Canterbury's Matt Jenkinson looks to attack against The Mote
Opener Dominic Chambers carried his bat in making a superb unbeaten century for St Lawrence & Highland Court in the Shepherd Neame Kent League on Saturday.
But his 112 not out was not enough to save Saints from a 64-run defeat by Premier Division leaders Bromley.
Set 278 to win, St Lawrence looked in with a chance after reaching 139-1, thanks to a second-wicket stand of 117 between Chambers and Paul Dixey.
But once Dixey departed for 58, Chambers could only look on as wickets fell rapidly at the other end and St Lawrence were skittled out for 213.
Canterbury remain in the Division 1 drop zone after six-wicket reverse against The Mote. Opener Matt Jenkinson (89) provided the backbone of Canterbury’s innings, which ended on 198 in the final over.
The Mote opener, James Marriott, followed suit with an unbeaten 87 as the Maidstone side passed their target with more than three overs to spare.
