SINCE losing in the opening round to Shoalhaven United, the Huskisson-Vincentia Seagulls have bounced back with a vengeance - rattling off back-to-back wins.
Their most recent came on Saturday at Sharman Park, where they ousted the previously undefeated Illaroo 2-nil, thanks to goals from Gary Masterson (sixth minute) and Jayden Lee (66th).
"I thought we dominated the possession against Illaroo and showed we are starting to grow into the strong team we know we are capable of being," Seagulls skipper Gary Neimeier said.
"The most pleasing thing from the game was our ability to keep a clean sheet, as it's something that we have really tried to emphasise at training.
"One thing we do need to work on is our finishing in front of goal - we create enough chances to win every game, we just need to start being more composed in front of goal and converting them."
Elsewhere, Bomaderry made a statement at home, smashing Shoalhaven Heads-Berry 7-nil.
In the seven-goal drubbing, Brendan Kellet scored three goals for the Tigers while Benjamin Seyffer (two), Samuel Baxter and Parker Solley also found the back of the net.
The Culburra Cougars chalked up their second win of the season on Saturday, defeating Manyana 4-2 at Culburra Oval.
Despite the scoreline being 1-all at the break, three second half goals secured all three points for the Cougars.
In the win Mitch Blundell, Rhys Mooy, Karl Ingeman and Chad Poland kicked goals for the Cougars, as Billy Zappas booted both of Manyana's goals.
At Emmett Street Oval, Milton-Ulladulla picked up their win of the season, cruising past the Callala Brumbies 3-1.
Panthers' Jarrod Murray and skipper Zane Wilson scored within two minutes of each other in the first half before Murray's second in the 83rd minute sealed the result - with Josh Hunt scoring the hosts lone goal.
The final match of the round saw United easily account for the Sussex Seahawks 4-1 at Lyrebird Park - to remain undefeated this season with two wins and one draw to their names.
Jaxon Forrester, Matthew Chappel, Taite Arney and Luke Kellett all scored for the Bears in the victory as captain Marcus Daley scored the visitors only goal.
St Georges Basin had the bye in round three.
Looking ahead to round four, Callala will host Illaroo at Emmett Street Oval, Bomaderry travel to the Manyana Sports Field to play the Wanderers, Shoalhaven Heads-Berry welcome competition front-runners St Georges Basin to Vic Zealand Oval, the Seagulls go toe-to-toe with the Cougars at the Huskisson Sports Field and Sussex clash with Milton-Ulladulla at the Thompson Street Sporting Complex - with Alex Dicker's Shoalhaven United, who currently sit in second spot, having the bye.
