Ainslie full-forward Hayden Armstrong put on a show that gave the Tricolours back-to-back minor premierships.
But his four goals also put one of his hands on the goal-kicking award as well.
Ainslie secured the AFL Canberra first grade minor premiership for the second year running with a 13.15 (93) to 9.10 (64) win over the Eastlake Demons at Alan Ray Oval on Saturday.
Armstrong took his haul to 42 goals to give him a nine-goal lead of Belconnen's Beau Walker going into the final round.
"I just keep chugging along, I had a pretty slow start to the game and then just worked my way into it, got a bit of the footy and I'm pretty happy with the four," Armstrong said.
But it was not an easy day at the office for Ainslie.
Led by a two-goal performance from Jackson Crowe, Eastlake were in with a chance to upset Ainslie's eight-game winning streak.
A 21-point third quarter by the Demons kept the game tightly contested, but Armstrong says it was all about winning the ball in the middle in the final term.
"It was a tight contest all day, but we just went back to what we do best and that is getting the hard ball and getting it long to our forwards, and then converting on the scoreboard," he said.
The win allows for a home final for the newly crowned minor premiers which Armstrong says is a tough task for any opposition side.
They've won six of their eight home games with only one loss.
"We don't really lose out here and we try to keep it a bit of a fortress when other teams come to play," Armstrong said.
Despite the loss, Crowe felt they could match it with any side come finals.
"It's good to know that we can compete with any team in the competition when we are on," Crowe said.
"Anything can happen in a couple weeks, we've had a couple of injuries and a few blokes come back into form.
"So it's kind of whoever rocks up on the day can take the win which is exciting for us."
In other results, the Belconnen Magpies climbed into second spot on the ladder, leapfrogging the Queanbeyan Tigers with the 9.14 (68) to 8.10 (58) win at Queanbeyan.
The Tigers will now have to beat Ainslie in the final round to have any chance of reclaiming the double chance.
The Gungahlin Jets have ensured they'll avoid the wooden spoon, thrashing the Tuggeranong Hawks by 63 points in the battle of the cellardwellars at Greenway Oval.
