Stafanie Taylor claimed stunning figures of 4-5 as Western Storm beat Loughborough Lightning by five wickets to get their Kia Super League campaign back on track.
Taylor, the top wicket-taker and run-scorer during the inaugural KSL in 2016, took three wickets in her opening over and bowled 20 dot deliveries out of 24 as Lightning were limited to 108-9 at Taunton.
The West Indies all-rounder had run out Ellyse Perry (25) from two overs earlier and her burst with the ball, in which she trapped Lightning skipper Georgia Elwiss lbw for one, saw the visitors crumble from a promising 54-1.
Taylor then scored 34 and skipper Heather Knight hit 24 as Storm rebounded from their nine-wicket thrashing to defending champions Southern Vipers at The Ageas Bowl in the tournament opener on Thursday.
Storm lost 3-36 to slip to slip to 77-4 in the 16th over but eventually triumphed with five balls to spare, Sophie Luff (18no) striking the winning run after Taylor fell late in the chase to an excellent catch from Paige Scholfield at long-on.
WHAT THEY SAID
Player of the Match - Stafanie Taylor (Western Storm)
"I do well at this ground so we should move all the games here! I put the ball in the right areas, while Luffy and I batted really well together. We didn't play well in the last game but to see us fight so well in this one was fantastic."
Heather Knight (Western Storm captain)
"It was really nice to get over the line and register our first win - I really wanted a response and the bowlers gave us exactly that. Stafanie was outstanding. I keep calling her 'Superstar' as she loves playing in front of people and showing what she can do."
Georgia Elwiss (Loughborough Lightning captain)
"I don't think it takes a genius to work out where it went wrong - if you lose three wickets in one over it really changes the game. We did well to get 108 from there but it was never going to be enough to win the game."
WHAT NEXT FOR BOTH SIDES?
Loughborough host Vipers at Derby on Tuesday (2pm, Sky Sports Cricket), with Storm back in action a week on Sunday (August 20), when they travel to York to take on Yorkshire Diamonds.
NEXT ON SKY SPORTS..
