Mundford's season went from bad to worse, as they were soundly beaten by Great Witchingham.
The game left Mundford with much to think about before this weekend's trip to Ashmanhaugh.
After being asked to bat first on a damp track, Mundford were hoping for a solid start but Harrison scored with his usual batting flair and after scoring 12 quick runs, saw his middle stump lying on the floor.
At the other end Gooderham was calmly accumulating his runs despite the carnage at the other end.

It's all good and well winning the toss, but it takes a good team to be able to use the conditions and put the batsmen under pressure, which is exactly what the Witchingham bowlers did.
After tea, the openers came out with the intention of finishing the game early, with threatening clouds rolling in.
After 10 overs, Witchingham in their reply were 60 for no wicket, taking advantage of some wayward opening bowling.
It wasn't until Mundford's spin twins, M Leeder and P Brassett, were introduced that the run rate started to decrease.
Even though the result was never in doubt, some respectability was restored as Mundford claimed three wickets for 16 runs, nevertheless Witchingham won the game in the 24th over leaving Mundford with much to ponder before this weekend's s trip to Ashmanhaugh.
