Was the side takedown too delayed?

Waza-ari or no score? There is no question that blue was rolled onto her back. There is also no dispute that it was a roll rather than a throw. So, at most it'd be a waza-ari and not an ippon. But the question is, was White's transition from drop seoi-nage into a side takedown too delayed for it to be considered a score? Or was it one continuous movement and thus merited the waza-ari score?
