IN an ill-tempered match Thriplow seconds were comprehensively beaten by league leaders Thurlow.
Thurlow raced to 129 in the 22nd over, with openers Farrant and Donno finding Thriplow's Tuck and Baxter far too inviting.
Farrant made his way to 56 before he was bowled by Carr, while Donno went for 59, and at 159-2 Thurlow were in a good position.
The introduction of Bucknor pushed the Thurlow score on further, as he began to find the boundary.
With the score on 220 in the 32nd over, as Hurrell reached 32 not out and Bucknor made an undefeated 40, the pair departed from the crease with an early declaration.
Not appreciating that a declaration is not permitted by the league rules, Thriplow took to the field with the intent of making Thurlow pay for their premature closure.

And openers John Anderson and Jon Goodacre had hoped to set about building their innings, but left the action after making only three runs between them.
Martin Dabnor did his best to hang around, but he saw his companions disappearing all too frequently - with none of the top nine batsmen scoring more than five runs.
With the score on 50-6 in the 24th over, Dabnor (34) found some form to blast 22 runs before he was caught by wicket keeper Bucknor.
Jon Collins also came and went, and Ian Dixon (4) followed suit shortly thereafter leaving it to the club's younger players to recover some pride.
William Wright (16) showed his peers the way by playing some intelligent shots before he was run out, and Thriplow were all out for 100.
