LEETON United will go into the Easter break with back-to-back wins to their name after defeating Cootamundra on Sunday afternoon.
United hit the road on Sunday morning for their first away game of the season after accounting for Tolland the week before at MIA Sports Ground.
The team went into the clash not knowing much about their opposition and were several key players down, but were still able to register a 2-1 victory.
Adam Raso was unavailable due to work commitments, but his ankle was also wreaking havoc late in the week.
Dan McKenzie was also out injured, while Pablo Quarin was away and unable to play.
However, this meant young gun Nathan Ciccia was brought into the team, while Scott Munro and Munya Kawara returned to first grade.
Leeton United first grade coach Frank Alampi was particularly pleased with Ciccia's performance in his debut match.
"I thought he equipped himself very play and he played very well," he said.
"I was very pleased with his performance.
"He's one of the younger players I have spoken about before. There's a few who are knocking at the door for first grade selection this year."
United's first goal on Sunday was scored by Connor Edenden, with Kawara picking up the match winner with about 10 minutes remaining in the game.
"They were both very good goals ... team goals," Alampi said.
"We scored first, Coota got their goal next and then we picked up the match winner with about eight to 10 minutes to go."
After an inconsistent opening round performance against Tolland where United game out guns blazing in the first half, but well away in the second, Alampi was pleased with their second-round effort.
"I thought we did play better ... it was obviously a very different game, but it was a hard-fought win," Alampi said.
"Having a few players out, I thought we equipped ourselves well. There's obviously areas we need to improve, but that will come."
United's reserve grade side had a huge day out, picking up a stunning 9-0 victory over Cootamundra.
Leeton United will still train twice this week as they prepare for their third round clash with the competition's current yardstick in Wagga United on April 28.
