East Point is within reach of earning a special place in the Ballarat Football League history after securing a second premiership in as many years at Mars Stadium on Saturday.
The Roos handled slippery conditions with aplomb to crush the flag aspirations of Sebastopol - capturing the grand final by 14 points.
East Point had cleaner ball-handling skills and always look the more likely to open up the game with a dangerous transition game.
Sebastopol was gritty as it battled to keep the Roos in touch, but was unable to dismantle the disciplined defensive structure of East Point, which was allowed to take far too many uncontested marks.
East Point now has a chance to move into rare air as it pursues a third consecutive flag.
Only Sunbury has completed a three-peat in the modern era of the BFL - achieving it in its first seasons in the competition in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
This followed immediately on the heels of North Ballarat, which did the same in 2004, 2005 and 2006.
East Point coach Jake Bridges said this year's success had come out of a hunger spoken about right from the start of the year.
He said it had been about resilience in the face of injuries.
Bridges said every player who played a senior game during the season had contributed to the victory.
Although devastated to fall short, Sebastopol coach Leigh Hutchinson said the unwavering support that the once struggling club now had would serve it well in the future.
His comments reflected a general feeling of positivity about the future for the Burra.
In a game that never really reached great heights given the testing conditions, it was a matter of which side would be able to handle the wet weather the best.
This is exactly was East Point did for the majority of the contest, while Sebastopol, as well kept as it itself in the game until midway into the last term, it was never able to its game going.
There was nothing in the first quarter, with a late Luke Kiel goal ensuring Sebastopol was within one point at quarter time.
With goals hard to come by, it was to be two to the Roos off the boots of brothers Matt and Jordan Johnston - the second bouncing home from outside the 50m arc - that was to make all difference in the final outcome.
East Point led by a dangerous 14 points at the main break and the margin would have been much bigger but for the tireless efforts of Tony Lockyer in defence.
Just one goal apiece in each of the next two quarters told the story.
Sebastopol missed open opportunities in attack, as did East Point and all this did was keep the match in the grip of the Roos.
Down by 15 points at three quarter time, it would have taken something special for Sebastopol to conjure a victory
Just as it did in the third quarter though, East Point set up better behind the ball and there was to be no joy for the Burra army among the biggest BFL grand final crowd in more than two decades.
East Point generated more drive from its midfield, led by Mickitja Rotumah-Onus and Matt Johnston.
Jaocb Brown and Jake McQueen has had major impacts as key forwards on each side struggled in unsuitable conditions. Brown drifted the whole length of the ground to finish with three goals.
Neither ruckman, East Point's Dallas Martin or Toby Thoolen had a significant say in the game.
