Exmouth 2nd XI were three wicket winners when they travelled to Instow to meet North Devon 2nds in a Tolchards Devon League D Division East match.

A second win in three matches leaves the Maer men in a top three berth and this Saturday (May 26) they host a Countess Wear 1st XI side that sit second bottom having won one and lost two of their opening games.

North Devon won the toss and chose to bat first and they made a half century start before club chairman Mark Davies took a catch off the bowling of Ollie Dawe to see the Maer men make the breakthrough. It proved a key moment for just 47 runs were added, taking the hosts into three figures, with Exmouth claiming four more wickets as Ollie Pugsley bagged a brace, Alex Craib also struck before a first for skipper Lawrence Greenway, which left the home side 101-5.

The sixth wicket added 60 runs before Luke Davies got the breakthrough, courtesy of a catch held by Craib and two further wickets for Greenway before a second from young Davies and the home innings closed on 169-9 after their 45 overs.

The Exmouth run chase got off to an excellent start with Louis Morison and Sam Goodier adding 81 for the opening wicket, which was that of Goodier, caught for 22, scored from 26 deliveries. Immediately after the 100 clicked onto the Instow score board, Exmouth lost a second wicket when Sean Day was sent back, trapped leg before with just four runs to his name and 100 was an unlucky number on the day for the Maer men as they also lost wickets three and four with Morison finally out after a hard-hitting 42 delivery knock of 68, his innings including 11 fours and two sixes and Luke Davies was bowled first ball to leave the reply 100-5.

Skipper Lawrence Greenway was joined by Ryan Schaufler, and the pair added 69 precious runs for the sixth wicket before Greenway departed for a 29-ball, eight boundary, 40.

Ollie Dawe was next in – and out – succumbing to a second ball duck – and, just as three wickets had fallen on 100, they also did with the score on 169 as Schaufler was caught having scored a three boundary 24 from 43 balls faced. That seventh wicket went down with the scores level and it was left to number nine bat Ollie Pugsley to score the winning runs.
