Temora has dealt Junee’s finals hopes a massive blow by taking a surprise 28-12 win at Laurie Daley Oval.
Despite having seven players back up from reserve grade, the Dragons had too much firepower for the top four side.
Jock Ward crossed for a hat-trick as the Dragons brought up their fourth win of the season, and first over a side in the first half of the competition.
Captain-coach Sam Elwin was thrilled to score another win as he looks to rebuild with a young side.
“We warmed up with nine players so it was very courageous,” Elwin said.
“The main thing we wanted to do was build a platform which we are starting to do with a few wins together.”
Hayden Philp was sublime for the visitors while Ward, Jake Milnes, backing up from a full game of reserve grade, and Yoan Veve were also good.
The Diesels drop down to fourth with only percentage keeping them inside ahead of a clash with Gundagai.
