Winning the toss and electing to bat first, Southern District continued to set the standard in the Twenty20 competition. Contributions from Ella Wilson (23) and Amy Peterson (21) allowed the Stingrays to build a defendable 116-run total. Sophie Roberts was the star for Northern Districts with the ball, picking up figures of 3/18 from her four overs. Amy Peterson backed up her efforts with the bat, picking up a rousing 3/9 as the visitors claimed a 16-run victory.
Following on from its maiden Twenty20 victory last round, Glenelg made it back-to-back wins, securing the points over Kensington at home. A 62-run partnership from Jacinta Goodger-Chandler and Amber Cloughessy was key to the Seahorse’s success. Kensington’s Rachel Church (37) and Sarah Lowe (28) made it a tough contest, before Goodger-Chandler claimed the dangerous wicket of the former, with the Browns falling just 4 runs short.
A half-century from West Torrens’ Paris Hall saw her side over the line against Sturt at Price Memorial Oval. Chasing a sturdy 122, Hall, alongside Emily Hinze (21) steered the Eagles to victory, notching up 126 with four balls remaining in the match.
Next up, West Torrens face Glenelg, Northern Districts take on Sturt and Kensington will have the task of trying to take down Southern District at home.
