Matthew Camilleri helped Central Coast into a commanding position with a clinical 3-0 victory over Mitch Austin.
Austin dominated the opening 40 minutes but was made to pay for his profligacy, with Camilleri burying a pair of sucker-punches late in the first half.
And it was 3-0 within five minutes of the restart as the Mariner rounded out a professional performance.
PS4: Mouad 'MuadZwed' Zwed 4-3 Kiran 'KyrenFIFA' Gupta
Mouad Zwed inflicted a first defeat on Kiran Gupta in a stunning 4-3 victory highlighted by a string of fine finishes.
Zwed immediately pulled back the first of a three-goal deficit with a sublime finesse effort from the edge of the area that curled in off the upright.
Gupta appeared rattled as he saw a contentious penalty saved, but the disappointment didn't last long with scores levelled by half-time.
The entertainment took on explosive new life from there with both players on target twice in a see-sawing four-goal sequence, before an exquisite late volley from Zwed confirmed the end of Gupta's unbeaten record.
Round three of the #E-League kicks off against Perth next Thursday night. All the action starts at 8pm online at FOX Sports Australia and on Twitch.
