Peterborough further stamped their authority on the Hevey NCL Premier Division during another rain-affected afternoon.

The leaders were able to collect a win over Stony Stratford while the weather hindered nearest rivals Northampton Saints in their bid to beat Horton House.

The men from the Soke now lead by 47 points with a top-of-the-table clash a fortnight away.

They needed a stand of 113 between Paul McMahon (56) and Lewis Bruce (59) to help them recover from 59-5 to 193 all out.

McMahon then shone with ball as well picking up figures of 15-9-12-5 as Stony were dismissed for only 75.

Saints were unable to complete their job against Horton despite Alec Swann’s century.

He scored 103 in a total of 200-4 declared in 45 overs.

Finedon Dolben stay in third after 66-run victory over Wollaston.

But despite having Horton 70-7 at the end, the 35 overs lost to the weather proved costly.

Rushton ended 30 runs short of the Academy’s 213 despite Brad Armer’s unbeaten 69 and Burton’s game with Old Northamptonians was unable to produce a result because of rain
