Mayflower, who batted first, was restricted to 149 thanks to a brilliant fielding display backed by tight bowling by the men from Plettenberg Bay.  With the Pioneers total at  92/5 a nail-biting finish was on the cards but an unbroken partnership between Nathan Kamfer (23*) and Garth Bock (33*) paved the way for a Pioneers victory.
