South Wagga halted its four game slide with an emphatic 4-0 win over Tumut at Bull Paddock on Sunday.

Nazar Yousif had a field day up front, scoring all four goals.

But Warriors manager Andrew Hull said his side’s midfield was the key to the stunning victory.

“Our midfielders didn’t give Tumut any opportunities at all, they just dominated them and fed the ball through beautifully,” he said.

Hull was also quick to highlight the efforts of Daniel Casella, who did not let anything - or anyone - past him at right back, after moving up from reserves.

“He played 70 minutes and they never got around him,” Hull said.

“He was certainly a standout for us.”

South Wagga’s big win lay in stark contrast to their recent outings, having copped four consecutive heavy losses, three of which did not feature a Warriors goal.
