Despite losing both openers cheaply, the visitors took full advantage of first use of the excellent batting strip as they amassed 248-3 in their 40 overs. Luke Bridger scored an unbeaten 89 and was well supported by Jacob Barnes (50). Steve Brookes (42no) then added the finishing touch with a typically robust knock.
Oscar Fas was unlucky not to add more wickets to his 1-22.
Henlow were 79-4 in reply but a fifth wicket partnership of 130 between Pete Gratrick, whose fantastic innings of 90 included 14 fours and a six, and skipper Danny Barker (41 not out) offered hope of an unlikely victory. They eventually closed on 217-5.
Felix Cullip (2-33) was in good form and was well supported by youngster Kieran Jones who bowled his five overs for just ten runs.
A fourth wicket stand of 156 between Sameen Safi and Kai Griffiths-Shilton steered Caldecote to a 79 run success over Great Barford and Mowsbury.
The pair came together with the score on 66-3. Safi scored 77 with Griffiths-Shilton smashing 17 4s and two 6s in a score of 115 to propel their side to 298-5. K Kariyawasam, Sareer Safi, Karl Madden and Sam Oakins took two wickets apiece as the visitors were skittled in 41 overs.
