Only a couple of weeks ago Waratahs coach Matt Wilson was praising Bianca Mulligan's performance in goal.
On Sunday the teenager metamorphosedinto a goal scoring hero, conjuring a golden extra-time strike to secure a one goal minor semi-final win over defending champions South United.
Mulligan's goal was the only of what was a real arm-wrestle, and came with around 30 seconds remaining in the second half of the first period of extra-time from what Wilson described as "a nice little off the corner post push-in".
It was one of the rare times they worked the ball around in the circle, their impatience almost costing them.
"It was a funny sort of game," Wilson said.
"We had a lot of shots on goal but just weren't patient enough in the circle."
"Their keeper was saving pretty much any shot from top of the circle and making it look easy. We weren't patient enough there to work the ball around rather than go direct."
He though commended the way they dug in, especially after having two players withdraw on Sunday morning - one with illness and one with injury.
"It was a very big team effort to play that extra 20 minutes," he said.
He said both sides had their opportunities during regulation time, Souths missing a stroke at one stage, but thought Waratahs probably had the better of them.
Souths had taken the advantage into the game having beaten Waratahs 2-nil in the final round.
Waratahs were missing five of their first graders and had a very young front line, and Wilson was quick to note that was a big contributor to the turnaround on Sunday.
"We couldn't hold the ball up front last week," he said.
"Whereas we were able to push likes of Bianca Pieper and Nicole Reid-Smith forward."
"When you have players of that calibre in your front three, it makes a bit of a difference."
"Just being able to hold the ball up front so you can build attacking pressure makes a big difference."
That was for Wilson one of the most encouraging things - being able to sustain a bit of attacking pressure.
"Against Services next week that's what we're going to be able to do," he said.
