Stoke Newington enjoyed a hat-trick of wins on the Bank Holiday weekend.
Headstone Manor were the opposition for the first team, who were looking to avoid a second successive defeat.
And after being put into bat, Stoke saw Abul Nalla trapped lbw in the second over.
Hodayne Bryce hit out in a 41-run stand for the second wicket, with captain Scott (42) maintaining momentum and Joel escaping a dismissal to reach a half-century.
Pete holed out to deep mid-wicket for 84, before Josh Harrison and Ishaq Raheel chipped in with cameo 20s and Khpalwak Zazai scored 19 in the last over to lift the total to 285-8.
Zabe Mohammad made early inroads into Manor's batting line-up on the way to a 3-17 haul, while udner-17 Asad-Nabi Momand bowled with good pace but went unrewarded.
Irfan Momand nabbed a brace, as Bryce and Raheel held on to good catches, and Zazai came into the attack to claim 4-4 in seven overs.
Raheel got in on the act to leave Manor nine down, before Zazai wrapped up a crushing 218-run victory.
