The Bendigo Pioneers scored two thrilling victories over country rival the Murray Bushrangers in NAB League action on Saturday.
A goal to Brodie Kemp late in the game lifted the under-18 boys to a four-point win at Shepparton's Deakin Reserve.
In heavy conditions in Wangaratta, the under-18 girls finished the stronger to win by 15 points.
The under-18 boys' 9.14 (68) to 9.10 (64) win was their first victory over Murray since 2004 - a streak of 27 matches.
It was also the first time since 2014 that the Pioneers have won two matches in a row.
"We've been really focused on the way we want to play and our brand and how we want to be seen as a footy program,'' Pioneers' coach Rick Coburn said.
"We've focused on what we can control, but we did mention it (the losing streak against Murray) at half-time and that this was an opportunity to have a good result.
"Credit to the boys that they were able to do it."
Ruckman Aaron Gundry impressed for the Pioneers, while midfielder Thomson Dow produced another solid game with a team-high 22 possessions.
For the second week in a row Bendigo's back six were superb. Braydon Vaz and skipper James Schischka led the way off half-back.
"We knew from when were putting our list together that we had plenty of options down back,'' Coburn said.
"The boys down back have played a lot of footy together through the Academy program and the Pioneers under-16s. They combine really well."

After two rounds the Pioneers are undefeated and in the top four on the NAB League ladder.
"(The ladder) isn't the be all and end all. We worry about the style we're playing and the development of our players, but it is nice for the boys get reward for effort,'' Coburn said.
"They're playing a really high-energy, good, tough brand of football at the moment."
The under-18 girls outplayed Murray for much of the game but it took the Pioneers until the final term to shake their hosts off.
The Pioneers led by just one point at the final change, but kicked the only two goals of the final term to win 3.6 (24) to 1.3 (9).
"It was a really pleasing effort by the girls again,'' Pioneers' coach Shawn McCormick said.
"We dominated the play at times, but missed a few chances to put the game away earlier."
Winger Annabel Strahan was superb for the Pioneers, while fellow midfielders Brooke Hards and Maeve Tupper continued their great form.
Half-forward Jordyn Jolliffe was a constant threat in attack in just her third game in two years.
McCormick paid special tribute to his backline, with key defender Kate Douglass producing her second-straight brilliant performance.
"Take last week's Geelong game out of the equation and the backline has only had seven goals kicked against them in 12 quarters of football. It's a great effort,'' McCormick said.
"The forward line is starting to get some cohesion and is not far away from getting the bang for our buck we deserve."
The under-18 girsl have a 2-2 record ahead of three-straight home games, starting with a clash against Gippsland at Epsom next Sunday.
