It's a case of three seasons, two Sally McLean Medals for North Ballarat captain Stacey Matthews, who was named the BFNL A Grade best-and-fairest after a standout campaign that saw her lead her side to an undefeated minor premiership.
Matthews shared the lead with Lake Wendouree's Kate Drew heading into the final round, before the Roosters champion edged in front with a best-on-court showing in her side's seven-goal win against Darley.
Drew finished third in the court, with Melton South goalie Akira McCormack pipping her to second with a three-vote showing against Sebastopol on the final day.
Matthews was a force in the middle of the court for the Roosters this, not missing a game as her side asserted its dominance over the competition.
She brought experience and calmness to a young, talented outfit and her vision and passing game was a big reason why North Ballarat had the best attacking record in the competition.
Matthews is no stranger to the A Grade spotlight, having won the Sally McLean Medal in 2018 and premierships in 2015, 2018 and 2019.
It's also the third season in a row that a North Ballarat player has taken home the McLean Medal after Matthews' triumph in 2018 and Madison Selmon's win in 2019.
