Inclement weather or ground bookings had previously prevented players from competing at the venue on Friday night, making the recent hit out a relief for Lithgow District Cricket Association secretary Ben Sheehan.
"We finally got a game in for the first time on a Friday night, and I look forward to many more," he said.

The Hornets fell well short in the run chase, posting just 117 runs after the break.
