Three tries from Emma Clements helped Albury to their first win of the season on Saturday.
After three defeats and three byes, a stop-start campaign finally took off at Murrayfield as the Steamers battled to a 22-0 victory over Leeton.
The home side were made to work hard early but once they got their noses in front, they never looked like relinquishing control.
"It was awesome to get our first win of the season," coach Tully MacPherson said.
"Having had so many byes in the first six weeks of the season, it's been hard to have the consistency to put a performance together so it was nice to see them get over the line.
"We changed up our structure from the last couple of weeks to simplify things."
The home side scored their first try five minutes before half-time and ran in three more during the second half.
MacPherson stressed the quality of the Steamers' all-round team performance in getting the job done.
"Everyone played their part," he said.
"Holly Mills filled in really well. Our normal fly-half was away, so she came in never having played the position and did a great job.
MacPherson hopes the Steamers will take confidence from this result ahead of trips to CSU and Ag College over the next fortnight.
"It's been a very frustrating season," he admitted.
"We're up to round seven of the tournament and this was only our fourth game.
"We played a game in round one, then we had a bye, then it was Easter, when there were no games, then we played a game and we had two weeks off.
"To finally get two games in a row and be able to put some time on the field, it's a nice change.
"You'll always take a lot of confidence out of a win but to hold the other team to nil was especially pleasing.
"We defended our line for the first 10 minutes and didn't let them score."
Meanwhile Griffith hit back from their lone loss of the season against Wagga City on Saturday.
Ua Ravu also scored three tries in the 30-0 win.
