Caroline Springs celebrated its first win in the Cricket Victoria Women’s Community Cricket competition.
Fielding a side for the first time this season, the Falcons tasted success on Sunday in the first of two T20 matches in the north west B competition.
Captain Carol Blackman said it was a special moment of the club. She said they had been confident going into the game against Greenvale Kangaroos.
Blackman unfortunately missed the match due to other commitments.
“For us this season has been about participation and having some fun,” she said.
“It was even stevens between both teams and we were confident that we could match it with them and get the win.
“I was torn about not playing… I told them during the week they needed to FaceTime me after the game, as I wanted to be apart of it.
“They were true to their word. I’m really proud of the junior girls who have stepped up and held their own.”
The Kangaroos batted first and made 1-84 from its overs.
One of the Falcons young stars, Amelia Sevoir was the pick of the bowlers taking 1-8 off four overs.
The game went down to the wire with the Falcons hitting the winning runs with three balls to spare.
The Falcons finished 3-86.
It was another young star that got the job done with the bat, with Kyah Marum finishing 27 not out.
In the Falcons second game on Sunday, they lost to Coburg 2.
Coburg made 0-85, with the Falcons falling just short, finishing 9-81.
Sevior finished 46 not out coming in at number eight.
Blackman said she had been astounded by the interest and success of the side so far, with the club having to turn away players having already filled the squad.
She said they decided to put in a side to give their junior players a competition to play in, due to the girls competition not fitting their schedule.
“We wanted to keep the juniors girls in the sport and at the club,” she said.
“We just thought lets get a women’s team together. We started with about five women and then got some mum’s who were bringing their sons to training.
“We ended up with 15 players. We’ve got five junior girls and 10 senior women.”
