Sturt captain Brad Davis continued his run spree with an unbeaten 85 - a day after his second consecutive First Grade century – to steer his side past Glenelg’s 9/234 from 50 overs at Gliderol Stadium.
After Connor Dudley made a bright start with 37 from 27 balls, Davis and Thomas Kelly added 139 runs for the third wicket and the side then secured its spot in the final with five wickets and 26 balls to spare.
Earlier, Chadd Sayers made a successful return from knee surgery by top scoring for Glenelg with 77 and then taking 3/39 from his 10 overs. Josh Roach made an unbeaten 41 and Sturt’s Brinder Phagura took 4/42.
Kensington’s 9/269 was enough to overcome Tea Tree Gully, which was bowled out for 190 at Parkinson Oval.
Jake Brown (44), Paul Allegretto (40), Joshua Doyle (51), Rob White (32) and Samuel Williams (56) all contributed for the Browns and then Doyle (3/27) and Elliot Opie (4/43) stopped Tea Tree Gully from building momentum in its chase. Tim Davey top scored with 48 and Brad Evans 40 after opener Matt Weaver hit 30 from 20 balls.
The final will be played at Karen Rolton Oval on 17 February. Kensington’s last One-Day premiership was in 2009-10 and Sturt has not won the title since 2007-08.
