But, thanks to a good partnership between Matt Whitehouse (31) and Andrew Slater (33) and some valuable runs at the end of the innings from Nick Allen (18), Buxton got themselves to 188 all out from their 45 overs.

White Rose never really got going in reply thanks to a fantastic opening spell from Harry Griffin, which included a hat-trick of LBWs, including Kiwi overseas player Cameron Mackay. He finished with 5-17 off 10 overs. Despite a late onslaught from West Hallam's No.10 Harry Porter the visitors finished 150 all out off 43 overs for a well-earned win and 22 points for Buxton.

In other games, Buxton's seconds drew their game against Stanton by Dale with three wickets for Lucas Tattersall while Mark Ainsley scored 39 with the bat. Buxton thirds lost by seven wickets against Hundall CC.

Buxton Ladies Hardball team triumphed over last season’s Division Three West winners Porthill Park in their first league game of the season. Porthill were 149-6 off 30 overs and Buxton 153-6 off 29.2 overs (Lydia Slack 78 not out).​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
