Mike Andrews (2-32) struck twice early on but some dominant batting helped the visitors to a commanding position.
The introduction of Les Perkins (2-68) and Chris Andrews (2-68) hauled the run-rate back while Ben Salisbury took one expertly judged catch and one juggling effort on the boundary as Saughall fought back.
The pacy Dipak Jena (3-40) was recalled in to the attack in the dying overs to grab three wickets as Langley scored an impressive 250-9.
