Loddon 147-8 beat Belton 141-9 by six runs.
Loddon won the toss and decided to bat first, but the top order struggled to get going with Belton's opening bowlers dispatching the first four wickets in 20 overs with the score at only 32.
A Baker and D Debenham managed to hold a good partnership running well together between the wickets until A Baker (20) misjudged a call for two and was run out in the 31st over with the score at 68.
D Debenham (57) was eventually trapped lbw, C Baker (3) and K Pitman (21) put on the desperately needed extra runs at the close of the innings, Loddon finishing on 147-8.
C Baker got off to a flyer getting the inside edge of opening batsman S Day excellently held by stand in keeper K Johnstone with Baker's fourth ball.
Baker and Wells bowled a nagging tight line and Wells picked up the wicket of S Ali painfully held by D Debenham midwicket. Loddon's K Jones picked up three wickets, two caught behind by keeper K Johnstone and one bowled, S Nunn also picked up three wickets one caught by C Baker at long off and one by A Wells sharply taken at slip and the third bowled.
