MARCH Town Cricket Club took revenge on high-flying Sawston on Saturday, while Wisbech’s title challenge was halted by rain... again.

The Tucker Gardner Premier Division high-flyers trounced March by nine wickets in May - but it was a different story in the return game at The Avenue.

The visitors collapsed from 92-2 to 131 all out, with Ryan Meyer (4-23) and Tyler Phillips (3-23) impressive.

Rain delays left March chasing a revised total of 96, with eight wickets in hand, off 35 overs. But aggressive batting from David Hodson (41) and Carl Chapman (30 not out) meant March needed just 18.2 overs to record a comfortable victory.

• WISBECH Town Cricket Club lost ground on leaders Foxton after a tea-break storm washed out another match at Harecroft Road.

The rain ended what was promising to be an interesting contest after St Ives dismissed the hosts for just 139.

Henry Rosier (47) and Jack Hastings (33) batted well but the meagre total meant Wisbech failed to record a bonus point. Meanwhile, Foxton recorded full bowling points before their clash with Castor & Ailsworth was abandoned.

• TITLE rivals Histon ended March II’s seven-game winning run to supplant them at the top of Cambs Senior Division One.

Stuart Arnold (2-51) bowled solidly but Histon amassed a hefty 213-4. March folded for just 102 in reply, with Jordan Morgan (21), Richard Green (18) and Toby Nulty (13) the top-scorers.

• WIMBLINGTON continued their impressive form in Cambs Junior Division 2A as they saw off rivals March III.

Matt Hubbard (3-39) could not prevent Wimblington posting 175, before Andy Bryan (25) and Jamie Stimpson (25) were the top-scorers in March’s disappointing reply of 111 all out.

• TOMMY Howgego had time to hit 42 before March’s clash with Rutland Division One leaders Peterborough Town was rained off on Sunday.

• TEENAGE talent Daniel Woods hit a career best 84 on Sunday - but a late storm prevented the completion of another match.

Witcham were 92-4 in reply to March II’s 163-4 when the rain came.
