TATTENHALL were undone by the Division Two leaders at the Flacca on Saturday.
On winning the toss, visitors Marple opted to bat first.
It looked like a good toss to lose as Craig Williamson immediately began to extract prodigious turn from a slightly soft surface.
Backed up by the pacey Andrew Morris at the other end, the opening pair gave very little away and, after 20 overs, Marple had crawled to 40.
As the pressure began to mount, wickets began to tumble. Morris (2-25) got the breakthrough, then Williamson began to reap the rewards of accuracy and patience. Another five-wicket haul took his season’s tally past the 70 mark and enabled Tattenhall to restrict Marple to 129ao
What looked a relatively straightforward total was made tougher by the turning surface and the presence of the league’s leading wicket taker, off-spinner Andrew Greasley.
Mike Roberts went early and, although a second-wicket partnership between Graham Harper and John Hope settled things down, Tattenhall were all out for 118.
In Division One, CHRISTLETON returned with seven points from rain-ruined drawn match at Poynton.
Paul Allen let the way with 3-51 for the Chester visitors as Poynton finished on 195-9dec. Iroshan de Silva (3-70) and Matt Parkinson (56-2) were the other wicket-takers.
After tea, Christleton were 94-3, Nick O’Connell (30no) and de Silva (28no) the men at the crease.
