It was a weekend to remember for Tea Tree Gully’s Tim Oakley, snagging a career-best 9/52. With the Bulls having locked away 236 runs on the board the previous week, Oakley came out firing against Northern Districts, nearly single-handedly dismissing the visitors for 83. Enforcing the follow on, the Jets were able to regain some confidence, with Mark Cosgrove top-scoring (84), alongside Kabir Luthra (62). Unfortunately for Northern Districts, the damage had already been done and Oakley's Bulls took home the victory.
East Torrens secured the points over Adelaide University, thanks in part to a healthy 77 off the bat of Jake Lehmann. University had their fair share of contributors, captain Ben Wakim (65), Sam Kerber (48) and Will Bosisto (45) all put runs on the board to allow Uni to declare for 245, however they struggled to contain Lehmann, allowing East Torrens to post 5/154 in their second innings.
Finishing last Saturday 0/41, West Torrens picked up where they left off against Woodville. Bailey Capel (85) and Ryan Gibson (106) were the driving forces for the Eagles, as the home team chased down the 297-run total, dropping just four wickets along the way.
Sturt set a tough challenge for Adelaide on the first day of their contest posting 354. Adelaide began the second day 0/8 however that quickly became 2/26 as they struggled steady, with Blue's Corey Kelly taking 3/28 from his 12 overs. Adelaide fared slightly better in their second innings, with Chris Quinsey (45) and Josh Pengelley (44) the top-scorers.
After piling on 5d/401 last weekend, Kensington made quick work of Southern District, dismissing the home side for 167 and enforcing the follow on. Elliot Opie was key in the Brown’s success, claiming 5/34.
Prospect and Port Adelaide claimed the first draw of the season, despite the best efforts of both sides. Prospect’s Tom Cooper locked away a half-century, while Port’s Izaac Boylan took four scalps, finishing with figures of 4/95.
Glenelg had the bye, before taking on Tea Tree Gully at home next week.
