Old Owens Cricket Club stormed to a seven-wicket win after their bowlers put on a masterclass at home to Stevenage.
The hosts at Old Owens Sports Ground won the toss and elected to field, a decision they didn’t regret for a second.
Less than 37 overs later Stevenage were all out for 88 with all six bowlers used claiming a wicket, and Bradley Lane, Shoaib Khan and Caleb Hewson all getting two each.
And Old Owens set about their target with vim and vigour, and despite a small wobble halfway through when they lost three wickets for 15 runs, they got there with just 18 overs gone.
Rhys Carter led the way with a swashbuckling 46 before Chris Palmer and Ralph Lane closed things out.
The second team were also celebrating after a 68-run win at Chipperfield Clarendon 2nds.
They made 154-9 batting first, Robinson Thiruchelvam top scoring with 39, before 4-18 from Rick Martin helped Owens bowl the hosts out for a mere 86.
