Chris Chambers saw Buntingford to victory over Hare Street & Hormead, with a fine all-round display.
Chambers hit 39, and then bowled a great spell of 6-4-4-1 to see his side home.
Batting first, Buntingford lost Stuart Lawrence in the first over for a duck, with Phil Church quickly following when he was run out after a mix up with partner Izuru Channa.
Channa reached 11, before he was caught when playing a lazy shot. The visitors' next three batsman all went cheaply, and Buntingford found themselves tottering on 53-6.
Chambers and Martin Coote came together and set about repairing the damage.
They shared a partnership of 59, before Chambers was out for 39 with the score on 112.

Some lusty late-order hitting from Neil Atkins (16 not out), saw Buntingford to 174-9.
In reply, Hormead struggled for early runs and were soon in trouble at 25-3. Clive Newland came to the crease at and he played a great innings of 76 before finally being bowled by Church.
