Myrtleford hard man Nathan Laracy left the bumper crowd with another highlight, taking the mark of the day.
With 99 seconds left in the game and his team's season finished, down by 21 points, the defender charged back with the flight of the ball, seemingly oblivious to the other players who he was about to collide heavily with, yet he still held the mark.

"It's incredible that guy, the love I have for him and how he goes about his footy is phenomenal," proud coach Jake Sharp said of his courageous team-mate.
"He's reckless in every action that he does, the game was pretty much done and to see him fly like that shows what his team-mates mean to him."
There were plenty of tears in the Saints' dressing room, but not just because the most remarkable season had finally come to an end.
The players have an incredible bond and Sharp is the driver of that, loved by his players and he returns that with his passion for them.
Meanwhile, Lavington defender Nick Meredith also took a superb courageous mark.
Midway through the first term, Myrtleford's Lachie Dale looked a certainty to mark a high ball, but Meredith raced back and, without every looking at the ball, marked it in his hands above a stunned Dale, who could only shake his head at the athleticism.
"It's alright if they're not coming at you, if they're going back with the flight, there's no real risk," he said modestly.
