Reed thirds put their promotion push back on track with a seven-wicket victory at Southgate Adelaide thirds.

The visitors' youthful opening attack of Mitchell Cooper (10-2-14-0) and Kallum Ward (7-2-15-0) kept the Southgate runs down to a minimum.

However, it needed a stunning one-handed catch from Maseeh Naeem to dismiss Asmore, following Marcus Baker's (8-2-25-2) testing delivery.

The wily Ian Roberts (12-8-2-2) then got in on the act, bowling both Hanif and Arnold and Southgate were suddenly struggling at 40 for 3.

Things then got even worse for the home side as Baker took his second wicket, trapping Gilbert lbw.

Ben Bowles then set about ripping through the Southgate middle order with his off breaks, and ended with figures of 12-4-31-4, to leave Southgate Adelaide nine down for 103 in their allotted 47 overs.

In reply Tom Greaves and Baker put on 58 before Baker went for 16.

Greaves was joined by Matt Bowles, and hit a fine 53, with Bowles (13 not out) steering Reed home.
