The Sutherland Sharks FC have ended their 10 game winless streak in emphatic fashion beating Sydney Olympic 3-0 at Seymour Shaw Park on Saturday night .
The win is only Sutherland's second of the season with their other three pointer coming against the same team all the way back in round one .
Goals to Raul Romero, Jeremy Cox and Charles Lokolingoy were unanswered by Olympic, leaving the home side with all three points from the match.
Sutherland Sharks coach Terry Palapanis was elated with his team's performance and result which gets them off the bottom of the competition ladder.
"We obviously started strong, but to be honest it's been coming for weeks," he said.
"Today the difference was we had a great goal to start off with and the boys lifted their confidence.
"We stopped them, that was the first task and I thought the boys did exceptionally well.
"I think they're a great side with some great players.
"We've played them twice and we didn't concede against a team like that.
"It will be a happy change room."
The first goal came after just nine minutes for the Sharks with some good combination play from the hosts saw Romero find himself with the ball in a dangerous position.
Olympic defender Zach Mackenzie struggled to mount enough pressure on the attacker, who comfortably sent his shot out of reach of Paul Henderson and into the netting.
Sutherland continued to push forward, finding the holes in Olympic's formation to maintain dominance in the first half doubling their lead just before the break, with Cox making his way onto the scoreboard in the 45th minute.
Olympic found a sense of urgency in the second half, transitioning to a more attacking style as they attempted to chase the game but their efforts were at a loss with Sutherland's new recruit Charles Lokolingoy rubbing salt into the wound in the closing stages of the contest.
Lokolingoy received the ball from substitute and new recruit Alex Lopez and hammered it into the top corner in the last minute and kick of the game.
