THRIPLOW seconds toppled high-flying Audley End after an exhilarating run chase.
The bottom-of-the-table strugglers bounced back in style with their most stirring performance of the season.
The Audley End batsmen looked solid early on, with Evans (49) and Seaman (24) causing problems.
And when those two were eventually sent packing, the rest of Audley End's line-up ensured that runs continued to flow.
You may also want to watch:
Theo Giasemidis' excellent spell of off-spin (2-34) winkled out a couple, slowing the run rate for a while, but the score grew to an apparently impregnable level as Audley End reached 234-5 at the 40-over mark.
The run chase needed a solid start, with John Anderson hitting a quick-fire 65 and sharing an opening stand of 120 with Giasemidis (54).

- BALDOCK'S Sunday team claimed only their third win of the season as they beat Offley by six wickets.
Having lost the toss Baldock dismissed Offley for 123 in 32.4 overs, with Alistair Jones and skipper Graham Letford both bowling well.
In reply, Baldock reached 64-2 in good time, with Ranjit Rayat scoring an well-worked 27, and after some intelligent play from Graham Letford (29 not out) and Simon Goodlad, Baldock eased home.
The win gave them a slim hope of avoiding the drop from Division 1 of the North Herts Sunday League, but they face rampant Houghton Town at the weekend.
