Stony Stratford are on the brink of relegation from the Northants Premier League after losing to Horton House on Saturday.
With just a game remaining, Alex Strong’s side need victory with full bonus points to avoid the drop, while hoping Wollaston pick up nothing.
Horton House bowler Mark Wolstenholme took 5-45 as Stony’s top order crumbled, with only Strong’s 47 making a real impact as his side were bowled out for 119.
Strong then took 4-43 with the ball, aided by Dean Bryce’s 3-40 to take it right to the wire.But Horton House held on to their final wicket and edged over the line on 120-9.
Stony face midtable Brixworth next Saturday.
