Despite the threat of rain at the Karen Rolton Oval precinct, a full 50-over match was played, with the Statewide Super SA Scorpions winning the toss and electing to bowl.

Tasmania got off to a slow start, before Stacey Oates (2/18) struck to remove Meg Phillips for seven.

Sasha Moloney (40) top-scored for the Tigers as part of an impressive 94-run partnership for the third wicket, but was eventually dismissed by Sam Betts (3/27).

Darcie Brown, Eliza Doddridge, Brooke Harris and Price contributed with a wicket each, restricting Tasmania to 9/189.

The Scorpions had a shaky start with the bat and were in trouble at 3/19, however Annie O’Neil's quick, boundary-riddled 21, acted to boost the run-rate for South Australia.

De Broughe’s patient 51 from 84 balls, combined with Price’s run-a-ball 60, continued the momentum, pushing the Scorps into winning territory.

The home side continued to bat beyond the required total, in order to maximise pre-season game-time, eventually reaching 209.

The Scorpions open their WNCL campaign on 22 September at Karen Rolton Oval.
