High Roding came back down to earth this weekend with both the 1st and 2nd XIs suffering defeats.
The 1st team, without three regular batsmen, hosted Great Baddow.
Baddow won the toss and made hay on a flat and even wicket.
Huartson made 106 and Gunalan 101 not out including a six to complete his century as Baddow hit 290-5 off their 45 overs.
In reply Roding lost Adam Holdgate to a slip catch, which brought Mel and Reece Hussain together at the crease.
You may also want to watch:
These two steadily built the innings and were keeping up the run rate reaching 120 off 16 overs.
They were both to fall to good balls, Mel (73) and Reece (68), and the innings from looking on course began to falter.
