Union stay top as rain thwarts Madibaz chase

SA Home Loans Union maintained their position at the top of the log with a 92-run victory over Motherwell in their NMB Premier League cricket fixture yesterday.

Opener Bradley Holtzhauzen was once again the star of the show. He belted 89 to follow on his 156 against Welcome last weekend.

Kelvin Hooke scored 34 not out at the death to help Union post 221/7.

Motherwell struggled from the outset although Neville Botha scored 38 to add to his two wickets to give their total some respectability.

Champions Mecer NMMU1 were thwarted by the rain in Uitenhage in the only match played on Saturday.

The Madibaz bowled miserly to restrict Buco Uitenhage to 187/9 in their 50 overs with spinner Josh Dolley taking 3/27.

The students were well on their way to victory at 82/1 in the 16th over when persistent rain resulted in no further play being possible. Eddie Moore finished unbeaten on 35.
