LEETON United picked up a win over a team considered to be one of the favourites for this year's Pascoe Cup on Sunday afternoon.
Leeton registered the 3-1 victory over Wagga United at Mia Sportsground in what coach Frank Alampi labelled as a solid team effort.
The two sides went into the match undefeated after they each picked up two consecutive wins to start the 2019 season.
However, it was Leeton United who now sits atop the first grade ladder after Lake Albert, who was also previously undefeated, also went down on the weekend.
Leeton scored through Adam Raso early in the first half, with Wagga responding soon after.
Anthony Trifogli scored Leeton's second of the day, with Raso picking up another to seal the deal as the match wore on.
Alampi wasn't getting too far ahead of himself given Sunday was only round three of the competition, but he was pleased with his side's performance.
"I thought we were more clinical, which is what we had been after," he said.
"We still have a lot more improving to do, but I did think we played well.
"It was a good effort."
United have also defeated Tolland and Cootamundra so far this season.
What has particularly impressed Alampi was the team's attitude to start the year.
"None of these games have been perfect ... there's been times where we've had to really fight hard," he said.
"What I've liked so far is the boys haven't given up or dropped their heads when it's been tough going.
"In the past, that's something we have probably done a little bit of, so as a coach it's pleasing to see them really push through and fight hard."
Leeton won't be resting on their laurels ahead of their next encounter.
At the time of going to print, just who they may be playing this weekend was unconfirmed thanks to the possibility of a State Cup challenge.
Alampi said he was hoping to have confirmation in the coming day, but the side's preparation would remain the same.
"The boys know, and they've told me this, that there's still improvement to come," he said.
