OAKMERE and Winsford top the Second Division after both notched their second win.
WINSFORD triumphed at Old Parkonians, though their hosts got off to a flier and were 94 without loss off just 25 overs.
The Winsford attack needed inspiration and captain Andy Johnson provided it.
He brought himself on to bowl and, with his usual turn and bounce, took an excellent 8-40 off the next 10 overs. James Tierney, with 2-54 off 14 overs, completed the rout to leave Old Parkonians with just 166 from 44 overs.
The Winsford reply got off to a steady start before losing skipper Johnson with the score in the 40s. But they were steadily falling behind the required run rate until the arrival of Barry Crellin at the crease.
His chanceless 91 not out - better than a run a ball - included three huge straight sixes which would have graced any standard, taking Winsford home with an over to spare and only five wickets down at 168-5.
Winsford 2nds were also winners, though they did give themselves a scare in what should have been a straightforward job. They bowled out Port Sunlight for 78 (Dave Tierney 2-14, Gary Sergeant 3-26, Chris Webb 2-15) but were reduced to 0-2 before Steve Margerum (34no) steered them to 79-3.
Oakmere were at Wirral and set a target of 178-8, which the home side never got into focus, being bowled out for 129.
In Division One, DAVENHAM got off the mark, dismissing Sale for 142 and rattling up 144-4.
But BARNTON blew their chances of a second straight victory after doing the hard work and limiting hosts Trafford to 96-9. It should have been easy but wickets disappeared and Barnton were all out for 89. HARTFORD found their feet with a win at Audlem in the Cheshire Building Society Alliance.
All their bowlers were on form - Matthew Shinkfield took 3-11, Rick Buckley 2-17, Graham Prew 2-20 and Nick Passey 2-21 - sharing in the rout of Audlem at 90.
Neil Hart (57no) was the batsman on form as Hartford raced to 91-3.
At home, Hartford 2nds, 197-7, drew with Audlem, 137-7. NORTHWICH continued to find life in Division One tough and suffered their second defeat.
They were beaten at Moss Farm by Radbroke Hall after posting 111 (Shanti Bhardwa 7-41). In reply, Radbroke made hard work of the win, losing seven wickets on the way to 114.
