South Launceston started its 2021 Greater Northern League campaign with wins in both competitions, defeating Launceston City in tight encounters at St Leonards on Wednesday night.
The Suns' women came home 4-0 victors while the men kicked off their premiership defence with a last-minute 3-2 win.
Hannah Connolly began proceedings with a bang for South, who were eager to get their season off to a strong start after marginally missing finals last season.
The dangerous goal-sneak scored in the second minute courtesy of a field goal as Hayley Johns backed her up not long after by converting a penalty corner.
South would finish the half 2-0 up before Alice Hendry and Nicole Symonds put the finishing touches on the victory in the second.
Former City Marian Kiah Williams was electric in her first game as a Sun while Emily Nunn and Courtney Pearson were adjudged City's best in a match featuring three members of the Pearson family for the first time in several years.
The men's contest started in a similar fashion, with Kurt Budgeon and James Sexton scoring in the first 11 minutes for the Suns.
But City would rally, with Beau Cornelius and new co-coach Jeremy Stebbings finding the back of the net either side of the main break to tie it up.
It would remain a stalemate until Adam Clifford sealed the deal in the final minute with a mid-air touch around keeper Jayden Pearson, who was named best on.
South Launceston coach Al McBain complimented City's performance, labelling them big improvers from last season while Budgeon and captain Brad Buchanan were his team's strongest performers.
Greater Northern League action continues on Friday and Saturday with matches on the North-West Coast.
