Ralph Orchard hit 92 for Cropredy 2nd, but still finished on the losing side as Sandford St Martin 2nd pulled off a tricky run chase.
Orchard’s effort came in Cropredy’s 193-9, in which Trevor Simms (4-46) made the other telling contribution.
Chas Taylor (69) got Sandford’s reply on the right track before Mark Cook (33no) saw them over the winning line on 197-4.

Aston Rowant 3rd endured a pointless afternoon at home to Wolverton Town as they suffered a humiliating defeat.
First, Glenn Dickinson (5-34) and Kieran Lampard (4-21) were far too good for the home batsmen, who were soon back in the hutch for only 96.
Then Asim Hussein hit 65 not out to help Town reach 100 without loss.

There was a rather closer affair at Great Brickhill 2nd, where the home side lost by only eight runs in a tense finale.
Long Marston’s 173 all out was built around useful knocks by Paul Young (57) and Paul Marsh (40), while Glenn Burrows took 6-56 in an impressive spell.
Brickhill were always in contention, but Simon Bound (3-27), Lee Beesley (3-47) and Matt Gibson (3-59) shared the wickets between them and left Nick Cadman stranded on 53 not out when the hosts were all out for 165.
