Dunmow got off to a bad start in the field when Andy Strong was hit in the face by a bobbling ball and had to go to hospital for stitches, which left Dunmow one man and a spinner short.
A brave display saw Anu Weerasinge bowl two excellent spells to finish with 3-29 from 10 overs and Dave Gypps to take 2-24 from seven overs but despite this, Hockerill achieved their target in the 34th over for the loss of six wickets.
They travel to High Beach next week.
