Todd Henderson played a match-winning knock to rescue Albury from the jaws of defeat on Saturday.
With his side 6/35 and still needing 34 runs to beat Corowa at Billson Park, Henderson hit seven boundaries on his way to 31 off 22 balls.
That knocked the stuffing out of the visitors as Albury closed out a four-wicket win in the 13th over.
"It was a phenomenal innings under pressure and he delivered," Albury captain Ross Dixon said.
"It was great to see. Todd's moved to the club from Wagga and he won us that game.
"Corowa were excellent in the field and excellent with the ball but in the space of 15 minutes, he changed the day.
"We have a player-of-the-day mug and he's won that.
"He's got his four kids down from Wagga and we love having him here.
"I'm pleased for him because he's a good player and it settles him in."
Albury's spinners were all over Corowa early, with Mani Singh (3-6), Kade Brown (2-13) and Dixon (2-22) supported by Jerim Hayes (0-9) as the visitors slumped to 68 all out.

Two players were run out by direct hits and Connor Smith claimed a superb catch on the boundary but Corowa refused to roll over.
Mark Athanitis ripped through Albury's top order with 5-15 before Henderson turned the tide.
"That's two weeks in a row we've won tight games," Dixon said.
"It isn't about winning pretty, it's about winning games of cricket.
"In the past, we might have played nice cricket and not won. We know we need to improve but we're 3-0."
