BALLARAT Clarendon College has won its fifth elite country school football title in a row.The Ballarat school yesterday overcame Wanganui Park Secondary College, and driving rain, to record its fifth straight Herald Sun Country Shield, at Strathfieldsaye near Bendigo.In wet, slippery conditions that narrowed any advantage in skill and height, College proved it also had the hunger to win, grinding out a hard-fought but ultimately emphatic 11.10 (76) to 4.7 (31) victory. "In conditions like that, it is not so much about skill. It's about attitude. The attitude of the players has been very good throughout," College coach Shaune Moloney said."The boys came into the match with a great level of intensity, and in those conditions that's what you need."Ballarat Clarendon College's victory delivers the city its second major school football title of the year after cross-town rival St Patrick's College won the Herald Sun Shield last month.Bill Barry was awarded the Danny Frawley Medal as the best player in the grand final, with ruck Ben Mabon and Wil Pomorin among a host of good players for the victors.Pomorin scored three goals, including two in the first six minutes, although College captain Lucas Cook (one goal) was possibly the most influential forward on the ground.Wanganui Park coach Graeme Crosbie conceded his team took too long to adapt to the conditions."We gave them too much of a head start," Crosbie said."Ballarat was too good on the day but this (competition) is two levels higher than we have ever achieved before, so the school is very proud of the boys' achievements."
