TATTENHALL left it until the penultimate over to see off hosts Hale Barnes in their top-of-the-table Division One encounter on Saturday.
Skipper Rob Mulvihill hit the winning runs to ensure Tattenhall stayed at the summit.
Winning yet another toss, Mulvihill inserted the home side and immediately got the breakthrough, getting the second ball of the innings to rear-up at Wood, who could do nothing but glove behind to Sandford.
Gary Forster opened from the other end and had Lowen (91) dropped at deep square leg, but he removed Thorpe with some clever bowling.
Dobson (2-64) bowled full and straight and Mulvihill claimed 2-29 as Hale Barns finished on 167-5.
In reply, Danny Ahmed and John Gibbon both went cheaply, leaving the middle order exposed early on for the first time this season.
John Hope (47) played a crucial role as he manipulated the ball into space for ones and twos while timing the boundary ball beautifully, while man of thematch Barry Mitchell made 60no. Tattenhall sealed the game in the penultimate over, reaching 168-6.
ALVANLEY made a draw with visitors Prestbury, who smashed a massive 315-3 after being asked to bat first. Nick Geddis opened with an aggressive but luckless five-over spell while Mark Leadbetter was savaged for 24 runs off just three overs as Prestbury posted their imposing score.
In reply, Nick McKay (26) and Andy Bennion (12) were both dismissed early by Matty Gray and so Alvanley had no realistic chance of victory, given that they had only half the visitors' total after 20 overs.
Glenn Pickersgill and Cei Sanderson consolidated, putting on 60 before Sanderson was caught for 23. John Williams (6) and Phil Jones (23) both lost their wickets trying to inject momentum in to the sluggish Alvanley innings. Pickersgill managed to grind his way to 80 and ensured that Alvanley secured those maximum batting points as their innings closed at 185-6.
CHOLMONDELEY notched up an impressive nine-wicket win against Wilmslow.
Former Cheshire paceman Neil Thompson bagged 4-53 and Ed Middleton 2-27 as Wilmslow reached 198 all out.
Boris Ford, who chipped in with 2-34 on the bowling front, then partnered up with Luca Heritage to close out the game with a 150 run partnership. Ford smacked 94 including seven towering sixes - four of which landed in the nearby lake - and in-form Heritage struck an immaculate 87 including a six and 12 fours to win the game in the 37th over.
Tomorrow, the Chums are at defending champions Prestbury.
In Division Two, BARROW lost at Winsford, who reached their total with three balls to spare.
Barrow were made to bat first and lost three early wickets for just seven runs. At this point, Nick Bell (80no) and Matt Morris (54) came together hoping to steady the ship and Barrow recovered to reach 207-6.
In reply, Winsford had reached 64-1 by the time Phil Noble was brought on to tie up the batsman and reduce the run rate.
However, runs were leaked at the other end as the hosts made it to 208-6.
In Division Three, CASTROL fell to an agonising three-wicket defeat at home to Old Parkonians. The Oilmen closed on 181-8 from their allotted overs before the visitors hit 182-7.
