BEN Large was the star of the show for Frodsham on Saturday as his superb individual display inspired a 105-run victory at Holmes Chapel.
Frodsham batted first and posted 250-6 with Large (72) and James Burton (55) leading the scoring.
Holmes Chapel were bowled out for 145 thanks to a magnificent 9-55 from Large.
Elsewhere in Division One, KINGSLEY suffered a dismal away defeat at the hands of a well-organised Radbroke Hall side.
Batting first, things looked to be going smoothly as Mark Butcher returned to form with 31 and Kieron Ollier continued his excellent start to the season with 68. But none of the rest of the team made double figures and poor shot selection from many resulted in a woeful 123 all out.
Apart from losing a couple of early wickets, Radbroke never looked like failing to reach the total and passers-by were treated to a superbly crafted unbeaten 82 from Dave Forsyth as he lead his team to victory by six wickets.
Leaders BUNBURY won by four wickets at Appleton, who made first use of the wicket and posted 171-9 (J Thompson 6-57). Bunbury won the game with 173-6 (Simon Lamb 64).
Just one wicket stood between SAUGHALL and victory against Division Two table-toppers Wilmslow Wayfarers at Ashton. After Chris Andrews had lost his seventh successive toss, Saughall were reeling at 14-3.
But a 126-run fourth-wicket partnership redressed the balance spectacularly, Martin Huxley making a mature 50 and Andrews hitting six sixes in a fine 83. Their hard work allowed Saughall to post a competitive 214-8.
The Chester team then produced their best bowling performance of the campaign, only to fall within a hairs-breadth of victory.
Mike Andrews picked up two wickets in his opening spell and James Huxley bagged a valuable wicket as Wilmslow dipped to 117-5.
Two more wickets from Les Perkins (3-27), another from Andrews (3-43) and a well-improvised run-out by Mike Rowson left Wilmslow 161-9 with just one over to spare, but the hosts saw out the final over to seal a draw.
In Division Three, CAPENHURST lost by four wickets at home to Audlem.
Cape were bowled out for 65 and Audlem won the game with 66-6 wickets.
