The Stingrays improved dramatically this season to finish third and now have the opportunity to play for a spot in the grand final when they take on second-placed Kensington at Ford Oval.

Jess O’Reilly has been Southern District’s leading scorer this season with 285 runs are at average of 35.63 and Scorpions squad member Kelly Armstrong is also in good form after making 87 last Sunday against Sturt.

The Browns did not name star batter Bridget Patterson, who is recovering from a leg injury.

Top side Northern Districts will host Sturt at Salisbury Oval in the other semi-final.

State players Tegan McPharlin (432 runs at 72) and Tabatha Saville (406 at 58) are the competition’s leading run scorers this season and will be key players for the Jets, who won eight of their 10 First Grade game games to secure top spot.

Sturt will regain Scorpions and Adelaide Strikers spinner Alex Price.

The games start at 10.30am.
