Aaron Johnson spearheaded a super Yelling chase as the village side claimed their second Cambs Senior League win of the season.
Johnson hit an unbeaten 135 and Jack Crawley was 60 not out as they saw off Cokenach by eight wickets in Division Three.
Yelling remain bottom despite breezing past a target of 280.
Captain Stuart Cornwell cracked a ton as second-bottom Bluntisham beat Cambourne by 30 runs at the same level.
The opener hit nine fours and seven sixes in his 107, which was responsible for almost half of his side’s total of 216.
Steve Merry fell three runs short of a half-century but made up for that disappointment by leading a smart Bluntisham bowling effort with 3-15 as they removed the visitors for 186.
Needingworth went down to Foxton 2nds by 92 runs in a top-of-the-table clash in Division Two.
