Captain Tom Nicoll and Ravi Patel then took two wickets apiece and a run out left the hosts 132-7, but Sumeet Sharma.
A 59-run stand for the eighth wicket held the visitors up, before Patel (4-44) and Nicoll (3-102) had further success to dismiss the home side for 234, with Sharma unbeaten on 96.
Will Vanderspar (21) and Connor Nurse (22) made starts in reply, but North Midd slipped to 68-4.

Parslow hit a six and 11 fours in his 115-ball knock, but there was a late wobble before Patel and last man Ed Bird sealed a one-wicket win.
