Exmouth 2nd XI failed to cash in on their D Division (East) opening day win at Barnstaple when Heathcoat defeated them by 127 runs.
Lee Dixon rattled out seven fours and four sixes on his way to 80 off 57 balls in Heathcoat’s total of 245 for seven in 45 overs.
Along the way there was a stand of 119 with James Onley-Gregson (62).
Exmouth’s new signing, Sean Day (2-30), led the bowling effort. Alex Craib and Ryan Schauffler both bowled tidy spells.
Day then top scored with 58 in Exmouth’s reply of 118 all out. He went in at 21 for one and was ninth out on 117. No one else made more than a dozen.
Dixon (2-17) softened up the early order then Paul Elliott (4-35) dealt with potential troublemakers in the middle order.
