HETHERSETT and Tas Valley dropped to second place in Division One of the Norfolk League when they lost for the first time this season.
Chasing a target of 235, Hethersett went down to Great Witchingham Seconds by 11 runs. Witchingham won the toss and elected to bat, scoring 234 all out with Lee King the pick of the Hethersett bowlers with 5-46.
Hethersett fell behind the run chase despite a spirited 91 from opener Richard Ellis which was by far and away the top score with several other players getting a start but then falling when they looked capable of a decent total. Hethersett's only consolation was the 10 batting and bowling points.
Old Buckenham won and so leapfrog Hethersett to the top of the league.
