Albury United made it back to back wins on Sunday with a hard-fought 5-2 result against Boomers at Glen Park.
The Greens picked up from where they left off against Wangaratta last weekend with an early goal to Paula Mitchell, but found themselves in an arm wrestle.
Alarna Parascos netted an equaliser later in the half before Isabella Law restored United's advantage in the 36th minute.
Mitchell bobbed up for her second on the stroke of half-time to give the Greens a handy 3-1 buffer at the break.
Parascos made it a brace early in the second half to keep Boomers in the hunt, but a defensive error handed Tiana Kotzur the simplest of finishes to make it 4-2 to United after 72 minutes.

A top header from Allanah Seary from a corner just two minutes later put United in the box seat, and, despite some late chances from both sides, the Greens walked away with the three points.
United coach Tony Cigana wasn't sure what to expect with a host of experienced Boomers players back in the side.
"Credit to the team, they carried on the form from last week in Wangaratta," he said.
"Boomers had their chances as well, but I think we just got on top of them in the second half and we were a fraction fitter."
There's plenty of upside for the Greens with Lisa Cary, Molly Goldsworthy and Alicia Torcaso still to return from injury.
Wangaratta, Albury Hotspurs and St Pats all had byes.
