A bit more patience in the circle in the second half paid dividends for Kiwi Diggers as they secured their first win of the season on Sunday.
Trailing Tudor Wests 1-nil at half-time Kiwis slotted three unanswered goals in the second half for a 3-1 win.
After not managing to pick up a win until the final game last season, coach Josh Worpel said there was "a really good feeling" afterwards.
"Hopefully it will lift our younger guys' confidence that they can fight and can win," he said.
One of their three goalscorers, Worpel thought their defence really set the game up for them.
"We really scrambled well in defence and everyone was on their man," he said.
It was only really a little lapse in concentration late in the first half that allowed Tudors to score, and unlike the previous week against South United they switched back on.
"It was good to see the younger guys wanted to work harder," he said.
He said they had "heaps" of chances early on but couldn't convert them.
"We were more patient in the circle in the second half," he said.
"The first half we were rushing a bit."
"The second half we slowed it down and simplified it and were able to find easier results."
"We got a few tap-in goals which was good to see, that people were in the rights spots."
He thought Ryan Constable was really good for them.
"He made a lot of crucial intercepts and got us going forward," he said.
Two goal margins were the order of the day with South United then edging out Workies 6-4.
"I was pretty happy with how we played," Souths coach Sam Clifton said.
"Our build-up from the back was very good, the young guys are starting to get some good connections there."
"We had a lot of good flowing play and we ended up getting three strokes which is quite unusual."
"That came through just sustained pressure in attack."
He said that was probably one of the big differences to previous weeks - that sustained attack.
Their passing game was also "pretty strong" and they forced Workies into a lot of turnovers in the midfield.
"Jarrod (McCluand) had probably his best game of the year in the middle," Clifton said.
"He was quite strong in the 50-50 contest and his tackling was quite strong and resulted in a lot of turnovers and a lot of easy ball through there."
There are still a lot of things they need to work on, he said. Their radar for one was a bit off.
"We had a lot of opportunities that we didn't capitalise on," Clifton said.
The chances Workies got were also, he thought, quite soft on their behalf.
"We've got to work on being more diligent in not giving them opportunities," he said.
He said there were no real standouts, everyone contributed across the board.
