Eaton Socon continue to build momentum in Division One of the Cambs & Hunts Premier League with victory over Ramsey.
The two-wicket victory moves followed their first win of the campaign last week and moves them into fifth.
Ramsey had won the toss and opted to bat first but ran into a superb Conrath Meiring who claimed 5-27 as ESCC restricted the hosts to 167-9.
And despite a wobble late on in their reply, as they went from 90-2 to 119-7, they closed the win out with two overs remaining, thanks to 21 from Ethan Rice and an unbeaten 35 from Keyan Gace.
Matt Rawling also hit 35 while Joe Dawborn hit 29.
The second team meanwhile lost by six wickets to Biggleswade in Division Three.
Karthik Jagadish top-scored with 28 not out as they reached 124 and the visitors got home in the 27th over despite two wickets each for Stuart McCrum and JJ Hewitt.
