Western Fury pipped Tasmanian Roar in a Women's National Cricket League Twenty 20 match that went down to the wire at the WACA Ground on Sunday.
Chasing 126 for victory, the Fury needed one run from the last ball of the match and Nicky Shaw was the hero, nudging a leg bye through backward square of fast bowler Anita Silver to hand the home side the points.
The Roar opted to bat first and steadily built a competitive score of 5-125 after 20 overs.
Wicket-keeper/batter Tayla Kafoa, Corinne Hall and opener Emma Thompson shared topscore honours with 25 each while five the Fury had individual wicket-takers.
Player of the match Jenny Wallace gave the West Australians the ideal start to the chase with superb half century.
The veteran opener clubbed 55 from 61 balls including six fours and was well supported by skipper Nicole Bolton (29 from 27) and Suzannah Bates (27 off 21).
The Fury were cruising during the 17th over at 1-108 but when Roar speedster Erin Burns (1-14 from four overs) snared the vital wicket of Wallace, the Tasmanians had dragged themselves back into the match.
The Fury needed eight runs from the final two overs, a task made harder when Bates and Bolton were both run out.
But Shaw (2 from 3) and fellow not out batter Chloe Piparo (4 from 9) held their nerve to deliver Western Fury a seven-wicket victory.
The result capped a brilliant weekend for Western Fury, who won Friday's first match by 43 runs, and Saturday in the 50-over game by 132 runs via the Duckworth/Lewis method.
The Roar, who finished with just the one win in each competition last year, next play SA Scorpions in Adelaide on November 9.
Western Fury clash with defending champions Vic Spirit in Melbourne on October 26.
