The Albury-Wodonga Spitfires slumped to a third straight defeat to start the Capital League season with a 6-0 loss to Central at Albury Hockey Centre on Saturday.
Just one goal separated the sides after two quarters, but Central fired in three in the third term and another two in the last to record a big win.
The Spitfires had limited chances in attack and far too many turnovers contributed to the end result.
Tim Jones, Noah Erdeljac, David Foster and Patrick Baine were the Spitfires' best.

"We all agreed there was a lack of desire and we were our own worst enemy," coach Shayne Newell said.
"We have to take these losses as learning lessons and keep working/ training together to start to improve in each area of the game.
"Poistives were that there were some passages of play that looked good and with more training should become more consistent going forward."
