Queensland edged South Australia in a thrilling super over in the women's Twenty20 at Allan Border Field on Friday.
After both sides finished at 8-90 from their 20 overs, the Fire were set eight runs to win in the super over.
And they did it with three balls to spare as they celebrated a dramatic victory.
What made the win so remarkable was the fact Queensland were 7-28 at one stage of their first innings.
Jodie Fields (37) saw a stream of partners depart as Megan Schutt (3-9 off four overs) and Stephanie Morrison (3-10 off four) ripped through the top order for the Scorpions.
Fields and Jemma Barsby (31) added 45 runs for the eighth wicket and they stabilised things enough to give them a competitive score to defend.
With plenty of time to achieve their required target, Scorpions batswomen Beth Morgan (38), Lauren Ebsary (21) and Tegan McPharlin (15) made a steady start.
The wicket of McPharlin - run out by Courtney Hill - triggered a collapse of 6-34 though, as the economical Fire kept themselves in the game.
Kirsten Pike (2-15 off four) was the pick of the Queensland bowlers and they almost did enough to win in normal time.
The Scorpions needed three runs from the final delivery to force a tie but a Grace Harris wide was followed by a Tahlia McGrath pull which yielded two runs.
That saw the scores tied and a super over forced, from which the Scorpions scored seven runs and lost a wicket.
Schutt bowled the super over for South Australia but delivered two wides before Harris hit a four and a three in successive deliveries to give the Fire an impressive triumph.
