H. Buller (3-25) and R. Brewer (3-38) also starred with the ball for Spaxton, while J. Prior (24) top scored for Wembdon Academy.
Elsewhere in the division, Bridgwater Sports were emphatic five-wicket winners at Watchet, thanks to an unbeaten 42 from C. Savage.

In Division 6, a match-winning century from J. Gardner saw Chilton Polden ease to a 122-run victory over Purnells.
Gardner (106) and L. Birch (53) took Chilton to an imposing 268-9 before P. Kennard (5-36) ensured Purnells only reached 146 in reply.

Rossiter (5-38) rattled through Ashbrittle to restrict them to 224-9, and Bridgwater A looked well set in reply, but D. Hallaran (84) and E.
Knight (21) were unable to see them to the win.
