Garnons were bowled out for just 126, despite 45 from Alan Jones, in their home match with Weobley .
But James Bolton (5-31) and fine support from Stuart Griffiths rushed out the visitors for only 87.
James O’Brien, with 32, was the top-scorer for second-placed Goodrich who were only able to muster 156-9 at Builth. But it was enough for success as O’Brien collected a couple of wickets which helped peg the Welshmen back to 92.
Bartestree & Lugwardine ’s Dave Robinson (91) was the day’s leading run-getter in Division 1 and his efforts ensured a narrow 14-run success over Glangrwyney.
Half-centuries for Duncan Platford (56) and Kyle Prince (53) brought Luctonians a five-wicket win over Dales.
Kington remain at the foot of the table after a 92-run defeat by Crickhowell.
