Waldron followed up his 75 with 5-18, while Andrews made 44 and took 4-21 as GDF made 197 and bowled out Third Class for 69 as only Alvin Castello with 20 offered token resistance.
Ricardo Ghisawan had 4-37 and got support from Teekaram George who picked up 2-65 in a losing cause for Third Class.
At Everest, Trevon France followed his half century and seven-wicket haul against GCC at Bourda last weekend at First Division level with a shot-filled 70 decorated with five fours and five sixes, while Darshan Persaud made 36 and Treatlon Liverpool chipped in with 25 as GYO reached 233-8.
Andre Foster was the pick of the bowlers with 3-40 while Rayson Gill had 2-59 and Rickford Mohamed took 2-40 for Diplomats, who fell for 114.

At DCC, GNIC beat Bel Air Rubis by 33 runs in their debut NBS game.
