Cranbourne Football Club’s seniors may not have gone back-to-back in 2017, but the Eagles brought home two pieces of silverware to ease the pain in Sunday’s Vic Metro Superules grand finals.
With the Eagles going down to a brilliant Narre Warren line-up by 48-points the previous day in the SEFNL preliminary final, the pressure was on the old fellas to finish the season off on a high.
Cranbourne’s Southern Supers met Mordialloc at Casey Fields on Sunday, looking to claim the flag with a rare, undefeated season after getting through the home-and-away season and first final flawless.
Conversion was the key early for the Bloods, with the Eagles making the most of their chances in front of goal, and despite having equal the amount of scoring shots, was able to surge to a 10-point lead that couldn’t be surpassed.
With star forward Shannon Deszcz (four goals) winding back the clock, the Eagles toyed with the Bloods, extending the margin at every change to claim an in the end cruisy victory, 12.15(87) to 3.8(26).
The last quarter was particularly stellar – with a 35-point lead heading into the final change, the Eagles made sure there were no late scares, keeping the opposition scoreless while piling on an impressive but wayward 3.8
Apart from Deszcz, Adrian McIntyre was best afield, while a pair of goals to Adam Biszko and John Frenken helped spur the Eagles to a monumental victory.
Earlier on in the day, the Eagles also claimed the premiership in the Southern Reserves, outlasting the Dingley Dingoes by 32-points on a frosty morning, 9.13(67) to 5.5(35).
Off the back of a five-goal masterclass from Brad McDonald and also a two-goal haul to Les Wooderson, the Eagles were never troubled by the Dingoes.
Similar to the Southern Supers, the Eagles managed to achieve an undefeated season.
