Brondesbury captain James Overy was disappointed with his side’s bowling display in their defeat to Hornsey on Saturday.
After winning the toss, Hornsey elected to field but Brondesbury got off to a good start through Steve Martin who hit 74 before he was caught.
Number three batsman Max Hope added another 49 to his side's total before they declared on 182-6 after 35 overs.
Lesbourne Edwards then hit 48 for Hornsey in bat before Joseph Emanuel added 65 to help them reach 183 in 32 overs despite Sam Smith taking four wickets from his nine overs.
Overy was frustrated his side could not see out a win after a decent score in bat.
