North Mymms II 187-10 drew with Wheathampstead 80-3 - match abandoned due to rain
Wheathampstead lost an important opportunity to gain ground in Division Three when rain curtailed the run chase on 68-3 off 20.5 overs.
Chris Martin top scored with 20 before being run out. Prior to this poor catching had allowed North Mymms to post a score of 187-10 in 52.5 overs.
The main beneficiary was Nick Gilbert who went on to make 73 well supported by D Jeffrey with 45. Dave Tree (11-1-42-3) and Ali (15.5-1-44-4) bowled well for the Nomanslanders but all to no avail as 10 points were picked up to Mymms' 11.

Batting first, 200 runs were chalked up thanks to a maiden half century by David Arbuthnott (51). Solid contributions from Kevin Barrow (30) and David Dabare (40) and left hander Harry Swan secured maximum batting points with a hard hit 29. J Pond bowled tidily for his 8-1-31-3 spell.
In reply Hoddesdon found the Wheato pace attack too hot to handle. Nick Martin produced his best spell of the season with six wickets (14-3-43-6) and David Arbuthnott capped an excellent day with 8-1-22-2.
The match was wrapped up in 28 overs and happy skipper Tim Kiek saw his side go 43 points clear over fifth-placed Sawbridgeworth.
