TATTENHALL strengthened their grip on top spot in Division One with a commanding 10-wicket home win over Prestbury.
The visitors were bowled out for 177 and Tattenhall had no trouble in knocking off the required runs, reaching 178-0 with 21 overs to spare.
Put into bat, Prestbury got off to a good start, losing only one wicket to the opening pairing of Rob Okell and Rob Mulvihill.
An eventful over from Mel Dobson (6-47) shifted the momentum of the innings completely, the veteran skittling two batsmen with his clever off-breaks.
Gary Forster (3-36) showed exemplary control from the other end and Dobson ripped through the tail.
Openers John Gibbon (75no) and Danny Ahmad (93no) then saw Tattenhall home with ease.
ALVANLEY held out for a draw at Stockport Georgians.
The hosts batted first and finished at 254-5, having taken 90 runs off the last 10 overs.
Stockport had been struggling at 40-2 after early wickets for Phil Jones and Nick Geddis.
The quick scoring continued as Alvanley started their innings, Mark Szymura (22) and Nick McKay (13) plundering 34 runs from the first four overs.
After the duo departed, Alvanley recovered thanks to a solid partnership of 94 between Glenn Pickersgill (45) and Cei Sanderson (82).
However, the visitors could not match Stockport's late-innings scoring rate and, with 60 required off the last five overs, they abandoned hopes of the win and closed on 197-8.
CHOLMONDELEY thrashed Runcorn by six wickets after skittling them for 145 (Russ Walker 4-27, Ed Middleton 4-30).
The Chums coasted to victory after a 50 partnership from Pat Taylor (21) and Luke Heritage (59).
Cholmondeley entertain Stockport Georgians tomorrow.
In Division Two, BARROW drew at Trafford MV. The hosts batted first and, at 62-3 off 18 overs, Barrow were on top.
But Trafford's batsmen decided to attack and started dispatching the ball to all parts of the ground, making good use of the small boundaries to score an impressive 235-6.
In reply, Gareth Pawlett (41) and Lee Dwyer (44) took the score from 12-2 to 115-2 to raise hopes of a victory but Barrow were left to settle for 194-7.
In Division Three, five dropped catches and some below-par batting contributed to CASTROL'S 15-run defeat at Lindow on Saturday.
Evans hailed his bowlers for performing 'out of their skin' but was far from satisfied with other departments of the team as Castrol were all out for 135 chasing Lindow's 150-8.
