Prestbury 165-8 Davenham 147-4
THEY won the toss, put Prestbury in and by the middle of the 17th over they were just 33-2.
At this point Prestbury was hit by a mini-monsoon and over an a hour's play was lost.
The match was reduced from 90 overs to 70, of which Prestbury could bat out their full 45 overs and Davenham would have just 25 in reply.
'It seems such an unfair rule, especially at such a crucial stage of the season. It is disappointing to get two points for the draw when we had the better run rate and lost fewer wickets,' said secretary Stephen Greaves.
Prestbury, with the option to declare, used up their allocation (Paul Jackson 4-49) leaving Davenham to pursue more than six runs an over.
Louis Bentley (21) and Dave Holden put on 78 in the first 14 overs and by the 20th they were 97-4.
In the remaining five overs Holden (94no) and his partner Mark Spalding (13no) scored a further 50 runs and, despite their best efforts, Davenham ended short of victory.
Alvanley 128ao Oakmere 129-4
OAKMERE beat the weather and their opposition, cruising to a six-wicket victory to maintain their promotion challenge.
Alvanley struggled against Chris Nelson (3-23), Andy Norton (2-38 in 19 overs), Pete Hutchinson (3-34) and Craig Phelan (1-25).
In reply, Paul Yearsley (33) and Paul Hutchinson (31) got Oakmere off to a flyer with the dark skies closing in.
After both were bowled Phil Nelson (29) and Paul Guilford (19no) saw Oakmere to the pavilion as winners.
Oakmere are second but taking nothing for granted.
