GOLDEN Square cemented its place as one of country footy's powerhouse teams in Saturday's Bendigo league grand final.
The Bulldogs' 25.18 (168) to 5.3 (33) mauling of Eaglehawk set a new league record for the greatest winning margin in a grand final and netted the club its third consecutive senior flag.
Power forward Grant Weeks, named No. 1 in the Sunday Herald Sun's top 10 country footballers last month, was one of three Bulldogs to kick four goals in Saturday's decider, with Shaun Young and Luke Rosa the other destroyers.
Eaglehawk trailed by just four points at quarter-time, but an 11-goal-to-nil second term put the result beyond doubt.
Golden Square coach Nick Carter said: "I didn't have to do too much.
"The boys were terrific. We were up by a big margin by halftime, but they didn't ease off.
"Even in the last few minutes they were chasing down and tackling and looking for goals."
Bulldogs Matt O'Toole and Mark Lloyd took home the two best-on-ground medals.
Gippsland league minor premier Traralgon capped a solid season with a 14-point triumph over Drouin.
Scores were locked at 6.8 at halftime, but the Maroons broke away in the second half to claim their first senior flag since 2005.
Traralgon full-forward Dan McKenna booted seven goals and was rewarded with the Stan Aitken Medal as best afield.
Swan Hill ruckman and former Carlton player Callan Beasy was instrumental in his team's 84-point demolition of Kerang in Saturday's Central Murray grand final.
The Swans finished fourth after the home-and-away season, but with Beasy dominating hit-outs and marking everything that came his way, the golden run continued.
The Swans held an eight-goal halftime lead after keeping the Blues goalless in the second term.
Gerrard Kelly booted five goals in Swan Hill's 17.12 (114) to 4.6 (30) win, with Justin Davies and Xavier Moloney each booting four goals.
Five goals from ex-North Melbourne livewire Shannon Motlop wasn't enough to help Robinvale to back-to-back flags in Saturday's Sunraysia league decider, with Irymple triumphing by seven points.
The Swallows led by four goals at quarter-time, with Nick Coghlan finishing with four goals to take the club to its first flag since 2006.
The Horsham Demons beat the Warrack Eagles by 12 points to win their ninth consecutive Wimmera league flag.
