DAVENHAM beat reigning champions Prestbury by more than 200 runs to maintain their own promotion challenge at Butcher's Stile.
Put into bat openers Louis Bentley (33) and Dave Ashley (49) set a solid platform, though both were out by the 11th over.
Mark Greaves and Tom Screen took over and put on another 90 runs, before Screen was trapped lbw for 27.
Mark Spalding (33) then joined Greaves who went on to make 85 and Davenham declared two overs later.
Davenham had 50 overs to attack the Prestbury batting but needed just 24.
Dean Jackson took 7-17 and Ian Cwiklinski returned 2-9.
Oakmere 184-4 Stockport Georgians 183-7
The main threat to Oakmere's dominance came from the gathering storm clouds, but the weather held good as Andy Norton bowled 16 overs picking up two wickets along the way and Chris Nelson (3-42).
Oakmere had 40 overs in which to reach the target and were set en route by Paul Hutchinson (30) and Paul Yearsley (49).
Phil Nelson made an immaculate 59no and his partnership with Paul Guilford (20) saw Oakmere to within sight of the finishing line. Nick Porter (18no) finished the job.
Marple 267-4 dec Weaverham 264-6
Weaverham posted their highest ever score in the Cheshire League - and still fell four short of victory!
Weaverham bowlers were far from their best, though Gordon Allen, Alan Bell and Lucas Fraser each picked up a wicket.
Jamie Allen joined Aussie Lucas Fraser at the top of the order for Weaverham on the day in the absence of the prolific Dave Holden and the two batted brilliantly in an opening stand of 150 in which Allen hit a magnificent 77 and Fraser 70.
Rob McMillan was also in sparkling form plundering 70 in double quick time and he and Jon lightfoot looked as though they would get Weaverham home. But a glut of wickets fell following the departure of Lightfoot as Weaverham came so frustratingly close.
Roger Pickering took 2-65 for Weaverham 2nds. Cheadle Hulme Ladybridge scored 261-5 and Weaverham 165-6 (Neil Gerrard 51, Phil Harris 31).
Winsford 107ao Ashton-on-Mersey 198-8dec > > >
Winsford 107ao Ashton-on-Mersey 198-8dec
Winsford's promotion hopes were severely jarred by the Division Two leaders at Knight's Grange.
They dropped out of the running - hopefully, temporarily - after an early batting collapse, losing their first four wickets for just 17 runs.
Earlier James Tierney had taken 5-51 to win the Jackie Dean man-of-the-match award, with Mark Dean, Mike Clare and Colin Dean taking the other wickets.
The target was by no means impossible, until Winsford's wretched start. From 17-4 they staggered to 69-7 and avoiding defeat was the only option.
Barry Crellin and Chris Brandon saw out seven more overs, before the skipper went for a fighting 36 and Brandon soon after.
But Winsford 2nds put pressure on their Northwich counterparts at the top with their fifth straight win.
They bowled out Holmes Chapel for 90, openers Paul Hough (4-25) and Phil Doman (2-22) doing most of the damage early on. Craig Webb (3-18) finished them off
Mark Nicholas and Mike Lancaster were joint top scorers with 29 as Winsford won at a canter.
BARNTON (179-6dec) were beaten at home by Barrow (180-1) and remain in trouble.
Northwich 196-9 Over Peover 192-6 dec
Northwich kept their Third Division promotion hopes flickering at a tense Moss Farm.
The game came down to the final pair at the crease in the last over with all four results still possible.
The final pair were the experienced Northwich stalwarts Simon James and Nick Shaw, and between them they over-hauled the target, in a game where dropped catches were prominent.
Jim Kimber took 3-60 from 15 overs and Scott Hayes 2-34, after Over Peover recovered from a shaky 37-3 start.
Northwich got off to a racing start through Paul Alcock (42); teenagers Scott Hayes (40) and Martyn East (23) pushed the score along so that James and Shaw could see them to victory.
Northwich 2nds won by eight wickets at Trafford MV thanks to a superlative performance by Mark Wrench, who took nine wickets for 45 runs.
Trafford were all out for 137 and Northwich made 143-2. Andrew Pickstock (68no) was star bat, Mark Phillips hit 29, Sammy Naylor 20 and Ant Shaw 22no.
Northwich 3rds (68ao) lost by two wickets to Capen-hurst 2nds (70-8) (Craig Douglas 3-9, Stuart Plant 4-27).
Juniors: U9s - Northwich made 11 wins from 11 against Congleton and won the South Cheshire League title; U17s - Northwich lost to Elworth by 18 runs in the North Cheshire League Cup final; U18s - Northwich 115 beat Oulton Park 96-9 (Glinoj Cherian 4-9) in the Mid Cheshire YA and now play Winnington Park in the final.
