Budleigh Salterton II came off badly second best at Ottery St Mary, who defeated them by nine wickets, writes Conrad Sutcliffe.

Will Oxland top sored for Budleigh with 42 off 53 balls – six fours and a six in his knock – in a total of 133 all out.

Skipper Adam Jones will have been upset by the way the bating collapsed as Budleigh were 120 for five before he got out to Oliver West,

West (3-14) and Jody Clements (3-17) blew away the lower half of the order after Joe Birch (2-18) posed problems at the top.

Ottery had the runs knocked off inside 24 overs. They were never in any danger of losing after openers West (37) and Alex Clements put on 87.

Clements (50) and Dan Flower (19) were the not-out batsmen at the end.

Budleigh host Exeter this Saturday.
