Second-bottom BRACKNELL made short work of four of HADSPEN's big six, but it was not enough as the other two steered the premiers home.
Bowled out for 116 on their home deck with more than eight overs remaining, Bracknell had the third-placed Chieftains teetering at 4-29 when coach Liam Reynolds became the fourth batsman dismissed for single figures.
Anthony Walker, who would finish with 3-35 off eight overs, was the chief destroyer.
But that was as good as it got for Bracknell as opener Damian Woods (51 not out off 66) and middle-order rock Dane Anderson (44 not out off 30) steered the visitors to a six-wicket win.
Tim Walker (21) had top scored for Bracknell as Ashley Smith took 4-25.
Bracknell's loss meant GEORGE TOWN'S first win of the season saw them climb off the bottom of the ladder.
Spanked by Hadspen last week, the Saints bounced back with a hard-earned narrow win over seventh-placed Evandale who were coming off the bye.
Jay Leslie top scored with a run-a-ball 41 as the hosts were bowled out for 132 while Jonty Manktelow (3-28) topped the wicket-takers.
The Panthers put in a dogged chase with Simon Clay top scoring on 32 but the side fell 21 runs short.
Leslie (3-15) completed an excellent day as Gavin Nutting (3-28) also led the way home for the delighted Saints.
Second-placed LONGFORD proved too strong for fifth-placed PERTH, more than doubling their score at Longford Sportsground.
Josh Adams and Dion Blair both scored round 50s - the latter unbeaten - as the Tigers posted 6-174 despite the efforts of Tom McLaren (4-28).
The Perth reply was a stunning scorecard as John Hayes (51 not out off 54 deliveries) carried his bat while McLaren's seven was the only other contribution above three as extras was the second top-scorer.
Kieran Davey 4-14 led the way with Yeshan Wickramarachchi (2-25) and Maxwell Magann (2-19) also among the wickets as Perth were bowled out for 81.
ACL's 9-246 proved too big a hurdle for LEGANA whose chase fell 51 runs short.
An impressive innings of 74 off 80 deliveries, including eight boundaries, from Nashib Nisthar formed the Bluebacks backbone although Cameron Martin (35) Tuan Abdeen (25) and Simon Chappell (22) added a few useful limbs.
Ben Walker (4-31) was the pick of the Legana bowlers.
Keen to bounce back from last week's drubbing by Longford, Legana progressed to 3-130 but when Sam Howe went for 56 the worm turned.
Jarrod Dusautoy added 24 low down the order with four other batsmen making double figures but the hosts were bowled out in the 37th over.
Shaun Woods (3-24) and Nigel Hurst (3-42) did most of the damage.
Unbeaten ladder leaders TREVALLYN had the bye.
