PAT Langlois has already scored a match-winner on the national FFA Cup stage.
But on Wednesday night, his job could be to stop another teenage product of the Northern NSW NPL from doing the same.
Langlois, 19, came off the bench to score in extra-time for the Jets in a 3-2 win over Melbourne Victory in the round of 32. It set up a clash at Edgeworth, who defeated Darwin Olympic 3-0 on the road.
"I'm still buzzing," Langlois said of the goal.
"It was a great experience and a really good night.
"I was going on at left wing, which I haven't really played too often and as I walked on [coach] Ernie [Merrick] asked me 'are you going to score?' And I said 'yes, I'm going to score the winner'.
"When I came back into the change rooms it was all fun and games, I said 'yeah, I told you so'."
Langlois, who played at Broadmeadow before joining the Jets, is likely take up a defensive role against the Eagles because of injuries to centre-backs Nigel Boogaard, Nikolai Topor-Stanley and Lachlan Jackson. He and Johnny Koutroumbis played in central defence in a 2-0 trial win over Hamilton last week.
"I'm comfortable at the back and it's where I've been playing." he said. "If I can do a job there, I'm happy to do that.
"It's a great opportunity and I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully I can take it and just make sure I do a job for the boys who are out."
The A-League scholarship player could face a stark contrast in his opposing numbers on Wednesday night.
Former A-League golden boot Daniel McBreen, who works as a junior coach and community officer with the Jets, is playing one of his last competitive matches with Edgeworth at age 42.
"If I'm playing against Pat Langlois, he's going to have a torrid night. He might regret saying he likes playing against me," McBreen laughed on Monday after Langlois said: "It will always be good to come up against Macca, I'll always enjoy that."
Another Eagles striker is 16-year-old Archie Finn, who McBreen believes could "do some damage" against the Jets.
"He's a good player, he's got very good attributes and he's done well since he's been training in the first team," McBreen said.
"So hopefully he can show that and he can get calm, get into the game and do what he does, because all things considered, and if things go well, I think this guy could really do some damage and have a good career."
Finn, who hasn't been in the Jets system, was keen to show them his potential.
"I'd be happy to get there," Finn said. "But Edgeworth's a pretty good club and I'm happy to be there and playing."
Kick-off at Jack McLaughlan Oval is 7.30pm.
Langlois has more experience against Edgeworth, the four-time defending NNSW NPL premiers, than most of his teammates given his time in the competition with the Jets Youth side.
And he wasn't expecting an easy time.
"It will be a really good game," Langlois said.
"They've been a very dominant side in the NPL for a while now and everytime we play them it's been a very tough game."
Edgeworth back up on Sunday against Lambton Jaffas in the final round of NPL. The second-placed Eagles need to win and have Maitland lose to or draw with the Jets Youth side to leapfrog them and claim a record 13th top-division premiership.
McBreen was hoping for a helping hand from Jets boss Lawrie McKinna, who also coaches the youth team.
"I said to the Lawrie this morning in the office that maybe we can do a favour," McBreen said.
"Maybe if I miss a chance on Wednesday and it gets the first team through, and if your Jets boys beat Maitland on the weekend for Edgy, maybe that could even out. That would be good," he smiled.
"We need Maitland to slip up but we don't think they will."
