Johannesburg - Dominic Hendricks and Rassie van der Dussen struck half-centuries as the Highveld Lions and Warriors ended day three of their Sunfoil Series encounter with honours just about even at the Wanderers on Saturday.
The hosts closed on 262/5, a lead of 214, with one day to go.
The Lions began their second innings well at the start of the day as Van der Dussen, who made 51 (126 balls, 5 fours, 1 six), and Reeza Hendricks (48) put on 98 for the first wicket - the latter finally contributing after a poor return in the two previous games for his new team.
Two further wickets then saw the home side slip to 127/3, before Dominic Hendricks (61 off 116 balls, 8 fours) and Yaseen Valli (40) combined for a 78-run fourth-wicket stand that settled any nerves.
But both men fell to the pick of the bowlers, Simon Harmer, to leave their side still precariously placed on 218/5 and a lead of less than 200.
An unbroken 44-run partnership between Dwaine Pretorius (27) and Mangaliso Mosehle (16), however, took the Lions to the close without further trouble.
Captain Harmer ended with 3/73 and Tladi Bokako took 2/57.
