Imperials vs Wanderers
Imperials played host to Wanderers and the visitors won the toss and elected to bat first.
Stuart Bartlett and Harley Hansen opened the batting for Wanderers and pushed the score to 48 before Hansen (21) was ousted.
Steve Baltussen joined Bartlett and the pair combined for a 72-run partnership before Bartlett departed for a well-made 45.
From here Wanderers reached 194 from their 50 overs which included 34 sundries from the Imperials side.
In reply, Imperials struggled with Wanderers’ tight bowling as they crawled to 86 before being bowled out.
Daniel Leahey (12) and James Lipp (11) the only Blues batsman to make double figures while Wanderers’ Harley Hansen (3/16) shone with the ball.
Wanderers will host Monarto next week while Imperials will travel to Tailem Bend.
Mannum vs Karoonda
Mannum’s Josh Handcock and Nick Lindner opened the batting reached 46 before Handcock (21) was dismissed by Zac Bullard and when Lindner (26) fell eight runs later, the Kookaburras were 2/54.
Josh Boylan and Dwayne Krollig then combined for a 57-run partnership before Krollig (28) was dismissed.
Mannum continued to pile on the runs before being bowled out in the 49th over for 270. Josh Boylan (87) top-scored for the home side while Ben Krollig chipped-in with a fine 42.
Chasing 270 was always going to be a tough ask for an undermanned Karoonda, and the innings didn’t start well with Zakk Bullard dropping for four runs early. They scraped their way to 114 before being bowled out in the 39th over.
Joe Pratt (24) top scored for the visitors while Josh Handcock (5/19) was the main destroyer with the ball for Mannum.
