Sophie Parkin's scarce feat with the ball has somehow overshadowed the maiden appearance of an Australian international teammate.
The former Riverside star seamer took an unsuspecting hat-trick on Sunday to steer the Greater Northern Raiders to an inaugural division-one Kookaburra Cup win against South Hobart-Sandy Bay.
Parkin first bowled Beth Schiwy off the last ball of a third over before cleaning up Hannah Johnson and Chloe Bullen both for golden ducks at the start of her next over at the NTCA No.2 Ground.
Wary Raiders huddled on the ground only to turn back to verify Parkin's milestone in a low-key celebration.
The 18-year-old had all but switched roles with new spearhead Belinda Vakarewa to capture a season-best 4-18 in a tidy four-over spell.
Vakarewa started the rut with 1-11 off five overs before the Raiders ran through the Sharks' batting order for 72.
Allrounder Meg Radford closed the innings with 3-22 in her sixth over, picking up gun Yorkshire signing Hollie Armitage for 46 off 50 balls.
The Sharks opener nearly carried the bat after hitting three fours and two sixes to push her side up from 8-47 at one stage until Vakarewa took a superb diving catch.
"I think we started really well with the ball, putting it in the right areas to challenge for wickets and to challenge the batters," Raiders captain Sam Cotton said.
"It probably helped us well with the start that we got and Sophie getting a hat-trick in the middle really did help."
The bowling performance was a world away from the Raiders' debut amid the top tier of five Cricket Tasmania teams against Kingborough.

The Raiders in that game failed to collect a wicket and conceded their 121 inside 16 overs for a 10-wicket loss.
The intensity had lifted 28 days on with six of Sharks' dismissals cleaned bowled.
"I think it was just better lines this week," Cotton said.
"The girls were a bit wayward first-up and it was hard to set a field in the game.
"This time they kept it just outside off or on the stumps and that's easier to set a field, defend and build pressure."
The run chase had looked shaky initially, slipping to 3-29 inside the 10th over.
The Raiders, who were fielding their strongest batting line-up since debuting in October, passed the target three wickets down in 19.5 balls - five balls less than the Sharks occupied the crease.
Emma Manix-Geeves, who had been lured back from New Town to the keeper's hometown for the 40-over fixtures, worked 24 off 33 balls around the ground.
The Tasmanian Tigers regular put together an unbroken 43-run stand with Raiders' first-gamer Zoe Lowry, who also finished with an unbeaten 24 but off 38 balls.
Cotton said the inclusions of Manix-Geeves, Lowry and Vakarewa - the latter two this game - made a big difference.
"The way that the Kookaburra Cup is working with pulling of all good players and making five really good teams, it really helps because you're going to be pushed to that next level and make that next step up," she said.
