Dunmow chose the perfect time to secure back-to-back victories with an excellent team effort against third-placed Easton.
Winning the toss and batting first, Dunmow batted well in partnerships against an Easton attack that contained the Two Counties Division Two’s leading wicket taker in C Wells.
The most notable contributions came from last week’s centurion Oli Rooney (36) and Josh Down (46), but perhaps most significantly in the context of the match a rapid fire and aggressive 40 from Nick Kesingland.
With skipper Paul Reid guiding the tail with 21 not out, Dunmow posted a competitive if not match winning 203-9 from their 45 overs.
Dunmow had shown Easton the way through building partnerships, and their failure to do this was ultimately the reason for their defeat.

Baz Sewell also maintained his excellent wicket taking form, claiming his second five wicket haul in as many weeks (5-34) and to move to 50 wickets for the season including the wickets he has taken for Essex over 50s.
While the partnership of Lloyd (33) and Sarangain (27) caused some nerves, ultimately the rising run rate enabled Dunmow to claim all 20 points and move up to seventh in the league table.
On Saturday, Dunmow will look to make it three wins in a row as they travel to eighth placed Exning.
