Hepburn’s under-18 side capped off a stellar year for the club by thrashing Springbank to the tune of 139 points.

Unbeaten all year, the Burras steamrolled the Tigers from go-to-whoa and the trio of Alister Ferrier, Bryce Coffey and Hayden Rodgers were in devastating form.

Top in the season’s goal-kicking list, Ferrier booted nine majors in Saturday’s grand final to put the icing on the cake for 2017.

Best and fairest pair Coffey and Rodgers had a ball blitzing the hapless Springbank side.

It was a big haul for another Hepburn star in Izaac Grant, who amassed six majors.

Before that defeat, the Springbank army was in full voice after claiming its first Central Highlands Football League under-15 premiership.

Hepburn had beaten Springbank during the season by 15 points, but had no answer to the solid, pacy Tigers in the grand final. In the end, the Tigers won by 30 points. Best on ground for the Burras was Sage Eguchi.
