Marong is back on the winner's board after taking a 20-goal triumph over Bridgewater on Saturday.
The 54-34 effort marks the first time the team had won a match in nearly a month, having faced a bye and two losses in the lead up to the match.
Now that finals are fast-approaching, Panthers coach Bianca Garton said the win had come at the perfect time.
"It was a really important game for us," she said.
"As a team we knew it was crucial to get the win yesterday after the month that we'd had.
"The key was regrouping so that we could play four strong consistent quarters"
The win has secured the Panthers third on the ladder ahead of the Mean Machine and behind Mitiamo - who they will face in next week's round 12.
During the match against Mean Machine, Garton said her side was able to take control of the match from the get-go and led at each quarter.
"It was pleasing for us to finally put four consistent together which is what we'd focused on achieving in recent weeks," she said.
"Overall, it was a really good game from us."
Garton credited the victory to the team returning to what it does best - getting back to the basics.
"The girls wanted to prove to themselves what they're capable of achieving and we went back to playing really basic netball which we were executing at the start of the season."
