HEPBURN supporters ignited with excitement and stormed the field in a sea of red and blue when the siren sounded on the club's premiership victory.
A 6000 strong crowd converged on Eureka Stadium for today's Central Highlands Football Netball League grand final celebrations which culminated with the Burras' nine point triumph over the Buninyong Bombers.
Burras coach Clive Raak said the win meant a lot to the club and was a "fantastic" result for the side's hard work.
It also meant a lot to one of Hepburn's biggest supporters Marie Sullivan who, at 83, has been getting behind the Burras for 60 years.
Ms Sullivan said she hadn't missed a match all season and was "wrapped" to see the side in today's grand final, having seen most of the players grow up and come through the ranks as juniors.
Off the field, a 24-year-old Bacchus Marsh man was hospitalised after he was knocked unconscious by an alleged assault.
Acting senior sergeant Pete Carey said a 20-year-old Ballarat man was arrested and conveyed to the station for questioning.
Another 24-year-old Sebastopol man was arrested for drunk.
Acting Senior Sergeant Carey said eight police members attended the event and reported an otherwise a well-behaved crowd.
Highway Patrol members also conducted breath testing at the end of the day and there were no positive readings, he said.
Buninyong was represented by a large and vocal group of passionate supporters, including former president Mark Clementson.
Mr Clementson said it had been a good year for the club, with excitement growing in Buninyong in the lead up to the grand final.
"When Buninyong gets a goal, you'll hear the crowd," he said.
It was a good day for Springbank, which won the seniors netball premiership by one point.
The club also had the honour of having the most netball teams play in grand finals.
Cheering from the sidelines was Kath O'Neil, who said she had been following Springbank since its formation in 1962.
Dishing out food to the hungry hoards, Ballan Football Netball Club committee member Sharon Mullane said hot chips and hamburgers were in top demand.
She said since lunch they had sold 100 hamburgers, 50 15kg boxes of hot chips, 300 egg and bacon rolls, 250 chicken schnitzels and 30 dozen pies.
