Wembdon 2nds, of Division Four, sealed a commanding win over Staplegrove 2nds thanks to three wickets apiece from N Richards (3-32) and W Wiltshire (3-30) which helped to bowl the home side out for 135 chasing 196-7.

Kilve's match at home to Frome was cancelled.
In Division Six, Bridgwater Sports crumbled to 63 all out chasing Huish and Langport 2nds total of 164. Only T Netto (29) and K Ingram (17) made double figures after B Winter (3-34) and P Winter (3-32) had good spells with the ball.
Division 8S saw Wembdon Wyverns beat Middlezoy 2nds in a close affair. Phil Morrish (44) top scored in Wembdon's 154 with G Purchase (3-37) and A Campbell (4-17) doing the damage for Middlezoy.
In reply, Zoy fell 27 runs short despite 30 from J Miles as T Fagan's incredible 7-35 routed the visitors.
Spaxton picked up a losing draw against Burnham after they closed on 135-8 chasing 168 to win. D Pople claimed 5-28 to help restrict the visitors and openers J Venton (27) and N Peek (22) got off to a good start before a collapse left the team holding on for a share of the points.
North Petherton 2nds match against South Petherton 2nds and Chilton Polden 1sts versus All Saints were cancelled.
In Division 9NW, Chilton Polden were dismissed for 119 chasing Belvedere A's 215-6. J Davis was the pick of the Chilton attack with 4-58 but a top order collapse in reply dented any chances of a win despite gritty knocks from D Saunders (32) and A Blewett (31) down the order.
