Yanco-Wamoon have ticked off their first goal for the 2019 Group 20 season after picking up their first win of the season after a close battle with Darlington Point Coleambally on Saturday.
Hawks co-coach Andrew Smith said it was good to break the duck early in the season.
"It is always a bit of a relief to get the first win of the season," he said.
"There was no real standout for us it was just a good team effort."
The Roosters were able to take the lead with Billy Robb getting across the line but it was short lived as the Hawks hit back five minutes later with Troy Preston getting across the tryline.
The sides traded tries again just before halftime with Dave Collett crossing for the Roosters while Shannon Bradbrook got over to see the side's go into halftime locked at 12-all.
Harry Daudravuni scored to see the Hawks take the lead early in the second half but Luke Hogan and Sam Bartter scored two quick tries to see the Roosters holding a 22-16 lead.
Two tries in six minutes at the end of the game was enough to ensure that the Hawks were able to pick up the two points with a 28-22 win.
"For us this was a four-point game given that we have two weeks off," Smith said.
"We said at the start of the season that we wanted to win one of our first two games an we have ticked that off which is good."
While Smith was pleased to come away with the two points he knows there is plenty of work ahead for his troops.
"With the couple of weeks off it gives us a chances to work on our fitness and structure," he said.
"We didn't have much of a preseason so the first two games for us have been pretty much pre season hit outs and the season will start properly for us in two weeks time."
The Hawks coach was pleased to see his side come through the game without any serious injuries.
"We went in with a couple of little niggles but they now have two weeks to rest up and be right for the next game," he said.
The Hawks will take on TLU after the Easter break.
