Cape Town - An unbeaten half-century from Edward Moore carried the Warriors to their first Sunfoil Series win of the season after they upset the Titans at St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth on Friday. 

The hosts won by six wickets with their left-handed opener ending on 58 (102 balls, 7 fours) as they comfortably chased down the 105-run victory target early on the final day. 

Colin Ackermann hit 23 and helped Moore settle early nerves with a 31-run second wicket stand after Michael Price (11) helped put on 42 for the first wicket. 

There was a bit of a wobble for the home side, who were thumped by the Hollywoodbets Dolphins last week, as they lost Ackermann, Lesiba Ngoepe (8) and Yaseen Vallie (0) in quick succession. 

But the low target meant they just needed someone to bat through, with Moore obliging as they cruised to victory. 

Shaun von Berg was the pick of the bowlers with 2/30 as the Titans took 4.54 points from the loss. The hosts walked away with 17.9 points for the win.
