The flying start to life in the NPL2 competition has continued for Yoogali SC after they came away with a 4-0 win over O'Connor Knights at Solar Mad Stadium on Sunday.
The Yoogali side was on top for much of the first half but wasn't able to find the breakthrough.
That was Danny Roche found Mitch Baginate who was able to make a brilliant run up the right side before turning three defenders and supplying Joe Preece with a tap in to see the home side leading 1-0 at the break.
Yoogali continued to press the O'Connor defence into making errors in the early stages of the second half before a Bagiante corner found Grant Davidson who headed the ball back across the box to Isaac Donadel who placed the ball past the keeper for a 2-0 lead.
The goal-scoring continued with Roche putting home his first goal in Yoogali colours after pouncing on a rebound before Calvin Roddie put the game to bed after he was found with a lofted through ball from Preece to make it 4-0.
Coach Luke Santolin said he couldn't have imagined a better start to the season.
"A 4-0 win against a team that was earmarked to do well this year so we are buzzing and we have taken another big step forward today," he said.
" A lot of people at our club have waited a long time for this opportunity and for us to hit the ground running like this, we aren't getting carried away, but it is great.
"The whole club is up and about, and it is what we have been waiting for for a long time."
The combination play between Roche, Bagiante, Roddie and Preece had O'Connor in a lot of trouble throughout the game, and Santolin expects their speed to be Yoogali's main threat.
"A lot of these Canberra sides have big centre backs, but their weakness is that they are slow and I think Danny (Roche) really made life tricky for them," he said.
"Most teams' weaknesses are their strength, and we have small guys up the front, and they are fast and nippy, so it is something that we have to play on.
"We attacked at lightning pace at times, and if we are on, I think we will be in for a few good chances."
Without the services of Andrew Keady at right-back and Andrew Vitucci in the midfield, one of the real standouts for the day, outside of the forwards, in the performance of Kolby Seers.
"It is beautiful to have to great performers out and to come in and carry on that is what every coach wants," he said.
"Kolby deserves to be really proud of himself."
Yoogali will look to continue their good form when they take on Canberra White Eagles at home next weekend.
"We have to keep the momentum going, but we can't get carried away," he said.
"We don't know what these teams are going to bring. The first 10-20 minutes of every game is about feeling them out like we did today and hopefully, we can build."
