After a slow start to the season Kiewa have proven their on the charge after wrapping up their third consecutive win on the weekend.
Jacob Barber was the standout in the home side's win against Bethanga claiming an impressive five wicket haul, in what was his A-grade bowling debut.
Barber also backed it up with the bat, contributing 25 runs not out to Kiewa's winning total of 78.
The game also saw an unexpected spectator at the Kiewa Cricket Ground when a brown snake appeared on the field near fine leg.
Play was stopped for several minutes as the uninvited fan was ushered off the field by a snake catcher who happened to be watching.
Kiewa Captain Josh Bartel said it wasn't the first time a snake had joined them over the years, with the reptile appearing to be an omen of success for the club.
"We heard a bit of commotion coming from the sidelines and next thing we knew we saw the snake catcher running out with his bag and stick," Bartel said.
"There was an incident many years ago where Robbie Barber ran a player out because there was a snake on the pitch.
"The batsmen was too scared to come back for the second and Barber ended up running him out.
"The snakes help us out at Kiewa."
Bethanga achieved a total of 76 after electing to bat first with five wickets also coming from Kieran Salome.
After now defeating Bethanga, Barnawartha/Chiltern and Corowa, Bartel said the side is looking to rectify their slow start.
