LITTLE Downham looked to have wrapped up the points when they're scintillating bowling attack skittled Somersham for just 80 runs.

Peter Baker (3-5) was manfully supported by Ryan Duffield (2-14) as a number of the home bowlers found success, leaving their batsmen the relatively simple task of polishing off the win.
