MARCH I are back to winning ways in the Tucker League after a good home victory against Ramsey on Saturday.
Ben Stallworthy (3-42) and Rob Tombs (2-42) were the pick of the March bowlers as Ramsey set a reasonable target of 217-6.
But Andrew Mills once again put March on track with a fine knock of 85. Thanks to the support of fellow opener Jordan Hilliard (32) and Steve Hinson (33), March reached their target with five wickets remaining.
The first team couldn't replicate their winning form on Sunday when they suffered a narrow defeat in Rutland League Division Two.
March's Stuart Mills (4-35) took early wickets but home side, Buckminster recovered to score 216-8.
Again, the March top order started well and Tom Perchard (55), Tombs (34) and Mills (33) put the visitors on track to reach their target.
However, the runs didn't come quickly enough and March ended their innings just seven runs short.
March II enjoyed an unbeaten weekend, winning in the CCA Senior Division One and the Fenland Trophy.
Richard Green (40 not out) and John Wallis (31) topped the batting figures for March in their CCA match at Barrington on Saturday and pushed their team to a total of 185-6.
And the home side pushed home their advantage with the ball. Youngster Kurt Cunningham bowled superbly to return 4-11 and Green continued his good performance with figures of 3-31.
With Chris Peckett (2-27) also making an impact, Barrington were dismissed 45 runs short of their target.
March III got the better of local rivals Wimblington in Saturday's CCA Division Three clash at Neale-Wade Community College.
The Wimblington openers were dismissed early on by Manuj Patel (2-19) while Jamie Stimpson (4-23) and Josh Jackman (2-17) kept up the pressure.
Larham (37), Holmes (31) and Buck (21) were the only batsmen to make double figures before the visitors were dismissed for 133.
An excellent 66 from Jake Miller put March in the driving seat and Dave Wright's 33 helped secure a six-wicket victory for the home side.
March IV had no answer to NCI III in their CCA Division Three match in Cambridge on Saturday.
NCI posted a daunting total of 258-6 despite the efforts of Jordan Hilliard (2-63).
The March reply never got going and Jackman (22) proved to be the top scorer as the visitors suffered a 161-run defeat.
