Port Kembla brought up 15 straight Illawarra Premier League victories in style on Saturday with a 2-0 win over Bulli.
The newly crowned League Championship winners got off to a flying start, scoring in just the 5th minute through David Polidaro.
After some solid lead up work in the midfield, Polidaro took on the last defender and slotted into the Bulli net with class to give Port a vital early lead.
Bulli tried to work their way into the game throughout the 90 minutes, but were unable to craft an equaliser without leading goal scorer Ben McDonald on deck.
In the end, it was Port that got the game's second goal with 10 minutes left on the clock.
It was no surprise when Nuno Pires latched on to a through ball and finished with aplomb to give Stuart Beedie's men their 15th straight win.
"I am not sure when that is going to end but I just hope that it is not at WIN Stadium," Beedie said.
"It probably wasn't our best performance of the season but we showed a lot of character.
"Bulli gave us a tough game for the full 90 minutes and a good result in the end for us, a grinding result.
"All of our last five games, other than Coniston, have been around a one-goal difference, so it has been a fairly tough run in."
Port should have an easier task next weekend when they face South Coast United before enjoying a week off in preparation for a massive major semi-final at WIN Stadium. Their finals opponent is still to be determined.
Elsewhere, Wollongong United defeated Tarrawanna 3-0 on Saturday at Tarrawanna Oval, South Coast United came from two goals down to earn a 3-3 draw with Fernhill, and Wollongong Olympic went one step closer to finals football with a 2-1 win at Woonona.
