EATON Socon survived a tense finish to hold off Alconbury in the Hunts County Cricket League Division 1 on Saturday.

Eaton's openers Matt Rawling (67) and captain Terry Day (40) got the home side off to a great start in their 45 overs.

But a good spell of bowling from Alconbury's Richard Ewing (4-42), slowed the home side's total and the next three wickets fell cheaply.

Matt Childerley's 35 not out got the innings back on track and the hosts finished on 190-5, setting the visitors 191 to win.
