryan Zoghby both put chances wide before Peat claimed his hat trick with a low drive into the corner of the net in the 35th minute.
It became 5-0 with three first half minutes remaining, when a Joe Bresnahan drive was diverted by an Oratia player into his own net and one minute later Peat headed in his fourth of the match to give Bays a 6-0 lead at the break.
With such a commanding lead, the second half became a bit of an anti-climax. Ryley Webster had his shot saved early into the second half and continuous pressure saw Oratia concede a penalty for hand ball in the box which Morgan-Howell duly converted.
Goal number eight arrived in the 63rd minute, courtesy of Peat who sent a long ball through he defence that found Morgan-Howell who out jumped the keeper and headed into an empty net.
The last half hour should have seen more goals but some wayward shooting and desperate defending thwarted Bays.
Phil Edginton would have felt specially aggrieved, He his the upright, the crossbar, the keeper, everything except the back of the net.
Tom Davis made an impressive first team debut and was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet in the dying moments.
