The Campbells Creek reserves sang the Magpies' club song for the first time in 1358 days on Saturday.
The Magpies' reserves had lost 50-straight MCDFNL matches dating back to August 22, 2015, before they broke the drought with a 27-point win over Royal Park.
Campbells Creek trailed by one point at three quarter-time, but produced a blistering last quarter.
With victory in sight, the Magpies added 6.4 to 2.0 to win 15.9 (99) to 10.12 (72).
"It meant the world to the club,'' Campbells Creek president Scott Jones said.
"It was an emotional win. Some of those players have been at the club since the under-12s in the juniors.
"Everyone in that reserves team plays for each other. It was a massive moment for the club."
Campbells Creek has struggled with playing stocks in recent years, but they've always managed to field a reserves team.
In 2016 their average losing margin was 121.3 points, in 2017 the average losing margin dropped to 106.7 before it jumped to 178.3 in 2018.
Last year the club copped seven defeats of more than 200 points, including a 303-point defeat.
While the Magpies kicked six goals in the final quarter on Saturday to win the game, in the vast majority of their defeats over the past three years they've battled to kick three goals in a match.
"It's been terribly hard in the past two-and-half years. We've had to have under-17s play up in the reserves each week just so we could make up the numbers,'' Jones said.
"Over that time it's been quite often that (reserves coach) Kel Stevens and his wife Marg (club secretary) have been on the phone at 11.30 on Saturday mornings trying to get players for the reserves.
"To have a win was great for Kel and Marg. When the siren went they were both in tears.
"The team celebrated accordingly on Saturday - responsibly of course.
"We had a family function on Saturday night and having the reserves win that day made the night.
"The under-13 netball team had its second win of the season, so having a couple of wins made the family night even more enjoyable."
Jones was hopeful the reserves success would rub off on the Magpies' senior side.
After only winning one game last year, the Campbells Creek seniors are winless in three rounds, with their losing margins 76 points, 294 points and 226 points.
"Everyone at the club works hard and it's thinkgs like the reserves win that makes all the hard work worthwhile,'' Jones said.
After the inter-league break, Campbells Creek tackles Avoca. The Avoca reserves also have a 1-2 record after three rounds.
Could the Magpies go back-to-back?
