The North West Dragons recorded just their fourth win of their CSA T20 Challenge on Friday with a convincing six-wicket win against the Warriors in Potchefstroom.

This was the Warriors third consecutive defeat in the competition after losing to the Paarl Rocks and the Lions earlier in the week. They have however done enough to ensure that they will be going through to the semi-finals.

The Warriors had a bat first at the JB Marks Oval and they scored 145/7 in their allotted 20-overs with the captain Matthew Breetzke top-scoring with 45, while JP Kings scored 28 and Andile Mokgakane added 25.

Gideon Peters was the pick of the Dragons bowlers with 2/28 in his 4-0vrers, while Kerwin Mungroo took 2/29.

In reply, Wihan Lubbe, scored 39 not out and Raynard van Tonder scored 31 as the Dragons chased down the target in 18.3 overs.

Sadly for the Dragons it would appear that their chances of reaching the semi-finals are over despite the win. In addition to the Dragons having to win their last two games, they would have needed a favour or two.

On Friday night the defending champions, the Titans, beat the log-leading Lions by two-wickets in the Jukskei derby at SuperSport Park, while Western Province thrashed the Paarl Rocks by 63-runs at Boland Park.

The Titans are in fourth on 31 points now, while Western Province remained in fifth with 28 points, and the Dragons are still in sixth on 25.

On Sunday the Rocks will host the Dragons in Paarl during the final round of matches before the playoffs.
