BLOCKBUSTER new signing Larissa Crummer has starred for Capalaba FC as they edged out Moreton Bay United in a seven-goal thriller on Friday night.
Announced just hours before kick-off at Wolter Park, Crummer's injury time strike sealed the Bulldogs' second win in just four days in the National Premier Leagues.
Crummer, 25, is a Matildas World Cup and Olympic Games representative, and former W-League Golden Boot winner, and joins the Bulldogs after injury limited her international contributions in recent years.
Despite conceding the opening goal, Archie Kahondo's side appeared to be cruising at half-time against the Jets on the back of a three-goal flurry from Steph Latham, Whitney Knight and Crummer.

The Jets threatened to steal a point on the back of Lanni McDougall's second half double, before Crummer combined with fellow former Matildas' rep Amy Chapman to claim the win at the death.
The win moves the Bulldogs to sixth on the league table, while still holding a game in hand on several of their rivals.
They will look to secure a season's best third straight win next weekend when they host the Queensland Academy of Sport.
On Saturday, Capalaba FC's FFA Cup dreams will wait for another season after the club was eliminated from the knock-out competition on the Gold Coast.
Fielding a youthful side, the Bulldogs were no match for hosts Surfers Paradise Apollo as they fell to a 4-1 defeat at Lex Bell Oval.
Apollo led from start to finish after Daniel Saric opened accounts inside the opening minute on his way to a brace.
Teddy Watson and Brad Scott also chimed in for the hosts, before Bulldogs fullback Russell Parker gave his side their only consolation late in the contest.
Managing a hectic schedule of catch-up games in recent weeks, the Bulldogs rested several key players for the clash with one eye to the remainder of their league campaign.
David Mcvoy's side return to action next weekend when they host traditional rivals Logan Lightning on Saturday night.
