ENFIELD can still seal at least a top four spot - but more nail-biting games like last Sunday will not do captain David Bracewell any good.
The Dill Hall Lane side faced Nelson and managed just 86 all out, a wholesale collapse after being 77-3 - with five wickets falling for two runs.
However, Worsley Cup champions Nelson also struggled and, at 53-5, the rain came down and they managed just one more over after that - with Nelson needing four to win off it.
David Bracewell slipped on the fourth ball of that over and the umpire decided that was it - and the points went to Enfield who lie in seventh place, 16 points behind third place Burnley.
"I don't know what happened to our batting," said the skipper. "We just collapsed and the last six wickets went for eight or nine runs.
"We should have been getting at least 130 on a difficult wicket but it all went drastically wrong.
"The weather did save us really and it was a deluge. I decided to bowl that final over as I didn't want Alviro (Petersen) or Bernard (Reidy) getting injured as they are our best bowlers. I put my life on the line!
"But we got the win and the table is still wide open with leaders Ramsbottom losing on Sunday - that has brought Burnley and Bacup back into it.
"It is, though, still the case that you can win two and be second or third or lose two and be down near the bottom.
"That's why we have to stay on our guard. The good thing is we have people playing for their places in the Inter-League Trophy final next weekend so there is still plenty to play for."
While the other three Hyndburn clubs have re-signed their professionals, Alviro Petersen won't be returning to Dill Hall Lane.
"He told us at the start of this season that he was getting married next year and wouldn't be back," said the captain.
"It has been hard as Alviro is a great professional but missed a month because of international commitments and the South African League haven't released their fixtures yet so we are not sure if he will have to go home before the end of our season which would be a blow for us.
"It is not that often that pros get longer than three years anyway and this is his third year so we will be getting a fresh face who hopefully will carry on the work we have started here and keep moving us forwards."
Accrington also celebrated a close victory over Todmorden in another game hampered by the weather.
Accrington made 179-8 with Matt Wilson top-scoring with 36 and Nishit Shetty and Graeme Sneddon chipping in well.
However, like Rishton the week before, Accrington decided to introduce some young blood to their first team and 15-year-old debutant Simon Hanson made an entertaining knock of 26 - including four boundaries.
Todmorden began their reply and were going along nicely until rain stopped the game in the 26th over with the Centre Vale side on 108-1 - six runs short of their rain-adjusted target.
Rishton had to weather a storm - but it was of their own making as Bacup's bowling star Chris Cairns destroyed their batting order.
The New Zealander took 7- 26 including the prized wicket of skipper Peter Sleep for a duck, as Rishton made just 79.
Garth Wyse took two wickets in reply but a six from opener James Cunliffe steered Bacup passed the tally with eight wickets to spare - and moved them within two points of leaders Ramsbottom.
And Church lost the battle at the bottom against Colne and both now hold the unwanted distinction of propping up the Lancashire League table.
It was another close call as Church made 159 with Phil Sykes top-scoring with 39 and Oliver Rigby making 27.
Colne were struggling on 53-5 when the heavens opened but battled back with a new target of 105.
They needed five for victory with no wickets to spare but they battled on and hit a boundary off the penultimate ball to seal maximum points.
