HARSHAD Rawle struck a century for the second league game running but it wasn't enough to give North Mymms the win against a determined Hemel side.
In the battle of the big hitters, Rawle made 113 for Mymms on Saturday, with Hemel's Richardo Mohamed smashing an unbeaten 104 as both sides battled for a draw.
The Home Farm club won the toss and decided to put Hemel in to bat, a decision they perhaps regretted as Hemish Ilangaratne (51) and captain Giles Berry (57) reached their half centuries.
However, Mohamed proved the most impressive as he hit a superb 104 not out and Mymms were set a target of 285 for victory.
Despite Rawle's best efforts, adding to his knock of 101 against Bishop's Stortford with 113 this time around, Mymms couldn't overhaul the big Hemel total.
Suhaib Sarwar made an impressive 73 to add to the batting prowess on show in this game, but in the end both teams had to settle for the draw, with Mymms closing on 262-9 after 52 overs.
This did neither side any favours, with North Mymms occupying bottom spot in HCPL Division Two (East) and Hemel just one place and 10 points ahead of them in ninth.
Mymms are away to Harpenden this Saturday.
