Newtown has got itself within touching distance of the RSL-Whitney Cup's top three after downing CYMS on Saturday.
A disciplined performance with the ball and a strong all-round showing from Lee Price helped the Tigers score something of a shock win over the defending premiers.
In the first RSL-Whitney Cup match of the season to be played at No. 1 Oval, CYMS was only able to post 9/146 from its 40 overs.
Price claimed 2/28 while captain Mat Skinner (3/27) was dangerous with the new ball and Steve Skinner also chimed in with an economical spell of 1/18 from eight overs.
The new-look No. 1 Oval pitch isn't the easiest to bat on as Tom Coady (34), Thomas Nelson (27) and Lachlan Strachan (18) all got starts but no Cougar was able to go on and do the job.
Price was able to dig in during the chase and it made all the difference.
The all-rounder played the anchor role when opening the batting but still ensured the runs kept ticking over.
Price finished unbeaten on 65 as his side reached the target with five wickets and more than three overs to spare.
Trent Smith (27) also chipped in to help the Tigers score a third win of the season while Strachan 3/22 from seven) was the only CYMS bowler who could really make inroads with the ball.
The win has Newtown just two points off the third-placed CYMS, who are three points off Macquarie in second.
At the top of the ladder RSL-Colts is moving clear of the pack.
The men in red remain unbeaten after a convincing win over South Dubbo on Saturday.
The win was extra pleasing given Macquarie and CYMS both suffered defeats in round eight.
Colts was in control for most of the contest on Saturday.
Six of the seven bowlers used took wickets as Souths was knocked over for 137.
Ben Taylor was the pick of the bunch with 3/14 while Marty Jeffrey contributed late on with 2/7.
Charlie Kempston then ensured there would be nervy run chase.
The hard-hitting left-hander belted 70 inside the first 10 overs to put his side within reach of Souths' total.
The win was secured in just the 16th over with only three wickets lost.
