As a batting side chasing 278-7, Keith Bell made 34 and Rowcliffe 22, while Ellis Turner (25) and Rich Billows (10 not out) ensured Nailsea at least batted through all 40 overs to finish on 130-9.
Opening bat Dave Blake for Avonside was 126 not out with Matt Willie also getting his 50 with some big hitting
Fielding practice will take place this week for Nailsea prior to Ston Easton arriving for another home game next week.
