The Saints' co-captain had an outstanding second half, racking up 18 disposals to finish with 26, including kicking the team's last goal in the final term to push the margin to 31 points before Albury staged a late fightback.
"He's amazing and he has that ability to lift in the big games," Myrtleford coach Jake Sharp said.
Dussin was everywhere in the second half, either use brute strength to take telling marks, using his finesse around ruck contests to tap the ball to advantage or kicking that crucial goal.
He was also best on ground in last week's thrilling three-point elimination final win over Wodonga Raiders.
For the second successive week, the Saints will start underdogs in Sunday's preliminary final against Lavington at Wodonga's John Flower Oval.
