Wholesale changes were made at half time, and super sub Fox scored with his first touch drilling the ball past the keeper. Harry made it 11 shortly after, before Hyner scored following some great individual play. In the closing minutes both forwards both scored to add further insult to injury, with Harry grabbing his double hat trick and Hyner capping a routine victory off with his hat trick. 0-15 full time. It was an emphatic performance from FCB who finished off the season unbeaten, in the process picking up 15 wins and 2 draws from a possible 17 games.
FCB finished the first half of the season as second highest scorers, bagging 79 goals, averaging over 4.5 goals a game.
