TATTENHALL overcame the difficulty of the sweltering heat to canter to a three-wicket victory at Wilmslow in Division One.
The home side won the toss and, after electing to bat, they reached a score of 201-7.
In reply, Tattenhall began slowly but the fourth-wicket partnership of Mike Alexander (80no) and Graham Harper (56no) steadied the ship and fired them to victory with 202-3.
ALVANLEY were held to a frustrating draw after making a bright start with the bat at home to Runcorn.
Nick McKay (67) and Andy Bennion (50) struck up a partnership of 75 before Glenn Pickersgill's 67no saw them declare on 249-5.
The visitors made a nervy start and although Steve Ollerenshaw (26) and Mark Cahill (38) formed a partnership of 44 Runcorn found themselves in trouble on 147-8.
But despite the best efforts of the Alvanley bowlers they could not make the breakthrough and the visitors held on to finish on 182-9.
CHOLMONDELEY were thrashed by nine wickets on their own patch by Marple.
The Chums were first to bat on a good pitch and were restricted to a disappointing 205-7 with Pat Taylor (49) James Cooke (39) and Russ Walker (34) leading the scoring. Marple then breezed past the target in 40 overs, notching 205-1.
In Division Two, BARROW clinched a stunning four-wicket victory at home to table-topping Pott Shrigley.
The hosts opted to bat first and, although they made a poor start, Gareth Pawlett (40) and Nick Bell (80) produced the best part-nership of the season to finish on a score of 198-6.
Shrigley struggled in response and never recovered from losing early wickets as they were dismissed for 136.
