A great first term from Mornington set up the day as they shot to a 32 point lead in the first term. The play by the tri colours in the first half was worth going a long way to see as they produced one of the best brands of football seen on the Peninsula. However not to outdone the seagulls came back hard in the third after a confrontation between Caspar and N Brown got plenty of attention, this started a run on goal as the gap was bridged and by three quater time the lead was cut to 14 points. Mornington were able to repulse the attacks of Sorrento in the last as Hart the champion forward scored a relieving goal late to give the Premiership to Mornington in an epic battle despite some jittery moments.
