Tewin kept up their good form with more wins for both the first and seconds and a historic first game for the third team.
The firsts travelled to Old Camdenians and despite being put into bat on a tricky wicket, Ash Patel (41) and Alex Portas (67) played beautifully.
For Portas it was his second successive half-century for the club and after he had departed the middle order accelerated matters along with some big-hitting and clever running.
There were important contributions from Ed Fielding, Will Pickworth and Taylor Weeks ass they posted an above par 224-7 in their 45 overs.
In response, Pickworth grabbed three early wickets on his way to 3-16 but from there on it was the Jamie Bryce show.

Batting first, they posted 206-6 with Matt Vacani scoring 50 and Noah Lipschitz just one less.
In reply a remarkable bowling spell from Reagan Tukapua terrorised Stevenage’s batsmen as he took eight wickets for just 12 runs.
Charlotte Wilde also grabbed a wicket while there was a run out for Martin Tipper as Stevenage were dismissed for just 38, leaving Tewin top of the Regional A East division.
A new chapter in the Tewin history books came when a third team stepped out for the very first time.
They faced Braughing in a friendly and although the match ended in an eight-wicket defeat it was still an extremely proud day for the Upper Green-based cricket club.
A spokesman said: “It emphasises the fantastic support, quality and availability on offer at the moment.”
