Abingdon Vale pulled off a one-wicket win over Tiddington in the tightest possible finish to return to the top of Division 2.

Vale, who tied with Bledlow Ridge earlier in the season, were almost involved in another as they chased down the visitors' 190 all out.

Paul White took 4-55 for the hosts and then watched Mike Cook (85) and Tom Pollard (38) take them to the brink of victory.

Sam Hollingshead's 5-59 proved to be in vain as Abingdon squeezed out the vital runs to reach 191-9.

Abingdon Vale 30pts, Tiddington 17.

Only Russ Turner, who hit 60 from 124 balls, made much progress for Ridge.

Oxford's batsmen found the going easier, with John Barrett (57) and Patrick Stern (55) adding 116 for the third wicket as they reached 153-3 in the 32nd over.

The result saw Oxford leapfrog Ridge in the table.
