James Pietromonaco added 33 not out off 27 balls in the latter overs.
Emu Creek went hard in its run chase, but it didn't have someone in its top-order go on and post a big score.

Mandurang shared the wickets, with Beau Clements (3-23) and Pietromonaco (2-14) the pick of the bowlers.

The Tigers were in trouble at 5-110 before Whittle crunched seven sixes and six fours to lift his side to 8-216.
West Bendigo put the United attack under pressure, but each time the Redbacks looked like mounting a match-winning partnership they lost a wicket.
Kane Newton top-scored with 45 off 31 balls and six of the Redbacks' top seven made starts, but couldn't go on with it.
The home side was bowled out for 199 in the final over. Harry Whittle capped a good game by taking 3-62.
In the final match of the round, Marong stayed in touch with the top four by defeating Axe Creek by nine runs.

Ash Dixon (2-17) and Dean Comensoli (2-27) bowed well for Axe Creek.
In reply, Mark Smith (41) and Nathan Nikolic (33) gave Axe Creek a chance, but the visitors struggled to accelerate through the middle overs and there was too much to do at the end.
Axe Creek finished 8-151 - nine runs short of a Panthers attack that was well led by Tom Wilson (2-23).
