THE LOSS of captain James Rodham through injury proved too big an obstacle for Wycombe House to overcome at Harrow Town on Saturday. All-rounder Rodham missed the Middlesex County Cricket League, Division Three clash with a groin strain, and in his absence the visitors could only post a total of 135 all out.
The bowlers fared no better than the batsman, with Town knocking the runs off at almost seven-an-over to win by six wickets.
In Division Two, Twickenham were left frustrated by Barnes duo Richard Craig and Rohan Kapadia.
The visitors' eighth-wicket pair added 15 runs to bat out time and deny Carlos Nunes' men any more than a winning draw.
Nunes had earlier top scored with 62 in the host's score of 257-9.
Elsewhere, Matt Balch's swashbuckling hundred was only enough to earn Richmond a solitary point from a losing draw with North London.
The middle-order batsman bludgeoned six sixes and 10 fours in a knock of 122.
Nick Alexander (47) and Stephen Bail (40) played supporting roles as Richmond finished on 245-8.
However, despite Mayur Keshwala's 4-76, North London replied with 196-7 to take the lion's share of the points.
In the Premier Division, Teddington were left hanging on for a draw at 94-7 in reply to Ealing's 213-5 declared.
