Redland Bombers' Phil Carse and Tom Salter's last games will always be remembered in NEAFL folklore.
The Bombers, who were trailing for most of the day on Saturday, turned it on in the last quarter to send out their retiring champions 21 point winners.
Canberra looked like they were going to stop the fairy-tale ending, however Phil Carse's impressive two late third quarter goals gave Redland the momentum.
It was almost like his highlights package of his prime playing days that had been broadcast all week, had inspired him to recreate those special moments.
After the game Carse was just relieved that they went through, especially considering he had not kicked one yet for the season.
The Bombers still had a lot to do to win the game at three quarter time. They trailed by 13 points and were kicking at the non-scoring end at Scottsdale Park.
The determination on all the players and coaches faces at three quarter time to send their two favourite sons out as winners and finish the year off on a high was evident for all to see.
And it showed in the last quarter, the Bombers quite literally came out flying.
NEAFL Team of the Year centre half forward and full forward Clay Cameron and NEAFL leading goal kicker Matt Hammelmann put on a show.
The duo, who kicked 102 goals between them for the year, dominated as the Bombers kicked six last quarter goals to Canberra's zero.
It was a win that Redland most definitely needed and showed all players, staff, sponsors and supporters that the club is on the right track.
The emotion after the game was clear to see and shows how much the club means to so many people.
Tom Salter and Phil Carse both teared up in their speeches as they thanked all the people that have helped them on their footy journey.
Between them they have played 329 games for the Bombers, won four best and fairest awards and have both been club captains.
