Bendigo wheelchair football player Caleb Logan and the Essendon football club have booked a spot in next week's grand final.
Bombers defeated both Hawthorn and St Kilda during Sunday's preliminary and semi-finals to secure their place against Collingwood in the 2021 Robert Rose Cup Grand Final.
First up was a 17-point win over the Hawks, final scores 87-70.
"We started the first game really well and had a close first quarter," Logan said.
"We then regrouped and discussed what we wanted to change in our game play and then made some changes which helped us break down their defence.
"We were then able to close them out in the end."
With one win secured, all that stood in the Bombers' way were the Saints - a club they'd never defeated.
"This was a pretty heated match with the score going back and forth all game," Logan said.
"I was a bit quiet myself but towards the end I saw more of the ball."
Logan then put his expertise to work in the final minutes with a power-play that helped secure a spot in the grand final.
"I was on the end of a winning tackle towards the end of the game which helped us win the match," Logan said.
"My dad's uncle passed away on Friday morning and I'm sure he was looking down and got me those goals in the last few minutes.
"Quieter games personally, but we got over the line."
The 61-55 win over the Saints - who were also reigning premiers - has given the team a boost of confidence heading into the grand final and the last training session this Thursday.
Logan's plan ahead of the grand final is simple - remain focused on the task at hand.
"We'll train the way we play - hard," he said.
In the past he's been the Bombers' best and fairest, the club's leading goalscorer (31 in 2018 and 30 in 2019) in addition to several other achievements.
