Clyst St George 2nd XI went down by 20 runs when they met Bovey Tracey III at Buckfastleigh.
The home side batted first and all the Clyst St George bowlers did well as Bovey were bowled out for 169 in 41.1 overs.
Andrew Donovan led the bowling honours with a splendid return of 4-31 from 6.1 overs. Harry Attwater (2-29 from eight overs), Ed Chudleigh (2-32 from nine) and Paul Laverick (1-14 from nine), were the other wicket takers.
Harry O’Dwyer and Richard Coe led the Clyst St George reply and took the run chase to 65 before O’Dwyer was the first wicket to fall, out for a fine knock of 35 that included six fours.
Coe was fourth man out with the total on 87, but his contribution of 29 was the ‘best of the rest’ as the reply eventually ended on 149 all out after 41.5 overs.
The third best offering by a visiting batsman was the 19 struck by number eight Paul Laverick who clammed two sixes and one four.
The other double figure scores were the 11 from number 10 bat Harry Mullins and a knock of 11 also from Andrew Donovan.
