Sebastopol Vikings finished its season in strong fashion, despite not getting promoted from FFV state league three.
Vikings needed results to go their way if they were to be a chance of climbing into second spot and by the time kick-off came around, they knew promotion was not possible.
But nonetheless, Sebastopol delivered a professional and dominant performance against fellow top five side Sunbury United.
Vikings won 4-1, finishing fourth on the table, and coach Corey Smith was proud of his group.
“Both teams were in a similar situation and I think today showed just how professional and how strong the mentality of our group is to bounce back from a really disappointing result last week,” Smith said.
“Devastating not to go up after the season we’ve had, but at the same time, it’s been an incredible season.
“It’s still about being professional and being able to continue to want to improve and want to play the best football you can, that can be hard to do at this stage of the season, but we did today.
“Sunbury are a good side, they’re challenging with the same teams as us, and today we took them apart.”
Kuanyjal Tuany scored early in the match before Will Georgiou made it 2-0 after 20 minutes, Liam Dawson scored from distance with the help of a deflection to take a 3-0 lead into half-time. Tuany scored another before Sunbury scored late in the game.
A quality send-off for the retiring Paul McClounan.
