Last season's champs Holwell proved too strong for the 2006 runners-up Luton and Houghton Town.
Holwell rattled up 267-5 with Dixon Franchua making an unbeaten 57, Steve Paola 54no, Adam Parkins 50 and Nigel Pointing 47.
Houghton were all out for 126 in reply with Franchua taking 3-20 and Orville Batson 2-18.
Baldock snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in a 15-run loss to Great Gaddesden.
Gaddesden were 117-9 off 40 overs after an excellent bowling performance with Logan Newman taking 3-11, Alistair Jones 2-28 and Ben Diplock 2-28.
Their reply was initially excellent with James Peacock (34) and Mark Lafferty (23) taking them to 67-1.
But an astounding collapse against accurate bowling saw Baldock lose their last nine wickets for 35 runs!
