Sean Robertson opened the scoring in his debut appearance for the home side minutes before quick goals to John Martinovski and Andres Gomez put Wolves firmly in the driver?s seat before half time.
Shay Spitz pulled one back for the visitors in the second period before Sasho Petrovski put the icing on the cake for Wolves with a late goal to wrap up an impressive team performance.
The first opportunity of the match fell to Sash Tirovski in the opening minutes as Spitz?s corner eluded everyone to find him unmarked in the box; however Brody Crane was on hand to block the shot off the line with his right foot.
Dion Shaw was called into action at the other end soon after, racing off his line to steal the ball from Robertson?s feet as the debutant was put through on goal by the in form Gomez.
Petrovski went within inches of opening the scoring as he turned his marker after receiving a fantastic ball from Nick Littler; his shot left Shaw well beaten only to ricochet off the post and bounce clear.
The rebound collected by Gomez, who broke wide and picked out Petrovksi in the box once again, but was denied by a fine challenge from Josh Lawson.
The visitors went close on a couple of occasions as Adem Kir and Spitz dragged shots wide from the edge of the Wolves box while Robertson saw his effort saved at the other end before Gomez volleyed over from close range.
Spitz went close once again on the half hour mark, belting the ball into the side netting from a tight angle before Dave Abel fired high and wide from Martinovski?s free kick.
Wolves began to control the tempo of the match throughout the remainder of the half, with Spitz?s block needed to deny Petrovski?s indirect free-kick in the box before Mark Picciolini?s header from the ensuing corner lacked the conviction to find a way through.
The home side were duly rewarded for their spell of dominance on 38? minutes as Robertson beat Shaw to Martinovski?s cross to divert the ball into the back of the net and introduce himself to the home fans with a goal.
The following minutes produced extraordinary scenes as the hosts ran away with the match with two more goals in quick succession.
An unmarked Martinovski received ball at the far post from Gomez?s unselfish cross, and although the Rockdale defence did exceptionally well to block the initial shot on the line the rebound fell back to Martinovski to apply the finish and double Wolves lead.
The home fans barely had time to retake their seats as Wolves quickly reclaimed possession from kick off and picked out Gomez on the edge of the box. The enigmatic winger?s shot took a wild deflection off a Rockdale defender, wrong-footing Shaw en route to the back of the net as Wolves looked to have wrapped the match up before the break.
Wally Savor responded to the goal glut by injecting Sash Trajcevski and Pece Apolevski into his side during the interval, and the move almost paid immediate dividends as the latter picked out James Monie in the box only for the attacker to sky his effort high over the crossbar.
Rockdale pushed forward in hope of salvaging the match and were first denied by Dave Abel?s block on Jason Naidovski?s effort before the Spitz?s shot from a narrow angle clipped the far post.
Mark Picciolini fired over the crossbar at the other end before Trajcevski made a smart block to deny Robertson a second goal on debut.
Rockdale?s persistence eventually paid off on 64? minutes as Spitz found space to turn 25 yards from goal, launching a powerful drive beyond Crane?s reach and inside the far post.
Trevor Morgan reacted without delay; boosting his tiring midfield with Tayfun Buyokkopru, Cam Littler, and Stjepan Paric in an attempt to return momentum in their favour.
The visitors had their chances to pull back to within a goal of their opponents, but were let down by wayward finishing and Monie and Naidovski each spurned chances.
Wolves ensured their victory with a fourth goal in the dying minutes as Picciolini bamboozled his markers on the right wing before picking out Buyokkopru on the edge of the box, who played Petrovski through on goal with a spectacular volleyed through ball.
The experienced Wolves striker made no mistake, blasting the ball past Shaw to cap off a fine afternoon for the home side look to surge up the NSW Premier League table.
South Coast Wolves coach Trevor Morgan was delighted with the result and the effort his squad put in throughout the match:
?That?s what it?s all about ? sometimes they only concentrate in training for 4? minutes,? joked Morgan.
?Early on Sash (Petrovski) hit the post, and within 30?? seconds they?ve hit it for a goal kick, so I knew they (Rockdale) were a very good counterattacking side; they?re a very good technical side.
?So it was a fight for a while, then I wrote in my notes around 35? minutes that we?re starting to make something happen, and then bang bang bang ? clinical finishing, so happy days.
?Full credit to the boys, they were really hungry to make things happen, they were positive about what they did, and they took their chances with no hesitation.?
With today?s match the first of three in a busy week for his side, Morgan emphasised the importance of beginning with a positive result before facing Parramatta FC and Bonnyrigg White Eagles on Wednesday and Saturday respectively:
?All in all it?s a very important result for us,? said Morgan.
?It?s a week that we know is a very big and difficult week for us and we needed to start it with a win.
?So it?s a very important win and we now need to recover as best as possible.
?We need to train with quality on Tuesday before going to Parramatta on Wednesday night.?
Rockdale City Suns coach Wally Savor was obviously disappointed with the result, especially after conceding three goals in quick succession late in the first-half:
?For about 5-10 minutes I think we just lost our heads for a while,? said Savor.
?There?s no excuse for that, Wolves took their chances and scored, and good luck to them.
?We showed some good character, I thought we created enough chances in the second half, but Wolves scored another one while we were pushing forward looking for an equaliser.
?We had a go in the second half and I guess if we played that well in the first half it could have been a different story,? Savor concluded.
The afternoon?s early fixture saw Rockdale City Suns secure a 3-1 win over South Coast Wolves in Grade-20 Division.

Down a man for most of the second half, the home side demonstrated great tenacity grinding out a point from the match.
The match had started well for the home team, possession wise, but they seemed unable to turn this into effective shots on target due to a combination of poor final touches and a desperate and effective Manly defensive unit.
In the 7? minute Brad Boardman headed a Michael Robinson free-kick onto Brendan Gan but the former Sydney FC and Sutherland front man could not get to the ball before Manly goalkeeper Dylan Mitchell.
Then, in the 13? minute a cross from Jamie McMaster could only be headed down by Sean Bowden in his own penalty-area but no Bonnyrigg player could pounce on the loose ball before David Dodd cleared to safety.
The first time Andrew Bazi had to make any kind of save in the match was when Mathew Simon ran through from deep and tried to chip the ball onto the target, only for the ball to fall comfortably into Bazi?s hands.
Manly continued to effectively cut off Bonnyrigg attacks early in their creation and from the 20? minute the visitors started to build more effective attacks themselves.
On 25? minutes a Cattanach free-kick was headed goalwards by Marc Richards for Manly but the away supporters were disappointed to see the ball go over the crossbar.
On the half hour Brad Boardman was denied by goalkeeper Mitchell as the Bonnyrigg striker was put through by McMaster only for Mitchell to dive low at his feet and stop the progress of the ball.
The match went through a period of little chances on goal although Bonnyrigg continued to dominate possession and made good attacks down the flanks, especially on the left by Ben Spruce.
In the 36? minute Bazi denied Manly?s Jordan Edwards as his shot was deflected goalwards by a Bonnyrigg defender but Bazi changed direction and saved the ball. This chance had come thanks to a great piece of skill from Adam Foti who chipped the ball through to Edwards with a great deal of finesse.
Brendan Gan should have helped his side in front on the scoresheet in the 38? minute when he set up a great chance for Alex Canak, though Canak?s shot deflected off the desperate Manly defence. Even then the chance was not over with Nikola Zonjic pouncing on it but just as he shot he was put off by his marker and the ball sailed over the top.
2? minutes later, the best chance of the match for Bonnyrigg went begging. Gan crossed the ball from the right and the ball went through goalkeeper Mitchell?s hands. Chris Tadrosse was honing in on goal at the far post but was unable to slow and saw the ball fall behind him a metre from the target when all he would have needed was a touch for the ball to go in.
The sides went in at the break with the scores level, though Tadrosse was to have more disappointment at the goalmouth where he had missed the chance a few minutes before the break. 3? minutes after the break he was to be sent off defending that goal mouth. He had shown tremendous reflexes in saving a Marc Richards shot from going in to the top corner in the 48? minute but as he was not the goalkeeper, using his hands so effectively was problematic.
However it seemed worth the effort in the end as Foti lined up the penalty for Manly only to see another opponent stop the ball with his hands, this time the goalkeeper Bazi, to deny Manly the lead.
Manly made a couple of changes and started to win more possession, although shots on target still were few and far between.
In the 62? minute, Justin Hayward had players unmarked behind him but managed to head a cross back into an area where Bonnyrigg players could clear the danger.
1? minute later another substitute for Manly, Joseph Gibbs, saw his shot deflect off a teammate and away from danger. A few seconds later Bazi was back at his finest as he denied Hayward from point-blank range after Gibbs had played the Manly striker into such a promising position.
On 70? minutes Michael Robinson blocked another shot by Gibbs and the follow up effort from Cattanach went well over the crossbar.
The home side were not without their chances and in the 71? minute Shane Webb and Spruce combined only for Canak to just miss the cross at the near post.
Spruce was making his mark at both ends as in the 81? minute he combined well with Bazi to deny Hayward the chance to get onto a dangerous cross from the left. This was only 2? minutes before Manly should have taken the lead as a powerful cross from the ever dangerous Colin Iley, who never stopped running all match, was met by Hayward who tried to turn it the right side of the far post but due to the power of the cross he watched his effort go off target.
With Bonnyrigg desperate to get a point after all their effort, and Manly?s defence working so effectively as a unit, the final 5? minutes did not see any more effective goalmouth action, and in the end the 0-0 result seemed fair to both teams, although the away side would walk away the most disappointed having been a man up for most of the second-half and having missed a penalty.
After the match Manly coach Craig Midgley reflected upon this:
?I would have been happy with a point going to Bonnyrigg but in the end I am disappointed we did not get more from it.
?Our back four did a great job tonight, with special mention going to Sean Bowden who played so well considering how long he has been out of the game. I am chuffed at where we are as a club at present and am very proud of the boys effort tonight.?
Brian Brown was the happier to have ended with a share of the points:
?I am happy with a point considering we again played half a match a man down. ?Manly are a good side and we had to play well tonight. I was pleased with Ben Spruce tonight and young David Vrankovic must be one of the best stoppers going around at present.?
In the Grade-20 encounter, Manly United FC scored an impressive 4-0 win over Bonnyrigg White Eagles.

Captained by Ruben Zadkovich, determined attacking play from the stand-in skipper created chances for Ali Abbas and the midfielder put the White Eagles on notice, sending an early shot flashing past the post.
It was a tougher night out than previous weeks; yellow cards to Zadkovich and star recruit Tiago within 90 seconds of each other were an indication of Bonnyrigg?s strong defence. With constant pressure on their midfield the Jets found it difficult to settle.
But it was only a matter of time before Newcastle managed to adjust and shift play away from the domination through the middle and Marco Jesic struck long range to put the Jets 1?0 ahead.
Poor Bonnyrigg passing gave Newcastle more opportunities and Jacob Pepper found himself in open space to link with Abbas, but he was unable to beat the keepers challenge nearing half time.
Wholesale changes by Coach Branko Culina saw Taylor Reegan the only Jets player with prior game time emerge from the sheds and a strong build up in the middle had Newcastle back in an attacking position. Labinot Haliti added the finishing touches for a 2?0 advantage.
The White Eagles continued to pressure and managed to get around Newcastle?s defence to push into the box but a lackluster final ball was easily cleared by the Jets.
Back on the attack, Ryan Griffiths showed too much class through his one-two combination with Haliti to plant the Jets third goal of the night into the back of the net to finish off a solid fifth trial performance for Newcastle.

In the end, after a tmendous blitz in the second-half, Bonnyrigg White Eagles took all the points.
After the game their coach Brian Brown was rightly pleased with his team.
?It was very exciting in the second-half, but in the first half we probably didn?t get in behind them enough,? he said.
?We talked about it at half-time and then we changed it in the second half because Marconi, anytime and anywhe, is always a tough game.
?I am delighted to get the points because Brad Boardman was sick all week, Jamie McMaster was out, Chris Tadrosse was out and Ben Spruce was out from this afternoon, so to miss four key players and play like that, I am very happy.?
The earlier parts of the first-half certainly belonged to Bonnyrigg White Eagles with players, mo or less, camping on the Stallions side of the field.
The first al chance of the game belonged to Takuya Murayama who fid a rocket towards the Stallions net in the 17? minute, but it was asonably off target as it sailed into the grandstand posts.
Immediately afterwards Alex Canak went charging into the Stallions box but, when it appead that he had a clear run to face James Chronopoulos, the was a miraculous tackle by Andw Mailer to dispossess him of the ball.
Canak most certainly would have loved to have scod against his former club, but tackles of that quality a definitely the ones that save games.
Marconi?s ply in the 20? minute was through a Josh Sama fe-kick that sailed around the wall but ended up wide of the intended target.
The opening goal in the 35? minute was almost against the run of play when a Christopher Nunes cross from the left ached Josh Sama in the middle who made no mistake as he powerfully finished off the move for the visitors with his well timed shot.
A few minutes prior to the bak Canak tried to chip an out-coming Chronopoulos but, unfortunately for the home side, his shot was just off target.
Right at the death of the first-half Bonnyrigg could have, and probably should have, equalised.
A fe-kick proved to be too hot to handle for Chronopoulos, but first Nikola Zonjic?s close range shot was blocked by the Marconi defence befo Blake Powell fid just over the crossbar.
In the second-half the early chances belonged to Bonnyrigg. It was Bndan Gan who fid just wide of the mark with a nice shot and then, shortly afterwards, he ceived a delightful through ball from Jad Lum but, once again, the former Sydney FC player couldn?t hit the mark because of Chronopoulos? diving feet.
However, Bonnyrigg?s goal duly arrived when Bradley Boardman made no mistake in the 64? minute with his diagonal shot shortly after arriving on the field as a substitute.
Bonnyrigg went further ahead when a cross from Nathan Elasi made its way into the middle befo Gan managed to nudge the ball into the back of the net through a myriad of players.
After both goals in such a short space of time, a frustrated Marconi coach Luke Casserly was sent from the bench for his tone by fee Ryan Shepheard.
In the 86? minute Blake Powell made it the goals for the home side and the game was definitely all but over. A high bouncing ball was pounced on beautifully by Powell who made no mistake with his shot.
Luke Casserly said the following afterwards when questioned about his team:
?We we playing against a very good team away from home,? he said
?They a going to have their periods in the game when they a going to do well and it happened in the second half and goals change games.
?A fe-kick goes their way, it is played quickly, they sco and get a bit of momentum and away you go.
?We always go into every game to win, but Bonnyrigg away is not a game whe you can pencil in the points.
?We we hopeful that we would get something out of this game and for a good 60 minutes we we the or theabouts, but unfortunately we couldn?t do it for the whole game.
?It?s the next couple of games that a the must-win games if we a to get anything out of the season.
?We a not going to give up anything without a fight and we a definitely going to be in the to get as much as we can out of it.?
Meanwhile, in the Grade 20s Marconi Stallions defeated Bonnyrigg White Eagles 7-0.

The original game was postponed because of Sydney?s recent deluges, but the Tigers may have been wishing that the heavens had opened up today as well.
The heavens didn?t ? it was a spectacular Saturday afternoon ? but the ground might as well have opened for many of the home players. It would be safe to assume that they may have been looking for a cavernous opening to hide in.
Rockdale were methodical and clinical, but where they really won the game was in the detail. It was the little things that they did which set them apart from A.P.I.A. Leichhardt.
After the game Rockdale?s relatively new coach Wally Savor was understandably delighted with his team.
?To come to Lambert and score three goals against A.P.I.A. and to keep a clean sheet is a good thing,? he stated.
?I was definitely impressed with the way the defence held out, the way we kept a clean sheet and with the boys in the midfield.
?Also, to score three goals is great because I think it has been while since the club scored three goals.?
Savor, who himself was an excellent player in the old NSL and for the Socceroos, said that he was delighted to be in the coach?s seat when asked about the role given that he is only three games into the job.
?The blood pressure has probably gone up a few times and it?s certainly different to playing, but I?m enjoying the role because it?s a good bunch of players and the club is enthusiastic and it?s great to work here.?
Rockdale City Suns supporters didn?t have to wait too long for the opening goal as it duly arrived in the 3? minute. Adem Kir crossed from the right but it was poorly defended by A.P.I.A. and Jason Naidovski couldn?t believe his luck.
The ball arrived at his feet in the middle and all he had to do was put it in the back of the net. Too easy for the former Marconi player.
A very short time later the visitors should have been further ahead when somehow Marino Musumeci, against his former club, couldn?t steer the ball in from close range.
A.P.I.A. Leichhardt replied with a free-kick in the 10? minute through Robbie Younis who narrowly failed to curl the ball in as it flighted beautifully around the wall.
However, after this early action, both sides reverted to a tight midfield game for approximately the next half hour. It was football for the purist rather than for the casual observer looking for some goal-mouth action.
In the 40? minute A.P.I.A. should really have scored when a triple chance went begging.
It was all started by Younis who had his shot cleared off the line by Paul Dee. The ball then made its way to David D?Apuzzo who, too, had his attempt cleared off the line, before finally Nick Rizzo forced Ben McNamara into a spectacular diving save.
It hardly seemed possible that the ball didn?t end up in the goal after such a glorious chance.
Nevertheless, as football ebbs and flows, the play made its way down to the other end of the field where Rockdale scored.
Kir?s pass split the Tigers defence and found Paul Dee who, despite being in the twilight of his brilliant career, had enough pace and know-how to square a wonderful ball into the middle for Shay Spitz to score.
Late in the first stanza of play a cross from the right by Younis found Rizzo who volleyed first time but was thwarted by a diving save from McNamara.
In the second half there wasn?t as much goal-mouth action, but both teams certainly had their chances.
In the 58? minute a free-kick by Younis hit Marton Vass and then deflected back to Rizzo who fired over the crossbar.
Rockdale?s reply arrived midway through the second half when a Spitz cross made its way to Monie who forced Jose Bello-Amigo into a good save.
The same two players, in reverse roles, were involved again for Rockdale some minutes later but nothing much changed, with Spitz this time off target after a Monie cross.
Late in the game Rockdale scored a tremendous goal when Kir?s cross found Sash Tirovski who glanced a quality header into the back of the net. It was no more than the visitors deserved as they capped off a very sound display of football.
After the game A.P.I.A. defender Michael West was still in a positive frame of mind despite recent losses by the Tigers.
?Definitely a disappointing result today but we only have ourselves to blame,? he said very honestly.
?The first goal was an unlucky bounce for John Kelso as the ball bounced over him and went to the bloke who wasn?t first to the ball; there was not much we could have done about that one.
?For their second goal, there was some miscommunication by us and a good run by Dee who kept running and he made a goal out of it.?
When asked about what has gone wrong in recent weeks in the team, as expected, he was somewhat at a loss to single out a reason.
?It?s really hard to put your finger on and if we knew the reason, it probably wouldn?t be happening,? he said.
?Look, there is no magic watermelon juice and there?s always next week because that was a catch-up game, so technically we are not losing any ground on anyone this week,? he stated.
Meanwhile, in the Grade 20s A.P.I.A. Leichhardt Tigers and Rockdale City Suns played out a 1-1 draw.
