FOR the second year in a row, the Gippsland League has taken out both grades at the annual Evans Cup junior football carnival.

The region's major league lived up to its status with nine wins from as many games across the day at the Yinnar Recreation Reserve. 

The under 18 team opened proceedings with a 41-point against the North Gippsland league. 

The win set the tone for the day, with a 16-point defeat of eventual runner up Ellinbank and District the closest an opponent managed to get. 

Gippsland midfielder Anthony Rosato was voted player of the carnival by the umpires and was also named his team's best player.

Matthew Notman, Jacob Davis, Joel Mitchell and Ryan Sparkes were best for Ellinbank and District, North Gippsland, Mid Gippsland and West Gippsland leagues respectively.

It was a similar story in the under 16 division, with Gippsland finishing undefeated, including two 100-plus-point wins.

Small forward Harvey Neocleous was named player of the carnival, receiving the three votes as best-on-ground from the umpires in all three games, and was also named Gippsland's best player. 

Joshua Smith, Lachlan Hedrick and Bayley Paul were the best players for West Gippsland, Ellinbank and Mid Gippsland.
