Temora's campaign to climb off the bottom of the ladder grew legs on Saturday when the Kangaroos overcame a slow start to beat Barellan by eight points.
The 'Roos recovered from a three-goal-deficit to power back to a 12.9 (81) to 11.7 (73) win at Barellan.
They kicked five goals in the second quarter to trail by a goal at half-time and kept the Two Blues to four goals in the second-half.
"I'm proud of the boys' efforts. After quarter-time they dug deep. We gave a bit of a jump but we pegged it back which was pleasing," Temora coach Jake Wooden.
"We've shown in the second half of the year that we don't give up."
Midfielder Will Reinhold was superb for Temora and he, Will Morton and Brad Moye all kicked three goals, while Liam Pattison and Rob Grant were strong down back. Jack Hillman had a big game for Barellan.
Temora moved level with Barellan and Coleambally on two wins but remain last on the ladder on percentage. The 'Roos play the Jets, CSU and The Rock-Yerong Creek in final weeks.
"The second half of the season we've got senior players back which has made a huge difference," Wooden said.
"Ideally we'd aim for another three wins. We're more than capable of doing that."
