State league two side Westgate has knocked Ballarat City out of the FFA Cup.
Westgate defeated the Ballarat City's NPL2 line-up 2-0 at Morshead Park on Wednesday evening.
The visors laid the platform for the victory early in the contest by scoring a goal with a well executed corner.
After entering the half time break down 1-0, Westgate put the game out of reach of Ballarat City by scoring a second major during injury time.
Ballarat City manager James Robinson said Westgate were "giant killers" on the night and delivered a worthy winning performance.
"Everybody was really shattered after the game," he said.
"It wasn't a lack of endeavor, the attitudes were fantastic from our players, but I think we've accepted we weren't good enough and we'll take it on the chin."
Although disappointed with the loss, Robinson expressed optimism going forward saying the game delivered valuable experience to young players, including Bailey Burgess who made his second start after scoring on debut last weekend
"Each time we come on the field its another experience which keeps adding value to our side," he said.
Robinson went on to highlight a lesson to be taken away from the loss.
"You always respect your opposition, no matter what level they're at, because in any club competition its a matter of one game and if you show up and perform on the evening you take the spoils in it."
Ballarat City will enjoy a break over Easter before licking their wounds ahead of their NPL2 match-up with the Springvale White Eagles on April 27.
