WIDNES were put in their place as Oulton Park - defending champions and lead-ers - made it nine successive wins in the CD Bramall Trucks ECB Premiership.
The visitors won by eight wickets and with 13 overs in hand - the result sending Widnes down a place to fifth.
Widnes, having elected to bat, lost openers James McCoy and Steve Titchard for seven apiece.
But Danny Naughton batted splendidly as Cameron Park, Sean Moore and Luke McCoy all departed unluckily for 13 each.
Captain Ian Spencer joined Naughton in the best partnership of the innings to raise hopes of a challenging total. But, sadly, Naughton was bowled for an excellent 65, attempting to cut.
Spencer continued to prosper but none of the remaining batsmen were able to support him for long.
