Brendan Fevola has capped off his brilliant debut season for Yarrawonga with the Pigeons winning the Ovens And Murray premiership on Sunday afternoon at Lavington.

The Pigeons led by 43 points at one stage in the final term before Albury surged home to go down by 12 points: Yarrawonga 14.9 (93) to Albury 12.9 (81). Fevola kicked five goals in the game having booted 100 goals in 14 games during the home and away season.

Former Richmond player Craig Ednie was adjudged best-on-ground.

Albury had beaten Yarrawonga in the past three Grand Finals.

Fevola, who booted 100 goals in the home and away season in just 13 games, had not played in a Grand Final since his junior side the Dandenong Stingrays lost in the Under-18s.

After a controversial (and at times brilliant) AFL career, Fev has been a fevelation in the bush where he has attracted big crowds. More than 12,000 were at Sunday's decider.

His Grand Final on Sunday wasn't without controversy, however, as he was sent off for 15 minutes after a scuffle with opponent Jay Koehler (also sent off) in the first quarter.

Earlier on Sunday, Geelong won the VFL Premiership to send off retiring players David Wojcinski and Simon Hogan in style.

The Cats finished much stronger than Port Melbourne, kicking the last four goals in the game to win the decider by 33 points.

Former AFL coaches Matthew Knights and Gary Ayres went head to head, but it was Knights who managed to lead his Cats to victory.
