Tasmania overcame travel, different playing conditions and a parochial home side to cause a serious upset in its opening clash in Perth on Monday during the national under-19 championships.
The underdogs who faced Western Australia hadn't lost a tournament opener since 2016-17 when Launceston allrounder Fletcher Seymour last captained the side.
But the Tigers shocked the hosts with a six-wicket victory that involved Greater Northern Raiders trio Lachie Newland, Ben Spinks and Sam O'Mahony.
The West Australians had moved comfortably to 1-92 in the 24th over until Lane Berry was dismissed for 34 that changed the game for Tassie, who ripped through the helpless middle-order.
Jayden Goodwin, the son of retired Zimbabwean Test star Murray Goodwin, soon after fell for a team-high 42.
