Colbinabbin are the new queens of the Heathcote District Netball Association's A-grade competition after they dismantled White Hills in Saturday's grand final at Elmore.
The Grasshoppers came from fifth on the ladder to win the flag and triumphed 44-28 in what was a one-sided grand final after quarter time.
White Hills started favourites after finishing second on the ladder, but it was Colbinabbin that swept to their first premiership since 2009.
In doing so the 'Hoppers eased some of the pain from last year's heart-breaking one-goal grand final defeat to Mount Pleasant.
"It's a huge relief," Colbinabbin coach Cathy Rathjen said. "We knew at the start of the season that we had the potential but we we've been just not doing it on the court.
"So to actually come from fifth, not anybody would have given us a chance so it's very sweet for that reason alone."
Colbinabbin has looked a different team during finals to the side that won eight home-and-away games with seven losses and a draw.
The Grasshoppers ruthlessly dispatched North Bendigo, Mount Pleasant, Lockington-Bamawm United and White Hills in cut-throat finals.
Asked what changed from the start of the season to the end, Rathjen said: "The team just accepted each other more and started playing as a team and they just cut down on errors, that was all that was costing us all year."
Those qualities showed in the grand final as Colbinabbin took control after quarter time.
A tense opening term saw the Grasshoppers lead 7-5 at the break, before a stunning 14-8 second quarter broke the game open.
Colbinabbin's mid-court, led by star and captain Olivia McEvoy, drove the Grasshoppers forward and goalers Louise Dupuy and Felicity Ryan capitalised.
White Hills goalers Jessica Sawyer and Michelle Atherton could barely get a look in.
Wing-defence Gabby Barlow, named best-on-court, conspired with defenders Holly Guerra and Rachel Bull to prevent the Hills from ever getting momentum.
Atherton, the Hills co-coach, tried to lift her team but it was to no avail.
Colbinabbin slammed the door shut with a 14-5 third term to extend the margin to an unassailable 17 goals at the last change.
The final term was a formality and Colbinabbin's biggest worry proved to be opening the champagne bottle to celebrate.
Dupuy finished with 28 goals for Colbinabbin while Ryan notched 16.
Atherton scored 17 for the Hills and shooter Sawyer ended the match with 11.
In other matches on Saturday, Mount Pleasant took out the A-reserve grand final with a hard-fought 47-41 triumph over LBU.
Mounts led at every change, but could never pull far enough away to feel sure of victory until late in the match.
Mounts goal-shooter Megan Baird was named best contributor.
Huntly swept the B-grade and B-reserve grades.
The Hawks toppled LBU 43-26 in B-grade, with Huntly goal-attack Hannah Rae named best on court.
The Hawks earlier defeated Mounts 43-35 in B-reserve after coming from 30-29 down at three-quarter time.
Kelsey Johnston was awarded the best contributor medal playing in goal-defence for the Hawks.
Heathcote soured LBU's day further by clinching the under-17s grand final 34-21, with the Saints' goal-defence Zoe Davies named best player.
The Cats got a win in the under-15s, though, with a 24-20 result against Leitchville-Gunbower. LBU goal-defence Georgina Schroen was best contributor.
