Woodbury were beaten by five wickets when they entertained Chardstock in a Francis Clark Devon League F Division match.
The Woods made a steady start and had 55 on the board with just two wickets down before they slipped to 55-4 with Jimmy Jones one of the wickets to fall for what proved to be the teams highest individual total of 31.
Only three other home batsman recorded knocks of double figures.
Adam Olesky hit 17 from the number seven slot and number six bat James Gibbons struck 13 whilst Ian Hughes, who came in at number nine, was last man out for 10.
Chardstock came into the match having won their last four matches and with their captain Robert Hutching having scored three centuries followed by a 99 not out! However, the skipper opted not to bat in this game and saw his side lose five wickets on their way to a comfortable victory.
Kevin Miller bagged the first wicket, nailing one of the openers with the total on 44 thanks to a catch by Ian Hughes. Miller also claimed a second wicket to finish with 2-24 and Hughes claimed 1-22 whilst teenager Connall Deehan-Jackson sent down 4.5 overs and took 2-28. Tom Greenslade held two catches and Jimmy Jones also showed safe hands.
The game marked the halfway point of the league season and Woodbury find themselves sitting bottom of the bottom division with 76 points, two less than Newton St Cyres.
They begin the second half of their campaign on Saturday with a trip to Culmstock.
