A fine batting performance from Tewin earned them a 61-run win over WGC thirds and sent them top of the SHCL Division Five B table.
Put in on a damp day they made light of the conditions as they set a target of 254-4.
Opening pair Andy Ensum and Matt Vacani put on 66 for the first wicket, with Vacani making a swift 41.
And once Luke Wilde and Ben Sheppard got in tandem, Tewin accelerated away.
Wilde top scored with a fluent 78 while Sheppard ended up 57 not out, a partnership of 123.
And despite a strong opening, Welwyn lost wickets at regular intervals with Mohan Harihar and Russell Pugh taking three scalps each for Tewin.
The second team had an even better win as they hammered Stevenage by 187 runs.
Jon Taylor got 110 and Martin Tipper 77 as Tewin posted 246-2.
