MAN-of-the-match Clinton Place made it four medals from two grand final appearances on Saturday after helping Pomborneit secure back-to-back South West Cricket division one premierships.
The Bulls rolled through Camperdown's batting order on their way to a 94-run win at the Lakes Recreation Reserve with Clinton Place (4-18) and dominant import Lahiru Fernando (4-27) doing the damage with the ball to ensure paceman Brad Hillman had a 250th game to remember.
The Lakers lost their last four wickets for six runs.
Clinton - the brother of captain Grant - said it was pleasing to stand up in another grand final after taking five wickets against Mortlake 12 months ago.
"It is just nice to get a win for the team and get early wickets," he said.
"They've got a pretty good strong top-four and to get early wickets was the key to winning."
The Geelong-based Clinton, a father to five-month-old William, said the victory was reward for a hard-working club.
"With three teams there's a lot of enjoyment around at the club at the moment with lots of people around," he said.
"I know there's a couple of blokes in our team that hadn't won premiership and I know one of my good mates Steve (Murphy), he's travelling back from Ballarat and is a lifelong Pomborneit man and had played in eight grand finals and hadn't won one.
"To get him a win was a really good thing."
Grant agreed with his brother, saying "he was one of the great blokes around the club".
"He'd be up there with the most-loved player at our club, he does a lot of work off the field," the skipper said.
"He lives in Ballarat but fundraising for the club he is all over and it will be well enjoyed with him tonight I'd say."
Steve, whose older brother Dave was in the side and is club president, said he'd "lost count of how many runners-up in the Pombo seniors" he'd collected.
"I wasn't sure if I was ever going to get one because I stopped playing a couple of years ago," he said.
"I came back this year and was given a good opportunity to play. I am extremely grateful and it feels so good to finally win one.
"It is a great club and it is great to be able to call myself a premiership player for Pombo."
Steve, 34, said the Bulls had built " a special group" and that he was excited for the 10-year premiership reunions.
The Ballarat-based father-of-two said it was a difficult year for all sides due to interruptions in play, making the flag even sweeter.
"It was really hard to get going. I don't think anyone could ever say they were ever in form because I am not sure anyone played three games in a row," he said.
"It was going to be one of those seasons if you made the finals, you were a chance."
Steve said he was proud of how his brother Dave had helped strengthen Pomborneit overall.
"He's done well because he's built it up to three senior teams, we've got junior teams - under 16s and under 13s - and we've got a girls' cricket team for the first time in the club's history," he said.
"On the field we're winning flags which is great and off the field we're going strong because we've got lots of young people around the club and it's just a happy place to be around."
Jack Darcy, who played with his two brothers Tom and Sam, also featured in his first top-grade flag for the Bulls.
Pomborneit batted first and posted 182.
Opener Dave Murphy (41) and Grant Place (39) were the main contributors with the bat while Tim Place chipped in with a handy 25 down the order.
Camperdown's Simon Richardson took 4-30 including the important wicket of Fernando for four.
League best and fairest Kusan Niranjana was effective with 3-18.
Camperdown lost early wickets with Clinton Place tearing through the Lakers' top order.
Import Shaluka Silva showed some resistance in the middle order, top-scoring with 27, before the tail was sent packing quickly.
Grant said defending last season's premiership was "a relief".
"To put on a performance today we did with the bat and then the ball was really pleasing," the captain said.
Grant said he was pleased for his brother and his man-of-the-match performance but admitted cheekily "we won't hear the end of it, he can be a bit full of himself at times".
"The big games he tends to bowl well," he said.
"I knew they were going to come out hard like they did and I was always confident he was going to be bowling enough good balls to take wickets or create opportunities."
Pomborneit is hopeful Fernando and fellow Sri Lankan Tharaka Sendanayake will return to Australia for a third season.
"It feels like they've been here a lot longer than two years, they couldn't have fit in better with the club," Grant said.
"Everyone loves them and I am sure they love coming back."
