After scoring 98 in his side’s 334 the previous Saturday, opening bowler Somerfield took 5/54 from 22 overs as Port was dismissed for 178 and then added three wickets later in the day when Port followed on and reached 4/129. He is now the competition's leading wicket-taker this season with 31.
Captain Daniel Drew’s brilliant 153 underpinned an exciting win for West Torrens, which reached 7/355 with seven balls remaining in reply to third-placed East Torrens’ 8/352. Drew was dismissed with 32 runs still required and then after Pat Fisher fell for 40, Spencer Johnson (17*) and Murphy Short (13*) finished the job.
Southern District stayed within touch of the top four by securing first innings points against Sturt, which lost 8/13 at the end of its innings to be bowled out for 123 chasing 265. Sunam Gautam took 6/25 but Jacob Dick’s unbeaten 104 led Sturt to the outright points later in the day after the Stingrays declared their second dig at 0/0 to set up a chase.
Kensington maintained its grip on fourth spot by taking maximum points against Northern District. The Jets declared on 8/77 in reply to Kensington’s 302 and then were dismissed for 165 after following on. Elliot Opie took 3/22 in the first innings and then two wickets with his first two balls in the second innings.
Tom Andrews (128) and Conor McInerney (78) steered Woodville (6/323) to a comfortable win against Glenelg (229) and then nearly added outright points, with Glenelg ending the day at 8/99.
Top side Adelaide University banked outright points after rolling Prospect for 110 in its second innings. Ben Ellis took 4/23 and Sam Kerber 3/2 as Prospect lost its last eight wickets for 17 runs to leave Uni with a small second innings target.
