New Buckenham travelled to Colney and after losing the toss, Colney surprisingly elected to bat first in bowler friendly conditions.
Jamie Braithwaite opening the bowling with Richard Ferry held Colney to 13-3 of 15 overs.
With Pete Marshall returning to form bowling a tight 12 overs of 1-32 and Jamie Braithwaite bowling seven maidens in his 12 overs to get excellent figures of 2-12, Buckenham were on top with the score only at 28 of 23 overs.
Carl Sturman bowled a short spell of four overs 0-13, leaving Alan Thompson (1-28) and Richard Ferry (3-21), who took two wickets in his first over of his second spell, to bowl tight spells to hold Colney to 122-7 off 45 overs.
With a good job done by the bowlers the batsmen needed to apply themselves to win the game, but lost Andrew Beales early.

Ryan Thompson then hit a quick nine not out to support Terry Hardwick, who carried his bat with 49 not out, and win the game with 11 balls to spare.
