BIG-HITTING Bunbury held Division One leaders Wistaston Village to a home draw on Saturday.
Batting first, the home side posted a decent total of 225-6 from their 48 overs.
Among the runs for Bunbury were Ben Camber (44), Nick Swinbank (41) and Simon Lamb (30).
In reply, Gareth Barnes (23) helped to build a good foundation, but the middle order batsmen failed to master the bowling, especially that of Dave Roberts (4-83).
It was down to Chris Townsend (35no) and David Gregg (18) to cling on and deny Bunbury victory by finishing on 156-9.
It was a good weekend for CHESTER COUNTY OFFICERS, who won at Aston in the league on Saturday and defeated Sandbach in the Alliance Cup the following day.
At Aston, Chester skipper Steve Johnson bravely elected to bat on an uneven pitch and wickets fell at regular intervals. Only Ian Barlow came to terms with the irregular bounce as he batted to the end to finish on 36no.
Tony Hattersley (13) and Adam Gewargis (17) were the only batsmen in double figures in an all-out total of 131.
The wheels came off Aston's wagon when their second wicket fell at 73 to a Mike Clarke catch off leg-spinner Mike Rowlands (5-29). Six runs were needed off the last over but Aston had only one wicket left and the game was over when Ally Clark pulled off a great diving catch at mid-off from skipper Johnson's third ball, leaving the hosts on 126.
On Sunday, Tony Collard (53no) helped Chester set 265-5 against Sand-bach, who were all out for 85.
It appeared as though KINGSLEY had halted their losing streak at the tea interval of their home clash against Woodford.
Early wickets from Adrian Burden (4-27) put the visitors in trouble before an inspired spell from Alex Hatt (4-12) blew away the late order to ensure Kingsley had to chase only 107 for victory. But that small total was too much and only Andrew Ainsworth (23) showed any application as the home team crumbled to 77 all out.
ELLESMERE PORT suffered a 138-run loss at Stalybridge St Paul's.
The hosts piled on 241-5 after winning the toss and, in reply, Port were all out for 103 (Nick Brimble 21).
In Division Two, SAUGHALL enjoyed an emphatic 143-run home win against Langley.
Vice-captain Chris Andrews, who was dropped on eight, made the most of the reprieve and went on to make a magnificent unbeaten 85 as Saughall posted 193-6.
Les Perkins (20) and Mike Andrews (21no) both played their part, helping to add 55 and 77 runs respectively for the sixth and seventh wickets.
Saughall bowled Langley out for 50, with Lawrence Gotts (3-14) and Andrews (3-16) in the wickets.
At FRODSHAM, the home side beat Eastham by five wickets. Eastham were bowled out for 125 (I Hart 5-30) and Frodsham won the game with 127-5 (B Large 32no).
In Division Three, hosts Rostherne beat CAPENHURST by 89 runs.
Rostherne made first use with 163-5 and the visitors were all out for 74.
