Bay smash ten past Truro on way to championship
TORBAY clinched the Southern Two title with a crushing 10-0 win over Truro B.
Olly Boundy's side scored five times in each half to reach double figures for the first time this season.
All the first-half goals came in a 10-minute blitz.
Truro had held the home side at bay for the first ten minutes. Matt Dixey pounced on a misplaced pass on the edge of the D and took the ball to the byline. His pull back for Jamie Walsh to shoot was deflected past the goalkeeper by Matt Burrows.

Matt Clark notched the second from a short corner, before Walsh made it three with a devastating reverse-stick shot.
Clark also got the fourth from close range, deflecting a pass from Boundy over the keeper.
When Burrows fired in from the edge of the circle to make it 5-0 on the 20-minute mark it looked like Torbay may have gone close to their record win (20-0 v Yeovil).
Truro dug deep and were able to stem the tide until half time.
Torbay scored at regular intervals in the second half, although the tenth only came five minutes before the end.
Burrows completed his hat-trick to make it 6-0. Dixey scored the next two in almost identical fashion. Both came from right-wing crosses.
The seventh was made by Ben Collins and the eighth after a mazy run and cross from Burrows. Torbay's hardy perennial (Clark run and pass for Burrows to score) provided the ninth.
Angus Lee reacted quickest when the goalie saved from Boundy to take the score into double figures. Two years ago Lee had been part of the now defunct 4th XI, led by Barney Tuck, who won their division on the last day of the 2011 season.
The customary champagne spraying took place pitch side after the final whistle!
Torbay have one more match: this Saturday at PGSOB.
Torbay A continued their fine form with a convincing 3-0 win over Bridgwater.
Kai Horsburgh has been able to call on a solid nucleus of players in recent weeks and they have developed a strong team ethic.
With an eye to the future it was fitting that it was the two youngest members of the side who scored the goals.
Jack Knight scored the only goal of the first half. Chris Walker made it 2-0 soon after the break and Knight got his second near the end.
ASHMOOR Men's 1st XI consolidated their top-four position in Conference Two with a hard-earned 2-1 victory at Bodmin.
Bodmin took the lead with a goal on the rebound after the first shot hit Ashmoor keeper Liam Bojar on the pads.
Ashmoor went closest in the first half from set pieces by Jake Crosby, but both shots were well saved by Bodmin's keeper.
Eventually, Dan Johnston won a short corner and Crosby put some power behind his drag flick and the Bodmin keeper couldn't get to hit.
Ashmoor didn't let up, and from a break out from their own defence Crosby found Jamie Bishop who checked inside one defender before placing his reverse-stick effort just inside the post.
