SAUGHALL were left cursing the weather for a second successive Saturday as their Division Two fixture was rained off.
Visitors Heaton Mersey Village were soon reeling when Lawrence Gotts took two wickets from his first three balls.
He took two more to leave HMV struggling on 39-4 but a sixth-wicket partnership worth 128 saw the away side recover to 228-8 (Mike Andrews 2-36).
The heavens opened during the tea-break before Saughall’s batsmen emerged into the gloom. They had reached 66-4 when further rain forced them off the field for good.
FRODSHAM’S Division One game at Appleton was abandoned while in Division Three CAPENHURST lost by 135 runs at home to Audlem.
The visitors notched up 229-3 and then bowled Cape out for only 92.
