The Tornadoes, in white scoring three minutes in, Bay on the board when Hunter Hall scores on the header off the corner kick.

Arnold working it to respond, but a series of shots just missing the mark, among them this free kick of Austin Peffers that just hits the crossbar and goes over.

Bay's keeper Zach Watson also doing a good job of denying other shots, like this one that starts on the corner kick, gets pushed back out and comes back on the kick by Carson Thomas Walters.

Bay gets another goal late in the half, then another early in the second to win it 4-0. Again that final against Mosley Friday night at Gavlak.
