WOODFORD is plotting a new decade of dominance, confirming its status as the Warrnambool and District Cricket Association's premier one-day outfit.
A Bailey Jenkinson masterclass helped deliver the Eels' second-successive one-day crown on Sunday, downing Russells Creek at Avery's Paddock.
Jenkinson piled on 83 runs to steer Woodford to a 200-run total after they won the toss and elected to bat.
His nine overs, three maidens and figures of none for 16 also played a part in strangling Creek's batsman out of the match.

Woodford skipper Nick Butters said Jenkinson's efforts were "super" in his first division one grand final.
"We were pretty excited with the prospect of getting him towards the end of last season," Butters said.
"We know his ability and what he can do. To fill a role at the top of the order allows me to drop down (to four).
"His off-spin is just... No one has really got him this season. He's really, really economical."
Butters, a multiple premiership captain at Woodford, said the feeling of winning premierships "hadn't lost its shine".
He said the Eels' total of 200 matched pre-game expectations.
"We're still coming back in to play, so we're still here to win," Butters said.
"We've had a few guys get their first one. Guys like Matty Wines, who has been around a long time, won a few in the twos but has finally got one in division one.
"It's the same for Ollie King and Jenko. It's nice to bring in some new guys. It keeps it fresh."
Russells Creek fought hard late to get back into the game through Tyler Schafer (24 runs) and Jimmy Elford (39) but tight overs to King, Lewis and Schlaghecke at the death sewed up the triumph.
Woodford will now turn its attention to a Twenty20 clash against Merrivale on Thursday night.
