Horncastle's 182 for seven also featured 41 from Julian Loveley, as Akhil Sebastian took three for 39 and Mo Ayub kept things tight with one for 38 from 15 overs.

Outcasts' relegation concerns intensified with a seven-wicket home defeat against Holton-le-Clay.
Performance of the day in Division Two came from lowly Alkborough 2nds, who recorded a seven-wicket win over promotion hopefuls Keelby.
Alkborough have been showing improved form of late, and again their victory was based on impressive bowling by Andy Williamson (five for 33) and skipper Rich Kirman (three for 15).
Keelby were dismissed for 70, of which Matt Bevis scored 29.
And that was exactly the number of runs made by Alkborough top scorer Dave Kilgallon, as the home team won in 20 overs.
Skipper Paul Rocks played his part as promotion hopefuls Messingham 2nds squeezed home by one wicket on their visit to Owmby
Rocky took three for 20 in eight overs to help peg back the Todmoor team to 169 for eight.
Messingham openers Adam Cook (89) and Ian Dawson (34) batted well, but the middle-order failed to add much at all and it was left to tail-enders Sheldon Sekul, Paul Baxter and Chris Dawson to ease their team over the finishing line.
Omwby's Dave Hill (four for 47) returned the best figures of the match.
