Captain Cam Valente took 7/24 as Adelaide dismissed Southern District for only 52 at Glandore Oval and his team finished the first day with outright points on the agenda for this Saturday.
Ben Pengelley, who claimed the other three wickets, then topscored for Adelaide with 65 as it raced to 209, Lewis Hatchett snaring 7/80 from 15 overs. Batting a second time, the Stingrays were 2/14 but reached 2/119 at stumps, still needing another 38 runs to make Adelaide bat a second time.
Max Parker’s 108 helped Sturt recover from a top-order collapse to reach 258 and then its bowlers went to work, reducing Northern Districts to 5/28 at stumps. Daniel Clarke has taken 3/9 from seven overs and 15-year-old debutant Harrison Lemmey (2/17) picked up two wickets in his first over.
Prospect has given itself a chance of securing its first win of the season by amassing 9/414 against West Torrens. Izaac Boylan was the standout with 166 and Josh Dascombe took 5/80 from 27 overs.
Joe Gatting’s unbeaten 132 – his third century this season – and 85 from Darren Ironside lifted Tea Tree Gully to 5/349 against Adelaide University.
Glenelg’s 8/339 against East Torrens was built on Ben Bullimore’s 104 and he shared a 172-run second wicket partnership with Danny Irvine (75).
Kensington is in control of its clash with Port Adelaide after Daniel Worrall (5/24 from 16.5 overs) and Lloyd Pope (4/57 off 25 overs) restricted the home side to 185. The Browns were 0/94 at stumps.
Woodville has the bye.
