BORDERS/Apsley again proved their giant-killing abilities, while Demons moved back to the top of the ladder in Naracoorte cricket on Saturday.
Borders had won only two games this season but one of those wins was against Lucindale in the Twenty20 round.
They were good with bat and ball against the finals-bound Roos at LUCINDALE.
The home side batted first and were in immediate trouble, with Bernie Kealy (3/19) and Ben Thring (3/9) running through the top order.
Gerard McGrath (44) was the only batsman to make double figures as Ollie Close (1/14) and fill-in Daniel Justin - loaned from Lucindale - also chipped in to restrict the home team.
At 9/77, the last pair of McGrath and Brock Kelsh (6no) added 26 before Nick Thring had McGrath caught by another Lucindale loan player, Sam Teakle, ending the innings on 103.
In reply, Borders chased down the winning target like a calm and confident side.
All of the top four got a start, with Matt Close (17) and Justin (25) adding 35 for the first wicket and Nick Thring (34no) and Ben Thring (23no) finishing off the job. Borders made the winning runs from 26 overs.
In the top-of-the-table clash at WORTLEY OVAL, Demons batted first and set up a great run chase by pouring on the runs.
Michael Cappelluti (52) and Sam Henschke (19) set the platform with a 47-run opening stand, then Nathan Smith (67) in his first game for the season and Brodie Borg (28) kept the runs coming as the Demons notched an imposing score of 4/201.
Brodie Foster was the outstanding bowler with 3/27 and Justin Redding bowled tightly for 1/19 from seven.
In reply, Townies lost a wicket in the first over and continued to lose wickets regularly.
Brendon Emms made a quickfire 20, but Paul Schroder was the only other batsman able to make a decent contribution as Henschke (2/22) and Cappelluti (2/34) made the early inroads and then Anthony Munro (3/9) wiped out the middle order.
Townies struggled throughout to be bowled out for 108 - 93 runs short of their stablemates.
At IB EDWARDS OVAL, Devils batted first and started well with a sprightly opening stand of 37. But after the dismissal of Troy Johnson for an innings high 30, wickets fell regularly and only Aaron Lomman (22), Steve Anderson (19) and Jamie Dyer (16) were able to trouble the scorers too much.
Michael Pannell (3/11) and Stuart Shepherd (2/21) were the multiple wicket-takers.
Kyby lost two early wickets in the run chase, but Pannell (66no) in his first game of the season and Shepherd (43) put on 89 runs in quick time to see their team easily over the line after 21 overs.
This weekend is a busy one for cricketers, with Saturday's round of 40-over matches seeing Kyby host Townies, Demons hosting Lucindale at Wortley Oval and Borders hosting Devils at Frances.
On Sunday, Naracoorte will take a team to Robe for a T20 round robin tournament against Millicent and Tatiara association teams.
Demons 33 points, 4.85 run rate; Townies 27, 5.41; Kyby 27, 5.01; Lucindale 27, 4.66; Borders 12, 2.86; Devils 6, 3.53.
