While neither of Carisbrook’s senior grand finals went as planned, its reserves side got the job done with a confident 41-point win over Lexton for the flag.
The hefty victory and the side’s third premiership in a row was the silver lining to an extremely tough day for the Redbacks.
Brook took control of the match early on, leading the Tigers by two goals at the first break.
A four-goal surge in the second term saw Brook double their score while limiting Lexton to just one major and minor score.
This resulted in a 31-point discrepancy for Lexton at half time which was only worsened in the third term with the side missing three shots at goal.
Brook also missed three shots at goal in the third, but its lead allowed it the luxury to make some mistakes.
While the Tigers pepped up in the final quarter of the game, the Redbacks managed another four-goal haul, putting the nail in Lexton’s coffin and running out as cup victors.
