Bollington are contemplating relegation from the Cheshire County League after a close defeat at Weaverham on Saturday.
The 11-run loss means that, with just two games remaining, they need a miracle to beat the drop and avoid a second successive relegation.
Bowling first Bolly did well to restrict their hosts to 154-9, Stuart Plant bowling superbly to claim 5-53 with his left-arm spin.
Mo Ali also claimed 2-32 and Syed Khan 1-52.
In reply the Bolly innings stopped and started as nobody was able to support Rick Hough, who fought a lone battle with 58.
Hough was the last man out as Bolly finished agonisingly short of victory on 143 all out.
This Saturday Bolly welcome Alvanley to The Rec after they all but secured their Division?Two status with a surprise victory over Congleton.
