Fives & Heronians claimed a 32-run win over Horndon after a high-scoring Essex League Division Two clash at The Paddock.

Put into bat, Fives slipped to 46-2, before Fahad Iqbal put on 128 with Ali Raza (53) and then fell six runs short of his century to make it 196-4.

Ben Britton (28) made a start, while Jake Poulter scored 40 for the hosts and Stuart Knapman added an unbeaten 25 as they closed on a challenging 317-9 from their 50 overs.

Jack Perham struck the first blow with the ball in the Horndon reply, with captain Greg Summers also having success to leave the visitors 50-2.

But a 96-run stand gave Horndon new hope, before Sarfaraz Ahmed (3-34) struck twice in quick succession.

Knapman (2-55) had success at the other end as Horndon slipped to 197-7, to put Fives on top, but some lower-order resistance held them up.

Poulter (2-45) made the breakthrough and Iqbal ran out last man Ryan Madder to dismiss Horndon for 285.
