Kate Kelly's point, with 66 minutes on the clock, stole victory for Wexford against a shattered Tipperary in the All Ireland Senior Camogie Championship quarter-final at Walsh Park on Saturday afternoon.
Wexford 2-11 Tipperary 0-16
The St Ibar's star hauled in Louise O'Leary's sideline cut, turn close to the right touchline and nailed her shot under intense pressure to send Wexford through to a semi-final meeting with Cork in two weeks time.
Not for the first time this season, Wexford looked out of sorts, trailing 0-10 to 0-5 at the interval.
Despite a superb Una Leacy goal, things didn't look much better when Mags D'Arcy saved Mairéad Teehan rocket over to bar to leave seven between the sides with thirteen minutes remaining (0-16 to 1-6).
However, things slowly started to change as Tipperary legs tired. Una Leacy tipped Shelley Kehoe's pass into Emma Walsh's path and the emerging Glynn-Barntown talent pulled past Sabrina Larkin to the Premier net.
Then it was a race against the clock as Wexford suddenly sprang to life. They drew level when Katrina Parrock pointed two minutes into added time and wrap up a scarcely believable victory with Kelly's score.
