The Tathra Sea Eagles secured a solid win over Narooma on Saturday.
The Tathra Aussie rules club needed the result to hold on to second place from a fast-finishing Pambula Panthers outfit, who carded a strong last-round win over the Eden Whalers.
The Sea Eagles were too much for the Lions, winning 15-11-101 to 5-8-38.
Tathra full forward Adam Blacka made the best use of the ball for the Eagles, nailing seven majors, while the club's freshly announced best and fairest winner Louis Coulton backed up well with three to his name.
Tathra coach Tom Lipsham kept up a great appearance in the middle to make the best on ground count, while Troy O'Loghlin also dominated passages out of the middle.
Much like their game plan going in, the Sea Eagles were able to control the central clearances and minimise options for Narooma's big men with a lot of play heading to Tathra's attacking forwards who capped off with clean kicking on the day.
Shane Gartside also featured as one of the club's best with some great hand-balling and speedy displays.
Following their success, the club held its best and fairest vote count on Sunday at its Lawrence Park club rooms.
Louis Coulton was the seniors winner with a narrow lead from Troy O'Loghlin and Luke Taylor in third place.
In the women's grade Cymmon Parker took out the top honours with Brea Williams runner-up and Tyra-Lee Palmer in third.
The reserve grade best and fairest was presented to Fynn Walsh ahead of Tullen Ford and Ewan Piotrowski.
