Drysdale upstaged ladder leader Ocean Grove to claim the Bellarine Football Netball League C Grade title on Saturday 14 September.
Drysdale 23 defeated Ocean Grove 18 by five goals.
The Hawks gained the early ascendancy in a tense opening and led the Grubbers by five goals at quarter time 8 goals to 3 goals.
Third-placed Drysdale had plenty of motivation after they went down in their C Grade grand final clash against Barwon Heads last year.
The Grubber never gave up and were always within striking distance at each quarter break.
Ocean Grove goaler Jesse Sutton shot 10 goals from 16 attempts, while Tina Birch scored 5 goals and Heidi Bennett shot 3 goals.
Drysdale’s Kathy Dunn was her side’s leading scorer with 18 goals from 34 attempts.
