The morning session foursomes became a war of attrition between the two teams, with the opening match ending in a 5&4 loss for Elliott Fellows (Bridgnorth) and Harry Watts (Ludlow), playing against a scratch handicapper and Tommy Fleetwood's stepson Murray Craig.
However, S&H soon pegged them back with a 2&1 victory for Ben Steventon and Stanley Lin (both Telford).
Back came Cheshire with a narrow win 2up against Ed Muttit Jones (Ludlow) and Brodie Miller (Telford), but Jack Dirkin (Telford) and Charlie Slater (Wrekin) managed to steady the ship with a battling half, before the final pairing of Rhys Thomas (Llanymynech) and Harry Slater (Wrekin) came home with a 4&3 win to keep the scoring level.
The S&H boys started on fire after lunch with three consecutive wins from Fellows (3&2), Watts (3&2) and Steventon (4&3) to forge ahead.
This was soon complemented by a battling half from Stanley Lin to keep S&H in control, but Cheshire were not finished and battled back to take the next four singles to take a one-point lead into the final 2 games.
Thomas was leading coming down the 18th and had two chances to take the contest before Cheshire managed to scramble a half on a tricky green, but Slater handed out a 5&4 thrashing to his opponent to halve the match, 7.5-7.5.
The S&H men's first team played their first match of the season against Warwickshire at Oswestry, losing 9-6.
The morning foursomes went Warwickshire way, with the only point for S&H coming from Jon Devereux and Alex Allen.
The single matches started with Tom Kerr fighting back from two holes down after seven to win 4&3.
There were also wins for Nick Evans and Sean McCarthy and four halved matches from Ian Jenner, Allen, Devereux and Craig Simmons.
The overall result was a win for Warwickshire 9pts-6pts
The S&H men's second team was away to Warwickshire's seconds at Handsworth, also going down 9-6.
The morning foursomes went well for S&H, with Jon Houlston & Jack Edwards, Dave Fish & Darren Humphries, Cam Probert & Morgan Radziejowski all winning and the duo of George Wall & Glyn McKenna taking a half.
