North Mymms 84-3 Potters Bar DNB - match abandoned
THE weather ruined Potters Bar's Home Counties Premier League match for the second successive weekend.
The Division Two (East) leaders' derby against North Mymms at The Walk was abandoned early in the first innings. Saturday's six points leaves Potters Bar still eight clear at the top with just four weeks left of the season.
Home skipper Len Cooper won the toss and asked Mymms to have first use of the wicket in the wind and drizzle and it wasn't long before Bar broke through.
Mark Saxby was well taken by Nick Walker off skipper Cooper's bowling for seven.
And when Herts skipper Andy Lewis went for 14, caught at slip off Walker, the visitors were 45-2.
The third wicket soon followed on 62 as Walker removed the in-from Rhys Wynne for 31.
But by now the rain had started to increase and the conditions were more akin to water polo than league cricket.
The umpires finally called it a day with Mymms 84-3 from just shy of 25 overs.
Bar are eight points clear of Bishop's Stortford at the top with two home games and two away games left to play.
They next entertain relegation threatened Langleybury at The Walk on Saturday.
Mymms are still sixth and face Sawbridgeworth, the side just above them, this coming weekend.
