The Heathcote Double Woops took on the Commercial Marshmallows on Saturday morning in the women’s cricket game of the Pink Stumps fundraiser for the McGrath Foundation.
The netball club’s Double Woops claimed a 10-run victory against the team from the Commercial on a technicality after it was reported that one of the hotel’s players was not actually female.
The Commercial Hotel was, however, given an early advantage by the addition of a canine player who proved more adept at catching balls than the humans on the field.
At the time of going to press the dog’s gender had not been confirmed, nor had the final scores.
