Other Division One matches saw the gap widen between the top three and the rest of the league, with Hahndorf, Nairne Bremer and Mount Lofty winning easily. 

In the Country Division, Kangarilla further compressed a very tight ladder by beating second-placed Meadows by 34 points. 

It means second and sixth are separated by just one game.
