A sun-bathed Gissing Oval welcomed in-form Hurstville FC to town as they looked to take of advantage of any potential slip ups from UNSW in their clash with Bankstown later in the evening.
Wagga City often threaten to be a banana-skin match for visiting teams, and they caused Hurstville FC a few early headaches in this match.
However, it was Hurstville who opened the scoring through Tomislav Borovickic on 7 minutes.
Bravely, both sides threw caution to the wind and attacked with purpose and regularity as the half wore on.
With chances falling to both teams, the next goal would be crucial in ultimately deciding the result of the match. And that goal came in the 32nd minute, as experienced striker Paul Gagro grabbed his first goal of the match with a clever finish.
Boosted by a 2-goal cushion, Hurstville FC began to assert their dominance in the match, stroking the ball around calmly, looking to stifle the enthusiasm of the young Wagga side.
Hurstville FC eventually killed the game off with their third and final goal in the 70th minute, as Paul Gagro snared his second of the game.
3 goals and 3 points for Hurstville FC as they jump UNSW on the ladder and find themselves inside the top four for the first time since Round 5.
