Blake Harper continued his excellent season to extend South Wagga's winning start to the season.
The Blues are yet to be beaten, but needed a 106-run fifth wicket partnership to steer them to victory against Kooringal Colts on Sunday.
Colts recovered from 4-85 to post 250 at Harris Park however it wasn't enough as Harper (83 not out) and Luke Gerhard (58) ensured the Blues remain on top of the ladder.
Blues captain Jeremy Rowe, who returned from injury in the clash, was pleased to come away with the four-wicket victory.
"We came out of the blocks quite positively but didn't quite end up getting contributions from the top five we probably wanted," Rowe said.
"We had the wobbles a couple of times but it shows the depth we've got at the moment that we can have that but still chase 250."
Colts captain Keenan Hanigan (89) led the resurgence as he combined with Dan Perri (44) for a 112-run partnership.
Libu Varghese (13) was then part of a 48-run partnership with Hanigan before the Colts lost their last five wickets for five runs.
Nathan Cooke did the damage as he fired late to finish with 5-51.
Rowe was pleased with how the Blues got themselves out of trouble late.
"When you get in a position to put a side away in the first innings you always like to do that but Keenan has been a qulaity cricketer around Wagga for quite some time now and always contributes against us," he said.
"He batted really well and had enough guys who were able to hang around with him to muster a pretty good total.
"After tea they really got on top for a period of time, and we weren't overly happy with that, but we were really happy with how the last session went and it went from us thinking we might be able to get away with 200 to then 270 or 280 looming.
"It changed around really quickly so we walked off thinking 250 wasn't a bad result for us."
The loss sees last year's preliminary finalists still without a victory this season and sets the Blues up for a top-of-the-table clash with Wagga City.
Rowe is looking forward to the grand final rematch.
"It is a huge game and they always loom as big games," he said.
"They've had another win this weekend and there is never an easy victory against them.
"We definitely look forward to it and now that we're in the two-day stuff it will really sort the sides that are there and thereabouts from the sides who are going to excel.
"Hopefully we can come up with a couple of good days cricket."
