The Strikers battled very hot and humid conditions at Albrecht Park in Alice Springs to keep their finals hopes alive, with Sophie Devine (59 from 48 balls) leading the way with the bat, after captain Suzie Bates won the toss.
An entertaining knock from Bridget Patterson (32 off 26 balls), which included three massive sixes, helped the side to 7/138 after their 20 overs.
Lauren Ebsary top-scored for the Scorchers (38 off 30 balls) after Megan Schutt took the crucial wicket of Meg Lanning in the first over.
Amy Jones (14) and Elyse Villani (13) toiled hard, however the Strikers bowling attack was at its best, dismissing the side for just 108 with nine balls to spare.
Dani Hazell took her best figures of WBBL|04 with 3/21, including an incredible caught and bowled, while Sarah Coyte (3/20) and Megan Schutt (2/21) were also dangerous with the ball.
Wicketkeeper Tegan McPharlin broke her previous season record of 13 dismissals in a season when she stumped Chloe Piparo for four.
The Strikers will take on the Perth Scorchers again tomorrow at Albrecht Oval from 9:30am in Alice Springs. Entry is free and the match will be live-streamed on cricket.com.au and via the CA Live app.
