For the first time in the National Premier League season, the Riverina Rhinos have been able to pick up the points after a 3-1 win over Belconnen United in horrendous conditions at Solar Mad Stadium on Saturday night.
Rhinos coach Gabriel Abdala said it was a great feeling to finally get points on the board.
"It is something that we have worked all season for, and then every week it has been something," he said.
"To finally pull off a win, it is a massive relief and satisfying that we can get points out of a game."
It was a quick start for the Rhinos who looked threatening early before they were able to break the deadlock after a Conor Earley corner was turned into the back of the net by Keith Jackson with 12 minutes gone.
As the heavens opened in the first half, the Rhinos continued to look the side that would be more likely to add to their advantage with Adrian Montagner in the Rhinos goal proving to be more than equal to the limited chances Belconnen were able to create.
The Rhinos were able to hold their 1-0 advantage into halftime, and with the rain continuing to fall, they continued to create chances before they were awarded a penalty for a handball inside the box.
Earley stepped up to take the penalty and slotted home cooly to make it 2-0 with a quarter of an hour remaining.
Montagner was able to show his keeping skill to deny a number of great chances which would have seen Belconnen get back into the game however they were able to find the back of the net with 10 minutes remaining.
After a melee broke out on the field following a rough challenge on Pandolfo, the Rhinos were able to put the game to bed with Jackson showing his speed to cut back off his wing and find the bottom corner to score his second of the game in injury time.
The two new signings for the Rhinos in Jackson and Earley were crucial for Abdala's side getting the win, and he paid credit to the impact they have had on the side.
"Both players over the past couple of weeks have shown their quality and their talent," he said.
"Keith has scored in most of the games that he has played and Conor has been influential since he came in."
The Rhinos will look to continue this form when taking on Woden-Weston.
