The Magpies have recruited former Sydney Thunder player Charlotte Anneveld, who opened the batting and smashed an unbeaten 51, while captain Anureet Kaur contributed with 28.
A half-century from new Under 18 Adelaide Strikers Rookie Emma de Broughe (56 not out) was not enough to get Sturt across the line, with Kensington’s Eliza Doddridge (37 off 28 balls) doing the bulk of her side’s damage with the bat.
The Browns have moved one win clear on the ladder and now sit comfortably in first place, while West Torrens have also managed to leapfrog Sturt in the standings, moving into second.
Northern Districts’ Emma Faint took an incredible 5/17 off her four overs, although the Jets lacked some batting power, with skipper Tegan McPharlin absent with WBBL duties.
Ellie Falconer’s 42 off 38 balls was the highlight for West Torrens, who nabbed the win over the Jets by just two runs.
