Runton reached the final for the fifth successive year as a result of their emphatic win.

They took the lead after two minutes with an unfortunate own goal but failed to capitalise further in the first half, with Southrepps defending well.

Shortly after the break Runton scored their second goal after catching Southrepps cold. Southrepps continued to impress with their determination but went further behind after 70 minutes and conceded a fourth in the final minutes of the game. Southrepps deserve credit for their performance despite the result.

The match was well refereed by Dave Lewiss and his officials Leon Howard and Terry Chase.

Runton will now face Holt Reserves in the final at Cabbell Park on Monday (6.30pm).
