Southern District hosted Northern Districts at Bice Oval to begin proceedings, with the home side claiming a 23-run victory after winning the toss and electing to bat first. Shania McKinnon got the job done with the blade, the opener knocking up 66 to get her side to 9/163 from 50 overs. In response, the visitors managed just 140, with Hannah Perry and Kelly Armstrong collecting three wickets apiece to secure the win for Southern District.
At ACH Group Stadium, Glenelg welcomed West Torrens to the Bay, with the visitors winning the toss and choosing to weild the willow from the outset. Tahlia McGrath was spectacular for West Torrens, putting on 98 from 138 deliveries in a total of 8/179. Jacinta Goodger-Chandler turned it on with the ball, claiming 3/36 from 10 overs.
Glenelg didn’t blink in chasing down the total, bringing up the winning runs with 23 deliveries in reserve. Courtney Webb (72) and Anesu Mushangwe (41*) combined for a 94-run partnership to steer Glenelg to victory despite a wonderful spell of 3/55 from Amanda-Jade Wellington.
Sturt travelled to Kensington for the final fixture of the day in what would turn into an extremely one-sided affair. Winning the toss and donning the pads, Sturt were irresistible all day long. An even performance with the bat, including 56 from Emma de Broughe and 58* to Rhianna Peate, saw the visitors pile on 6/250, a total Kensington would not be able to get close to.
Megan Schutt was at her elite best with the ball, bowling a remarkable five maidens on her way to figures of 4/15 from 10 overs. The devastating spell carved through the home side’s batting order, seeing them skittled for just 61 in 28.5 overs.
Round Seven of the Statewide Super Women’s First Grade will see West Torrens hosting Southern District, Northern Districts welcoming Sturt to their turf and Southern District taking on Glenelg at home, with all fixtures set for 21 February.
