WITH most of the weekend's games cancelled or abandoned because of rain, action was kept to a minimum - but for the clubs who did play it was more or less success all round.
The high flying Reed first team continued their superb start to their Hertfordshire League Division 2 season with victory over newly-promoted Cockfosters.
The result pushed Reed to the top of the table, with James Heslam hitting 93. Last week's match-winner Richard Johnson also played his part in a well-deserved victory.
While Heslam was starring for the first team, his dad John was also in fine form for the thirds in their draw with Letchworth.
You may also want to watch:
Heslam senior dominated from the moment he came to the crease, and hit 94 as his side narrowly missed out on a win.
The weather certainly did not dampen the spirits of Great Chishill, as they claimed their first victory in Division 1S of the Junior League by beating neighbours Barley.

Kirk Hilton and Angus Gent stole the show with their 83 and 60 runs respectively.
Buntingford's second team also claimed victory in their game with Thorley, thanks to a superb all-action display from the impressive Steve Baker.
And after last weekend's defeat, Aspenden Standon & Puckeridge saw off Little Hallingbury in a comfortable six-wicket victory.
