The former Western Sydney Wanderers FC and Perth Gloary attacker swept home his side’s third goal in their comfortable 3-1 victory at home to Hapoel Kfar Saba.
Playing up front, Rukavytsya was in the right place at the right time to tap in at the far post after a swift counter attack.
Elsewhere, Aziz Behich had success with Bursaspor in the Turkish Super League, playing a full game in their 2-0 home win over Eskişehirspor.
And Olyroo Josh Brillante was substituted at half-time as his Como side registered a solid 2-0 win on the road against Novara in Serie B.
