Riverina got their Country Championships campaign off to a winning start at Queanbeyan on Friday.
Lavington brothers Ryan and Nathan Brown combined to put Riverina on the front foot after bowling ACT Southern Districts out for 132 in the 41st over.
Ryan nabbed 2-22 opening the bowling with Nathan (3-15) cleaned up the tail.
However the run chase wasn't without a number of hurdles with Riverina surpassing the small total with two wickets in hand.
Opener Dean Bennett top scored with 28 with Nathan Brown made 27 batting at number six to help Riverina to victory.
South Wagga's Brayden Ambler made 10 at number three while 15-year-old teammate Jake Scott (1) was the last Riverina batsmen dismissed.
Riverina take on Western at Goulburn on Saturday before tackling Greater Illawarra on Sunday.
Meanwhile the Blues have called on more teenage talent for their clash with Lake Albert on Rawlings Park on Saturday.
With Ambler and Scott away with representative duties, Connor McGinn has been given an opportunity in first grade.
The 16-year-old joins fellow teenagers Noah Harper and Nathan Butt in the side.
South Wagga captain Luke Gerhard is confident they've got a great mix as they look to remain unbeaten.
"We've definitely got some good young fellas coming through at the club," Gerhard said.
