Budleigh Salterton 2nd XI retained their place at the top of E Division East in the Tolchards Devon Cricket League with an incredible demolition of mid-table Throverton. 
The destruction ahead must have felt like a distant hope when openers Henry Collison (0) and Marc Troman (7) were both bowled by Erin Vukusic. 
Steve Booth then arrived in the middle and set about producing a memorable innings of 111, with Luke Jefferson (36), Theo Northover (67) and Nick Bolt (56 no) providing support at the other end. 
Chasing a massive 321 to win, Throverton were soon on the back foot when Sean Butler bowled Andrew Daldorph for 1. Alex James took the wickets of the other opener and number three Grant Squire, caught by Jack Garner. 
A 29 from Henry Squire was the only Throverton resistance, as Budleigh skittled out their visitors for just 70, with Butler pick of the bowlers on 4-24.
