A Garwood double act has seen Riverside maintain their hold of top spot despite a spirited Devonport innings.
Against Devonport, the Blues produced their best innings of the season as Cooper Anthes (40 off 39), Zac Towns (46 off 85) and Matthew Kerrison (35 off 68) all contributed with the bat. It was compounded when the travellers provided 20 wides in 29 sundries to get the Blues to 6-221.
After Tom Lewis (2-28) removed Orions openers Brent Lawler and Samuel O'Mahony, the Blues looked in the ascendancy and Devonport skipper Tyler Dell left to carry his team's hopes.
Dell (112 off 133) starred as he found the boundary on multiple occasions but lacked a consistent partner as Tom Garwood (2-24) and Nick Garwood (1-23) scuttled the Orions' middle-order which descended to 202 all out.

Westbury decimated Wynyard at the Showgrounds in an emphatic display which will have opposition teams on notice.
After being sent into bat, the Tigers looked in trouble early as Shamrocks opening bowlers Jonathon Chapman (1-11) and Joel Lloyd (2-16) struck in succession to have the scoreboard at 2-7. The fact sundries (4) scored higher than nine Tigers batters underlined the Shamrocks' showcase of strength as the home side never really recovered.
Tigers first-drop Adam Daniel (16 off 33) held firm in a partnership with Dilan Sandagirigoda (18 off 24), to offer some resistance before the former was run-out and the latter was dismissed by golden arm Michael Lukic (3-4).
Chasing 51 to secure their second win of the season, Shamrocks openers Nathan Parkin (25 off 41) and Jesse Digney (16 off 17) started in brisk fashion to break the back of the chase. Yasaswi Vallabhaneni (1-12) and Sandagirigoda (1-9) removed the pair but Westbury were undeterred as they secured the points in 14 overs.
All-rounder Matthew Fulton (3-17) set the tone early for South Launceston's trip away to Latrobe by removing Brandon King. New ball partner Graham Donaldson (2-10) shredded the Demons' middle-order to have the home side at 4-27 early in their innings.
Demons opener Cal Morse (51 off 98) held the innings together for Latrobe as they pushed beyond the fifty-run mark but Ian Labrooy (3-2) and Fulton returned to skittle the lower-order to halt the momentum.
Knights skipper Sean Harris (36 off 58) steadied the South Launceston reply after Mackenzie Barker and Sisitha Jayasinghe were dismissed early and delivered their first win of the year.
Ulverstone made a statement early as Alex Wynwood (73 off 61) feasted on Mowbray's bowling attack as he plundered six sixes and three boundaries in their fixture.
Wynwood's 93-run partnership with Josh Walmsley (40 off 71) was the backbone of the Black Caps' innings of 6/220 after Evan Gulbis (3-29) stunted the early progress of their openers.
Gulbis (45 off 52) was instrumental with the bat alongside opening partner Jason Snare (63 off 81) to get the Eagles chase off to a solid start before the former Hobart Hurricane was run-out.

Snare's dismissal bought a familiar duo to the crease in Mowbray captain Luke Scott (52 off 86) who controlled the innings as the Eagles got over the line with an over to spare for their second win in two weeks.
Sheffield looked comfortable until young leg-spinner Will Bennett (2-27) struck twice to bring Launceston into the game. Alex King (53 off 83) threatened to take the game away from the Lions before Dilan Cloete (3-21) had the Mountaineers captain caught behind.
Marc Simmonds (57 off 50) managed to steer Sheffield to a competitive 8-170 despite the tail falling at regular intervals.
The Lions boasted a strong top-order but Hugh Clarkson (2-31) nabbed the key wickets of Samuel Elliston-Buckley and Cameron Lynch in a run-out to put the Mountaineers on top early in the chase.
Lions skipper Alistair Taylor (100 off 105) proved crucial in Launceston's tense chase. Despite losing partners in the latter overs, Taylor's highest score of the season was enough to secure a Lions victory.
