Woodford Wells earned the Essex League Division One bragging rights over South Woodford with a comfortable win.
Captain Jonathan Gaffney put the hosts into bat after winning the toss and saw opposite number Joe Craddock fall to George Ellis after opening partner Michael Browne retired out.
Gareth James got rid of Trishan Sivathasan for a third-ball duck, before Krishan Vadher was run out to make it 33-3.
Nabel Shaikh (2-21) nipped out Jamie Carroll and Harry Neicho, before Christian Hall (2-15) also bagged a brace and Ellis (2-24) and James (2-8) returned to mop up the innings for 83 in 33 overs.
Saihaj Jaspal hit back to dismiss Joe Johnson and Mitch McGee with successive deliveries in the Wells reply, before Harry Shirt trapped Tim Jolly leg before wicket.
But George Styles (27 not out) and James (20 not out) put on an unbroken 45-run stand to see the visitors to their modest target without further loss in the 18th over.
