CYMS' batting lineup continues to deliver this season but there's still one thing missing for captain Ben Knaggs.
Knaggs guided his side to another hard-fought victory on Saturday, finishing 42 not out as the Cougars chased down South Dubbo's total of 202 with four wickets and 16 balls to spare.
The Sam Fraser Cup win was CYMS' fourth straight and keeps Knaggs and his men in top spot on the RSL-Whitney Cup ladder.
It also marked the fourth time the side has gone past 200 and the fifth time it has chased down a total of more than 180 in seven rounds.
But despite the form of the batting lineup no-one in the CYMS side has been able to make a century yet this season.
Tom Coady was again among the runs on Saturday and raced to 68 but fell when being caught in the deep off the bowling of Joe Coles (3/24).
"Tommy Coady has had a couple of good scores and I believe he's someone who can go on and make that big one. He's a great young talent," Knaggs said of the under 16s player.
"The same goes for Brock Larance and Lachie Strachan. They're all great batsmen but they've just got to stay at the crease a bit longer and have a bit better patience at times.
"We give wickets away sometimes but on the other hand they can take the game away from sides.
"They all bat pretty quick."
The calm nature of the chase, controlled by the captain late on, was in stark contrast to the way CYMS started.
Four catches went down inside the first 15 overs and Souths raced to 1/76 in the first 13 overs at Lady Cutler 2.
At 2/106 the Hornets were well positioned but boundaries became harder to come by in the second session, particularly after Angus Norton, who made a team-high 50, and Rajat Rai (38) departed.
"We pulled together and switched back on," Knaggs said.
"I was really pleased with the batting, the way we chased down 200 on a pitch that was doing a little bit."
The run chase began in a flurry as Coady took to the Hornets attack but spinner Coles slammed the breaks on in the middle overs, taking the pace off the ball and getting enough out of the pitch to have the batsmen in two minds.
But Knaggs and Tom Barber got things right back on track, putting on 65 for the fifth wicket to set-up the win.
"It's been pretty good [batting at] six. I can control the innings a bit," Knaggs said of his own form.
"It was good to get us home and good to have Tommy Barber there too. He's an experienced first grader now and we've had a lot of other batsmen help out."
The win was also a special one as it came on Sam Fraser Cup day.
The annual fixture between the two club honours the memory of the former Souths young gun who passed away in 2016.
"It's always a great day and the clubs come together and play in great spirit," Knaggs said.
"It's awesome to see clubs come together and play the game how it's meant to be."
CYMS' attention now turns to next weekend's top-of-the-table clash with Macquarie.
The Blues kept the pressure on the ladder-leaders when scoring a relatively comfortable win over Newtown on Saturday.
The Tigers were knocked over for 156 and Macquarie reached the target with four wickets to spare.
James Hughes took three wickets in his return for the Blues while Ben Strachan top-scored with 38 in the chase.
The other game on Saturday saw RSL-Colts down Rugby by 25 runs.
Charlie Kempston's 76 set-up Colts' total of 5/208 before Nathan Jones, Sam Campbell, and Marty Jeffrey took two wickets each as Rugby was kept to 9/183 in reply.
