WOODBURY may still be waiting to register a first win of the season but they are certainly closing in on that illustrious happening if last Saturday's game is anything to go by.
The villagers travelled to high flying Kilmington who, just two short seasons ago were plying their trade in the C Division.
After being put in, Woodbury made a horrible start and found themselves four down with just 31 on the board.
David Allen then hit a quick-fire 41 before being the fifth batsman to lose his wicket with the total on 83.
The fall of Allen brought Adam Olesky to the wicket and he put bat to ball with devastating effect plundering a simply awesome century from just 41 balls faced!
The Olesky blitz saw him slam no fewer than thirteen 6's.
He shared a 41-run partnership with George Jarman and then added 101 with Kevin Miller (19) as Woodbury were able to close on 247-8 with Olesky walking off for tea with his bat held aloft and an unbeaten 130 to his name.
The East Devon side were then reduced to 58-3 twenty overs into the reply but then a brace of dropped catches off the bowling of Miller and Martin Cooke, were to proves so costly as the fortunate batsmen then proceeded to build a match winning partnership of 189 to guide their side to a six wicket win off the penultimate ball of an enthralling game.
Miller finished with 2-51 whilst the luck less Cook bowled very well and the other wickets takers were Mark Smale and Ian Hughes.
Woodbury look for a case of seventh time lucky when they host Babbacombe on Saturday.
