Abingdon Vale looked home and dry when they reached 91-1 chasing 123 to beat Bledlow Ridge, with Tom Pollard (51) going well.

However, a few overs later they had slumped to 97-8 and in the end they lost their last wicket with the scores level as the match ended in a tie.

Paul Brzezicki (5-47) and Chris Welsh (5-46) did the damage for Ridge, who earlier had struggled against some tight bowling from Vale's left-arm seamer Danny Hartley (3-30).

Abingdon Vale 20, Bledlow Ridge 20.

Kingston Bagpuize were on the receiving end of some remarkable heroics from Bourton Vale captain Nick Anderson.

First he struck 120 not out and with Hamza Almuzahim (92) added 191 for the third wicket as his side reached an imposing 270-4.

Then Anderson took 5-12, which included a hat-trick and four wickets in six balls as the Baggies were bowled out for 166.

Bourton Vale 30, Kingston Bagpuize 3.

Another all-rounder in fine form was Michael Phillipson, who hit 107 and took 4-10 from nine overs in Challow & Childrey's crushing 182-run win at Morris Motors Exiles. The Exiles asked the home side to bat and thanks to Irfan Shah (4-79) did reasonably well to restrict Challow to 220.

But that proved more than enough as the visitors were dismissed for a humiliating 38 by Phillipson and Olly Dimbylow (4-24).

Morris Motors Exiles 7, Challow & Childrey 30.

Shabaaz Alam took 4-12 as Horspath reduced Leighton Buzzard to 89-8 after winning the toss.

Town then fought back as Anthony Francis (37no) and Dan Scott (32) almost doubled the score to 164-8.

An opening stand of 66 laid the platform for the home side's reply, and Robbie Eason capitalised with an unbeaten 42 as Horspath cruised home by six wickets with 28 balls to spare.

Horspath 30, Leighton Buzzard Town 11.

Tiddington were frustrated by some dogged resistance from the Oxford 2nd tail and had to settle for a draw in a match they dominated.

Riaan Krynauw hit exactly 100 and Alex Mackie 54 in Tiddington's 269-8, an impressive total in such damp conditions.

Oxford were never in the hunt once they had been reduced to 91-7 by Sam Hollingshead (5-43) at the halfway stage of their reply, but held on for a draw at 178-9.

Tiddington 19, Oxford 2nd 15.
