Harpenden continued their excellent start to the season - thanks to a high-scoring win over Bishop's Stortford.

They were put into bat at Cricketfield Lane and after romping to 344-6 in their 50 overs, their survived a strong response from the hosts to win by 30 runs.

It was their second win of the season and leaves them as one of four teams with a perfect record so far, a home game against one of them, Totteridge Millhillians, up next.

This win in Stortford saw a number of good partnerships although the best of them came for the second wicket as James Latham and Cole Briggs put on 152.

Opener Latham played the patient role, edging himself to 65, as Briggs smashed a wonderful century, ending up out for 102 off 78 balls with six fours and eight maximums in there.

A little wobble followed before Usman Malik got 48 in 36 and Andrew Neal finished with an unbeaten 58 in 44.

Stortford's response was solid but crucially Harpenden's bowlers always managed to keep them fairly well controlled.

Ben Twohig was the one true exception, with 92 in just 60 deliveries, but when he was caught by Arthur Garrett off the bowling of Neal, the home side were 242-3, a position they never recovered from.

Neal finished as top bowler with 3-44 from his 10 overs.

In complete contrast, Radlett are still looking for their first win of the season after a 73-run loss at West Herts.

Having won the toss and elected to field, they had the home side in trouble early on at 61-3.

But a fourth-wicket partnership of 113 from Callum Taylor (78) and Cole Seggery (51), followed by 58 between Lewis Koch (35) and Bill Gage (24) for the seventh wicket, took West Herts up to 248-9 at the close.

Radlett's bowling was dominated by 5-44 from Noah Cornwell and 3-38 for Md Nidheesh, before Cornwell returned to put on 38 in the reply.

That though was Radlett's high score as they never managed to put together a meaningful stand, eventually finishing all out for 169 in the 46th over.

They host one of the four unbeaten sides on Saturday, North Mymms, who recorded their second win of the year away to Shenley Village.

Shenley had put the visitors into bat, only to see them score 301-7 with two wickets each from Mohammed Shafiq, Kris Nissen and Suhaib Ahmed.

The reply never got close though, Shenley all out in the 47th over for 177, Mohammed Rizvi their top scorer with 53.

In the Championship, St Albans had a rare tie away to Letchworth.

Batting first Saints made 209-9, helped by 81 from Jamie Regan, but they were held by the home side who finished on 209-7.

Ashish Padki got 2-16 in his 10 overs for St Albans.

Redbourn suffered a four-wicket loss at home to Luton Town & Indians in Division One.

They won the toss and batted first, making 203-8 with 56 from Harry Cobb and 51 for Charlie Mack.

Luton took 38 overs though to reach the target, thanks mostly to 85 from Ali Hassan.

Alex Salter got 2-29 and Henry Amos 2-32 for Redbourn.
