Old Collegians recorded its first victory of the Warrnambool and District league season with a commanding second half against Kolora-Noorat.
It was a see-sawing affair with the Warriors jumping out to an early lead only for the Power to be up by two goals near the halfway point.
But the Warriors ran away in the second half and claimed a 57-47 victory.
Collegians were without goal keeper and key player Sara Quinn due to other commitments.
Co-coach Jess Toleman praised the efforts of Nicole O'Shannessy, Emily Porra, Rachel Alderson and Vanessa McLaren who stepped up in Quinn's absence.
Toleman said her girls fought hard until the final whistle.
"The girls have been working really hard on when they're tired and making the correct decision down the court and that was something that we drilled-in at training," she said.
"Today, to watch them do that, was really good.
"They were tired and they just kept running and making correct decisions, which helped us get over the line today."
The Warriors best players were O'Shannessy, Porra and Alderson.
Meanwhile, reigning premiers Nirranda proved it remains the team to beat this season.
The Blues overcame the Dogs by five goals in a thrilling grand final rematch, which finished 41-36.
Steph Townsend's side was just one goal up at the final break and managed to charge ahead in the last quarter.
Nirranda's best were Lisa Anders, Sophie Adams and captain Katie Ryan.
Allansford notched up its first win of the season with a 19-goal triumph over East Warrnambool, which finished 59-40.
Mikayla Bidmade was among the Cat's best with 41 goals.
Merrivale continued its winning ways with a 54-33 victory against Panmure.
Goalie Tanaya Harradine shot a whopping 47 goals for the Tigers.
Merrivale's best were captain Nicole Ferguson, Millie Mahony and youngster Tatum Cassidy.
Timboon Demons made it three in a row for new coach Leah Sinnott with a six-goal win over Russells Creek, which ended up 47-41.
The best players for the winning side were Emily Jansen Van Beek, Mellissa McKenzie and goalie Hayley Plozza, who finished with 22 shots through the net.
Timboon Demons sit on top of the ladder and have the Easter weekend off after playing round three earlier this year.
