Wisbech saw their Cambs & Hunts Premier League winning streak come to an end last Saturday.
Gary Freear’s men had reeled off three successive Whiting & Partners Division One victories before coming unstuck at Sawston & Babraham.
A solid bowling performance was let down by a poor display with the bat as Wisbech went down by 60 runs, collapsing for 137 in reply to the hosts’ offering of 197.
Brodie Ellis (3-18) and Kieran Haynes (3-33) were the pick of the Wisbech bowlers with the spin of Chris Clark and Freear also earning them a couple of wickets apiece.
But Wisbech failed to fire with the bat on a day when only three men managed double-figures and opener Danny Haynes (59) delivered the only innings of note.

Wisbech slumped from 61-1 to 75-4 before later seeing their final six wickets fall for the addition of just 37 runs.

Wisbech found runs easier to come by last Sunday when earning an emphatic Rutland League victory.
Centurion Josh Bowers played a starring role as they triumphed by 155 runs in a Division One clash at Weldon.
Bowers was responsible for 105 of Wisbech’s posting of 264 before they dismissed their hosts for just 109.
Joe Dunning took 3-43 before Dan Oldfield tore through the Weldon tail with 3-3 from just 3.1 overs.
