Bridgenorth created its own unique piece of history on Saturday morning, hours before the club ran out for the NTFA senior grand final.
The Parrots finally ended a long 26-year wait at Windsor Park to claim their inaugural under-18s premiership.
There had been a number of nervous moments in front of goal early before taking control from Longford for a 7.13 (55) to 2.8 (20) victory.
"I spoke about all that at three-quarter time that we had one quarter to go, so let's make history - and we have," coach Zach Griffiths said.
While Bridgenorth were under pressure to end that cyclical mental barrier that evolved from hundreds of players before them missing grand final glory, Longford aimed for a near unheard of four-peat in the under-18s.
The Tigers only lost just once in 16 home-and-away games until the Parrots had inflicted a second in a eight-point semi-final fightback.
Title favoritism had turned around further after George Town almost caused a preliminary final upset before Bridgenorth completed the fairytale amid the 35-point win that cast aside Longford's grand final dominance.
NTFA finals fever
"We spoke of them being a bit of a juggernaut in this competition the last five or six years," Griffiths said.
"They just have a great juniors program that goes through every year, but we assembled the team that we thought could do it."
Bridgenorth's confidence had grown after Griffiths felt the side hit its straps in the final five weeks full of wins.
That had culminated with a defence that just conceded an average of 27 points and whose winning score in the decider would have beaten any opponent in that streak.
"We've grown as a backline unit," Griffiths said.
"We had about 10 people go through there and then we found our back seven that we could to rotate through.
"It showed in our last three games of finals that our backline won us games because other teams couldn't score."
