Understrength Bentley suffered a disappointing defeat at bottom club Walthamstow in Hamro Foundation Essex League Division Three.
Having decided to bat first, they posted a modest 186 thanks largely to brothers Phil Coleman (65) and Matt Coleman (28).
And Walthamstow reached their target with five wickets in hand in the 44th over, as Phil Coleman (3-23) claimed the bowling plaudits for Bentley, who welcome Barking this weekend.
It was a similar story for the seconds, who scored 187 against Great Waltham thirds in Mid-Essex League Division Three.
Captain Ollie Gordon (65) led the way at the top of their order, with Liam Rawlinson (23) giving support.
