It was a finish fitting of a top-of-the-table clash. Although the Goulburn Bulldogs might disagree.
A cross-field Michael Brophy kick to the corner and a classy finish from Connor Massen in the dying minutes sent the Tuggeranong Bushrangers back to the top of the Canberra Raiders Cup.
Massen's try gave the visitors a 24-20 win over the Bulldogs at Goulburn on Sunday, after the home side had led by two.
While the Bushrangers are one point clear on top on 17 points, with the Queanbeyan Blues and Woden Valley Rams breathing down their necks, Goulburn have slipped to fourth on 14.
"Connor Massen scored in the corner. I think there was about a minute to go," Bushrangers hooker Josh Mitchell said.
"Brophy had a cross-field kick and Connor did what he had to do, contested for the ball.
"He flew to the corner, jumped up, got it and stepped inside and beat one or two and put the ball down."
Mitchell then slotted the conversion to double the margin.
Anyone who saw Mitchell's swollen face last weekend would've been shocked to see him playing on Sunday.
He couldn't finish Tuggeranong's loss to West Belconnon last weekend, coming off with a suspected fractured eye socket.
But a trip to the doctor cleared him of any serious damage.
Mitchell said the loss to the Warriors had been the "kick up the bum" they needed after a lacklustre month.
"I went to the doctors Sunday. I was in there for about 4-5 hours waiting on scans and whatnot," he said.
"They said there was no break or anything in the eye socket so I was all sweet.
"I pulled up well after training so thought I'd chuck the boots on for this weekend."
