Budleigh Salterton II salvaged what they could from a 125-run defeat by Exeter II at Ottermouth, writes Conrad Sutcliffe.
Tom Richardson belted 115 for Exeter in their tally of 347 for five.
Richardson shared stands of 212 for the second wicket with Mike Wilkinson (67) and 50 with Charlie Kidson, who went on to make 66 not out, 50 of which came in boundaries.
Joe Marley’s nine overs bowled for 37 runs conceded stood out in the Budleigh stats.
Budleigh started badly with opener Greg Evans bowled in the first over by Nick Horne (3-32).
Surviving opener Neil Murrin (28) and Donovan Robinson (62) got the score up to 99 for two and from then on it was a case of gaining as many bonus points as possible.
Luke Jefferson (23) and Chris Battin (22) did their bit to get Budleigh to 222 for six and maximum batting points.
