Two wins in two days has changed the complexion of Hoppers Crossing’s season in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association.

The Cats entered the weekend winless but climbed into the top six on the back of their double header weekend swoop.

Hoppers Crossing got that winning feeling for the first time on Saturday when it emerged victorious by 37 runs over Taylors Lakes on the road at Lionheart Reserve.

The stars of the show for the Cats were Navrojeep Virk and Luke Goegan, who made the bulk of the Cats total of 8-220.

Virk was scintillating with 101 off 116 balls, while Goegan produced 71 off 89.
