Winning the under 16 premiership was more of a reward than the sole priority for the Buccaneers, according to assistant coach Eddie Morcombe.
The Buccaneers claimed the flag with a 4-3 victory against Technique in trying weather conditions, which included hail, to cap off a stellar season in which they lost just one of their 15 matches.
Morcombe said he could not have been more proud.
"It is really pleasing watching the development of the players over the whole season," he said.
"And then obviously having it culminate in a win today it just makes all of the hard work over the season worthwhile, and it is a good outcome for everyone. They all played really well.”
The Buccanners, who started the match as the favourite, only secured the one-goal win in the last few minutes of the match.
Morcombe said he was always confident his players could get the job done, but admitted he did not think it would ever have been a one-sided affair.
"We have been fairly dominate throughout most of the season," he said.
"And a couple of weeks ago we played the same team and the scoreline was 6-7 I think, so I think we knew if we played out best hockey we would be able to come out on top.
"But you are always going to have a hard fight in a grand final and they have some great players as well so it was never going to be an easy win."
