JACK Caulfield's bowling was too much for Stevenage 4ths as North Mymms 4ths claimed a six-wicket win on Saturday.
Caulfield took five wickets in a comfortable Saracens Herts League Division 12 victory for the Home Farm club.
Mymms lost the toss for the fourth time in five matches and Stevenage elected to bat.
The North Herts side were soon in trouble when a risky single to the evergreen Peter Tyler resulted in a run out.
Opening bowlers Mark Terry and Ian Lawless kept it very tight and put Stevenage well behind the clock, with only 28 runs coming from the first 16 overs.
Caulfield was introduced into the attack and soon induced a false shot from the number three, who was caught behind for nine, a score that was only to be bettered by one other player.
From 37-1, Stevenage crumbled to 49-7 with Caulfield returning figures of 5-15 from his six overs.
Terry came back to wrap up the tail and finish with 2-16; the final wicket being a run out from Stuart Bulger.
Damian Southall also picked up four catches behind the stumps.
The dogged Stevenage opener, who survived a long and loud lbw shout from Bulger, was the last man out for a patient 45.
This was over half the final total of 83 all out.
With 49 overs to get 84 to win, victory was never in doubt.
Tyler was the first out for three, bowled by the opposition skipper.
Bulger then chased a wide one and nicked it to the keeper for 15 to take the score to 22-2.
Mickey Stiffin joined Russ Bennett and batted for nearly half an hour before becoming the Stevenage skipper's second wicket, bowled off his pads for three.
Paul Terry smashed the first ball he received for four, followed by a two and another four from his first four balls.
Despite losing Terry when the score was on 66, the total of 83 was passed without further loss.
Southall and Bennett, with an unbeaten 34, saw Mymms home in a six-wicket victory.
