They strengthened their grip on second place in Division Two by seeing off promotion rivals Barnack by 125 runs. Opener Alex Marsh cracked a third century of the summer hitting seven fours and nine sixes in an innings of 112 - and sibling skipper Lawrie followed up an unbeaten 86 with a four-wicket haul. Richard Harris (37 and 2-16) was another smart performer as Buckden piled up 283-6 before dismissing Barnack for 158. Captain Marsh said: It was a big result for us. The leaders, Bharat Sports, have opened up a big lead at the top and left everyone else to fight over second spot. The hardest thing for a small club like Buckden is getting a good side out consistently, but weve had a few players step up and others return this year. Wed certainly like to win promotion and weve put ourselves into a good position. The same applies to runaway leaders Sawtry in Division Three. Super bowling from Ian Bonsall, who took 5-21, helped them cement their position at the top of Division Three with a 52-run win at Huntingdon & District 2nds. James Wiltshire (45) and Hayden Bream (35) were the biggest contributors as Sawtry amassed 196-7 before Bonsalls exploits ensured the hosts got no further than 144-9 in reply. Eaton Socon boosted their Division One survival hopes by beating previously unbeaten leaders Southill Park last Saturday. And they were helped to a 95-run success by a fine spell of 3-2 bowling from 13 year-old prospect Olly Jeffries. Jamie Vale also excelled with the ball, taking 4-16 as Southill Park were shot out for just 95 in pursuit of Eaton Socon 2nds offering of 190-9. That tally featured knocks of 48 from Simon Cooper and 41 by Ray Tudor. Fellow strugglers Ramsey 2nds also picked up a welcome win as they held on by 11 runs at Peterborough side Hampton. Ashley Wells (3-41) and Tim Willis (3-43) impressed as the locals successfully defended their 209 tally by removing the hosts for 198. Brampton saw their three-match winning run come to an end in Division Four. They were beaten by 71 runs at Peterborough side Kings Keys in a high-scoring clash, during which almost 500 runs were scored. The home side piled up 282-7 despite some smart bowling from Duncan McGregor, who claimed 4-43. Stuart Henderson fell two runs short of a half-century as Brampton reached 211-4 in reply. Opener Andy Watts contributed 30. Little Paxtons promotion hopes were dealt a blow by a three-wicket reverse at another Peterborough outfit, Werrington. Tony Storey hit a half-century to help the locals reach 199-8, but it was bettered by the home side with four overs to spare.
