Port Macquarie Magpies' under-11s showed their class through the middle stages of the contest on the way to a comfortable 10.10 (70) to 4.9 (33) grand final victory over Coffs Harbour on Sunday.
The Magpies kicked seven of their 10-goal match tally in the middle quarters to claim the title for the second year in a row.
They are a highly skilled and well-drilled outfit and were able to put together slick passages of play and positive ball movement.
To the credit of the young Breakers, they never gave up and had their most productive quarter of the match when the result was a foregone conclusion.
A three-goal last quarter was a good way for the Breakers to show their resilience after poor kicking in the first half left them goalless.
Magpies captain Tobie Quinn was best on ground for his team while Annalise Crawley was the Breakers' strongest performer.
The AFL North Coast end of season awards were presented to Quinn and Brenton Mance (Camden Haven Bombers) who couldn't be split for the Best and Fairest.
Port Macquarie were no match for a rampant Nambucca Valley Lions in the under-13 decider with the Lions cruising to a 49-point victory.
Nambucca put on their best performance of the season and claimed back-to-back premierships in a 9.13 (67) to 2.6 (18) win.
After a tight first quarter, the Lions accelerated in the second and third terms to score three and four goals respectively against one goal for Port and put the result beyond doubt.
The Magpies fielded two teams in the age group and managed to finish in second and fourth places on the ladder.
Will Devereaux was deemed Best on Ground for the Lions, while Isaac Luke claimed the same honour for Port.
The 2020 Best and Fairest award was shared by three players, being Wilson Baade (Nambucca Valley Lions), Tane Skinner (Sawtell Toormina Saints), and Lincoln Proctor (Port Macquarie Flyers).
The Rising Star award for best Under 12 player was won by Isaac Luke (Port Macquarie Swoopers).
Coffs Harbour and the Magpies then turned on a classic encounter in the under-15 match that went down to the absolute wire with three lead changes in the last few minutes.
The Breakers held their nerve the longest to sneak home 7.8 (50) to 6.10 (46).
Not only was this match a nailbiter, it was a highly skilled and free flowing affair that showed all of the best qualities of junior footy on the North Coast.
Port kicked the last goal of the third term to open a 16-point lead at the break, and when they goaled again early in the final term it looked as if the trophy was heading south.
Coffs then kicked the next four goals to breathe new life into the contest, putting their noses in front for the first time since early in the first quarter.
With less than five minutes to play it seemed as if the momentum had shifted completely to the Breakers but Port kicked a goal to regain the lead by just two points with under three minutes to go.
When it appeared that time would run out for the Coffs team they managed one more twist to kick the final goal and regain the lead with 100 seconds left in the match.
Port launched another raid but the Breakers defence stood resolute to claim the title.
Oscar McKenzie was rightly awarded the Best on Ground for the Breakers while Cedar Barry was outstanding for Port to receive the same accolade.
