THE Bohea Field promotion mission remains very much ongoing into Saturday's final game of the 2009 Francis Clark Devon League B Division season this coming weekend, this after Clyst St George banked all but one of the points available in a seven wicket success at home to Kingsbridge.
The visitors batted first and laboured to 147-9 as Dom Hazel (3-14) and Chris Cook (3-31), worked in tandem and then Chris Ferro (58), Pete Andrews (35) and the Man of the Match, Cook (41no), saw the side to a comprehensive victory.
The Bohea Field win, and news of Tavistock being forced into a losing draw against Bideford, means that the two sides head in to the final match day with Clyst needing to bank six more points from their game at Plymstock than Tavistock do in their match at home to Barnstaple.
It has been a magnificent chase of the top two so far for Graham White's men and one more monumental effort and, with a little bit of lady luck, they can be lining up in the second tier of County cricket next summer.
Meanwhile, the club's 2nd XI duly completed their survival mission, indeed, they are now likely to complete the campaign some 40 odd points above the drop zone.
Their latest success was a three wicket win against Ivybridge who were restricted to 161-9, with Paul Richardson and Paul Laverick each claiming three wicket hauls.
Laverick and Richardson then completed fine all round efforts with 24 and 28, respectively, bettered only by the bat of Richardson, who hit 28 as Clyst sealed a three wicket win at 162-7.
Oz Besley's men complete their season with a Saturday home game against Brixham.
Meanwhile, Pete Andrews narrowly failed to put himself in pole position to lift the Cornwood Cup, the honour bestowed on the Clyst batsmen responsible for the highest individual total during the season, when he was dismissed on 109 in the friendly game against the English Chess Federation.
Steve May still leads the way with his 112 against Dunsford, the club's other centurions this summer have been, Alan Welsh (101no against Seaton) and skipper Graham White (100no against Exeter).
