Laura Wright and Sara Hungerford powered the ACT Meteors to an eight-wicket victory over the SA Scorpions in the Women's National Cricket League on Saturday.
South Australia won the toss and elected to bat, reaching 9-172 from their 50 overs.
Beth Morgan top-scored with 60 batting at number four, and opener Alex Price made 19, but they were the only meaningful returns from the Scorpions' specialists.
Price's fellow opener Tegan McPharlin went for a duck, bowled by Sian Ruck, while number three Lauren Ebsary was out for five.
The middle order fared little better, Tahlia McGrath (seven) and Rhianna Peate (two) went cheaply, as did Alicia Dean and Bridget Patterson (both one).
The tail offered some resistance, as Amanda Wellington (21) and Megan Schutt (27), batting at nine and ten respectively, added some respectability to the Scorpions' total.
Rhiannon Dick (3-27) led the wicket-tackers for the Meteors, accounting for McGrath, Peate and Patterson, while Charlotte Anneveld and Kate Owen had two scalps apiece.
ACT had little trouble chasing down the target, with opener Wright racing to 78 runs from 95 balls, registering nine fours in the process.
Fellow opener Asha Smith was run out by Wellington for 13, but third drop Hungerford proved damaging upon her arrival at the crease, reaching 61 from 75 deliveries.
The 136-run stand for the third wicket between Wright and Hungerford was ultimately ended when the former was run out by Ebsary.
But the damage was already, and Kris Britt added five runs alongside Hungerford as the Meteors eased over the finish line.
The two teams meet again on Sunday in Twenty20 action.
