HER own coach described her performance as "phenomenal" - the opposition coach described her as "the difference" between the two teams".
So there was no disputing Amy Jackman's best-on--court medal win in Saturday's LVFNL A-grade netball grand final.
The 22-year-old goal keeper has enjoyed a remarkable first season at Newbridge since crossing from BFNL club Eaglehawk.
Jackman placed second behind Mitiamo goal attack Laura Hicks in the league best and fairest.
Now she's added not only a best-on-court medal, but a premiership one as well.
Until Saturday, Jackman - by her own admission - had played in few finals matches.
Not that anyone would have been able to tell as she consistently repelled the Superoos’ advances forward and set up opportunities for her midcourt teammates.
"I think the last (final), I was sitting on the bench for Eaglehawk A-grade and I nearly went on, but I didn't," she said.
"And now this (a premiership)."
Leaving aside the win, Jackman was fortunate for the grand final experience.
"It was very tough, very challenging - Laura Hicks was on her game," she said.
"It's very hard to stop her when she's on."
Jackman has been a linchpin in a Maroons' defence that conceded the fewest points (26) per game this season, alongside fellow recruit Megan Jennings and Gemma Steel.
Maroons coach Carmen Shevlin said her goal keeper had been "amazing" against Mitiamo, in much the same vein as she had been all season.
"She can read the play so well - I would love to see what her intercept count was if anyone kept it," she said.
"She got her rejection, she aims to get one a game and got that in the first quarter.
"When she did we knew we were in for a good (game)."
Despite the Maroons’ win, there was no guarantee Jackman, or any of her premiership teammates, would be awarded best-on-court.
Calivil United's Erin Boyd (B-grade) and Kellie Ansett (C-grade) achieved the feat earlier on grand final day in teams that fell short of victory.
But rival coach Jenny Clohesy said Jackman had "absolutely deserved" her medal.
"She put the pressure on our our goalers and we took a long while to get around that," she said.
"She was probably the difference."
