Port Elizabeth - An unbeaten century by Ashwell Prince helped the Warriors fight back strongly on day three of their domestic four-day clash against the Cape Cobras in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.
The former Proteas batsman batted for almost the entire day at St. George's Park and was still there on 168 at the close after facing 258 deliveries, taking his side to 384 for five.
The partnership breaker was Cobras debutant Dane Paterson, also the pick of the bowlers on day three with three for 71, after he had Smuts caught by Yaseen Vallie at midwicket.
But Prince was in next, and after helping the hosts get past 100 in the 32nd over, he quickly reached his half century in 62 balls, followed by White from a far more patient 115 deliveries.
The two put on 97 together for the third wicket, before Paterson again struck by inducing an edge through to wicketkeeper Dane Vilas with the score on 170.
Werner Coetsee and Quinton Friend then combined to run out Pumelela Matshikwe for a duck, before top-scorer Neil McKenzie was last man out for 35 - the veteran batsman caught by Gihahn Cloete off Dry. Reeza Hendricks (two) and Dean Elgar (nine) raced to the victory target to hand their side a first win of the season.
