CASTROL seconds secured a seven-wicket win at home to Langley on Saturday, reaching their 141 victory target in less than 33 overs and with just two men down.
Stand-in skipper Ian Evans won the toss and put the visitors in to bat.
The first breakthrough came in the 10th over when Alan Tidman (1-13) bowled a delightful delivery to Phillips (34), who dropped the ball down at his feet to sneak a quick single.
Tidman then ran side by side with the nonstriker Gregory (7) and side-footed the ball on to the stumps. Tidman's day then got even better when he had J Tatler bowled with a smashing inswinging ball.
Part-time bowler Steve Jones (3-26) was then brought on to try and force one of these two batsmen into his catching trap.
Phillips tried his first big shot of the game and was bowled by Steve Jones (3-26), whose good spell continued in the next over when he had C Tatler trapped lbw for a duck with the same fate striking D Bellfield.
Strike bowler Piercy (3-36) then came back into the attack and took the wickets of Baggs (34) and Barber (0), while keeper Evans ran out A Bellfield at the second attempt.
But Langley's tail then wagged enough to add another 20 runs for the loss of only one more wicket, closing on 140-9 off 48 overs.
Castrol's innings started brilliantly with Ian Evans (23) steadily hitting ones and twos from one end and Rupert Milward (90no) smashing the ball all over the ground.
The partnership ended in the 20th over when Evans attempted to turn a one into a two and was quarter of inch short of his ground when the bails came off.
Ritchie Morrisey (9) then came in to smash another great six and hung around while Milward took the score to 109-1.
D Bellfield (1-41) bowled Morrisey but Alan Tidman (11no) smashed one of the biggest sixes in second-team history as he and Milward saw the innings through to the end, finishing on 141-2 off 32.5 overs.
Castrol seconds 20pts, Langley seconds 7. Castrol's first team remain on top of the Cheshire Cricket Alliance Division One table after Saturday's draw at Langley.
The Oilmen used all 48 overs to post 240ao with Garvey making 36 and M Flanagan 33. In reply, Langley hit 174 for 5 with Ged Duffy 89no. Langley took 9 points and Castrol 13.
