Preston lost by six wickets to Luton Town and Indians in the Saracens Herts League Division Two.
After posting 166-8, Preston could not stop their opponents knocking off the runs with just four wickets down.
* The seconds won by 10 wickets against their counterparts from St Margaretsbury. Excellent bowling from Dave Allen (4-53) and Dave Fleckney (3-54) kept Saints to 212-9.
Preston's openers went about the run chase in spectacular fashion.
Matt Burleigh's classy 85no was somewhat overshadowed by fellow opener Casey Walker who made his maiden century for the club ending up with 120no.
The pair set a new club record opening partnership of 215.

The thirds were comprehensively beaten by an eager Rickmansworth fourth team.
Ricky took first knock and eased their way to 215 all out in 40 overs despite the fact local referee Andy Crawford sent six batsmen back to the pavilion for 57 runs.
He received little support from the other end, however, although Richard Starkey did bag 3-44. In reply, Preston never got going with 69-year-old Chris Newell top scoring on 21, next best 19 from Simeon Luxton, as they crumbled to a disappointing 99 all out.
The fourth team lost to Stevenage sixths after restricting the home side to 137-7, youngster Thomas Mercer bagging four wickets. In reply, only in-form Dylan Wright (35) tested the scorers as Preston fell 32 runs short on 105 all out.
