A second half-stunner by the Tathra Sea Eagles closed out what looked like a one-sided game against the Bay Tigers on Sunday.
Dropped balls by Tathra and cheeky offloads on the part of the Tigers had the Bay looking like a sure bet just minutes before half-time at the Tathra Beach Country Club on Sunday.
The hosts had looked capable of scoring even from the outset, but were struggling to complete their sets to trail 26-16.
However, the club hit their strides late in the first half and carried that momentum into the second piece to press on for a 46-32 win over the visitors.
By 20 minutes into the first half the visitors were up 20-6, but a pair of Declan Bower-Scott tries late in the piece reeled the Tigers in to striking range.
Then in the second half, the Sea Eagles had settled into their sets and the club's set pieces began to play with the results singing on the scoreboard.
A Mitch Carter double in the second half, with a Jesse Hoyland-Meaker try off the wing established the scene.
Seventeen minutes in, Declan cleaned up his hat-trick for the day in a best-on-ground display.
A Jesse Wighton try for the Bay had levelled things up with 20 to go, but the Eagles were hitting their straps and Callum Bower-Scott joined the scorers and backed up to convert his own.
Earlier the Tigers had beaten the She-Eagles 20-16, scoring a breakaway try with just two minutes left to play after trailing 16-14.
In other matches, the Bega Roosters have handed the Bombala Blue Heelers their biggest loss in two seasons.
The first grade Roosters scored a 48-10 win over the visiting Heelers in a game where captain-coach Scott Barton shone with a treble at the Bega Recreation Ground.
Barton opened the account for the Roosters before going on to post a further two tries in the 21st and 56th minutes of play.
John Parbery also had a blinder from the wing, scoring a double as the Roosters hammered the visitors.
Giving the Roosters even more reason to celebrate was a win in league-tag over the previously undefeated High Heelers.
After trailing 8-0 at the break, it was a Jacinta Dummett try before sister Aleesha scored a pair that sparked the win for the Bega Chicks 16-12.
The Roosters rounded out the scorecard with an 18-4 win in the reserve grade fixture.
Ricky Stapleton and James Grant tries in the first half laid the platform, while Bega's defence again proved rock solid with a clean sheet in the first half.
Lee Fuller and Bombala's Corey Patton scored in the second half.
