Having been put into bat, Sway made slow progress with openers Tim Noble (48) and Alex Hall (22) batting valiantly against some accurate bowling and putting on 45.
From then on Sway struggled to a disappointing 98 amid a combination of indifferent batting, decent bowling and the tricky surface.
Sam Thomson, the former Bashley (Rydal) and Dorset offie, with 3-6 off six overs and Charlie May (3-20) excelled with the ball.
When Winton were reduced to 24-3 – that’s one more than the entire team scored at & Crofton the previous week - through Hugh Bernard and Jon Waller, the visitors had a sniff; however, despite an excellent showing from Dan Bailey, with two wickets, and smart catches from Noble and Neil Prince, it ended up being a dispiriting away day for the deposed HL leaders.
Joe May (27) stepped in before John Duke (21) and Nick Nineham (26) got Winton across the line.
Sway’s first defeat enabled Havant II to climb to top place – a position they could easily hold on to with only Longparish and Easton & Martyr Worthy left to play.
Fareham might well have complicated matters further had their home match with Old Basing gone the distance. They were flying at 232-7 at Bath Lane when play was abandoned an over before the tea break.
A Wimble, run out with 91, and Sam Stoddart (78) shared a 154-run stand.
So, after 14 rounds of fixtures, Fareham & Crofton have still only managed to complete FOUR matches. If they win their last three games against Lymington II, Burridge II and St Cross Symondians III they could feature in the promotion race !
Sam Collins struck a timely and back to form 83 not out as a strengthened Bournemouth chased down Longparish’s 196 to win by seven wickets.
Mike Taplin hit 80 for Parish, with Tom Robinson taking 4-37 for Bournemouth, who included Dorset left-hand all-rounder Simon Woodruff in their ranks and struck a boundary strewn 78.
Have kit, will play Jonny Coombs (24) opened. His ambition this season is to play in all five of Bournemouth’s Hampshire League sides. Only the fourth team have so far gone without his charismatic input.
Lymington II also called up Southern Premier Division personnel for the trip to soggy Hursley Park, where Dan Cox made the most of his trip from the Isle of Wight to make 69 before the rains came.
St Cross Symondians III found themselves in the drop zone for the first time when Easton & Martyr Worthy beat them by seven wickets.
Wobbling at 46-6, St Cross reached 142 through James Burridge (35) and Brad Aldridge, but saw their reduced target score of 122 blown away as Nick Boulton (48*) and Ben Stanbrook (37) swept EMW home with stacks of time to spare.
Desperate for win points, Andover seconds were denied at Alton, where the Brewers were 67-5 when play was abandoned.
Compton & Chandler's Ford were washed out completely against Burridge II.
