MORTLAKE captain Tyler Schafer ensured his side remained in the hunt for top spot on the South West Cricket Association division one ladder with a commanding victory.
The first-year leader smashed 84 runs to help the Cats post an impressive total of 200 from their 50 overs at the crease against Cobden.
The innings paved the way for his side which eventually bowled Cobden out for 148 in 43.2 overs.
Schafer, who scored his first half-century of the season after two innings of 40, also took the final wicket in the two balls he bowled.
Todd Robertson (3-21), Todd Lamont (2-216 and four maidens) and Lachlan Higginson (2-37) were the pick of the bowlers for the Cats, who are sitting two wins and a game behind ladder-leaders Pomborneit.
The Bulls secured a win of their own with leader Grant Place scoring an unbeaten 47 to help down Terang.
