Mason, ably supported by David Cohen and Avrom Topperman, enabled South to reach their target of 155 with the loss of seven wickets.

South recovered from 62-6 after some poor batting against Ray Tammam who finished with figures of 5-45.

Only Shai Rabinowitz made any other meaningful contribution with 30 at the top of the innings.

Earlier in the daym Maccabi were put in to bat and got off to a steady start with Tammam (28) and Dansky (19) adding 66 for the first wicket.
