AFTER hauling themselves back into the match on the bowling front Thriplow were unable to deliver a batting performance to match and went down by 45 runs to Fulbourn.
Having won the toss and decided to bat, Fulbourn were soon in trouble as Chris Viner once again delivered a first-over wicket, before enticing Mynott to nick one to keeper Russell.
He then bowled Kindred with the first ball of his next over but was unable to deliver the hat-trick.
From 23 for 2 Hodgson and Hartley effortlessly took the score on to 120 in the 25th over.

Tom Care, on his first team debut, delivered an excellent spell of 6-1-20-0 but there seemed no way through for the Thriplow attack.
However, in Thriplow captain Neild's third over, the bowlers took back control of the game and were not to relinquish it for the rest of the afternoon.

Hartley (42) misdirected a drive to be well caught on the extra cover boundary by Smith, and Hodgson (46) swung across the line and missed, to be lbw to Turner.
The floodgates then opened, as Westbrook (9) ran himself out, Monk (0) flicked Turner to Craze, and then Neild ran through the tail to finish with 8-1-17-5 ,with Fulbourn all out for what seemed a miserable 136.
But when the previous week's centurion Russell was lbw to Wright for a second ball duck, it perhaps did not seem too bad after all.
Thriplow's day turned worse as Wright (10-2-24-6) despatched Smith (13), Staley (11) and Neild (1) and at the other end Still accounted for Evans (1) and Viner (6).
At 46 for 7 it was down to old hands Martin Craze and Dickon Turner, Thriplow's openers for many years.
They defied the Fulbourn attack for a further 17 overs, taking the score to 89.
However, Craze's resistance was finally broken and he was bowled by Kindred for 27.
Care and Morris then came and went, leaving Turner on 18 not out and Thriplow a meagre 91 all out.
