North Devon two Beaford v Belstone A top-of-the-table clash between Belstone and Beaford served up a fascinating game of changing fortunes last Sunday. Beaford got off to a flying start taking 21 from the first two wayward overs which also saw Belstone skipper Scott Tremain colliding painfully with the scoreboard while saving a boundary off the first ball of the game. They continued to score at six an over with Ali McMillan hitting a string of boundaries but eventually Belstone began to take wickets at crucial moments just as partnerships were threatening. Good contributions from Peter McMillan (19) and Robin Lake (19) helped the score reach 150 for four before Ali McMillan was out for a fine 56, the first of four wickets for Dan Fogerty. Richard Turner kept the score mounting with a run-a-minute 31 but the rest of the lower order did not contribute much as the last six wickets fell for 49 runs, leaving Beaford all out for 199 with four overs of the 45 unused. After losing a wicket in the first over the Belstone pair of Scott Tremain and Sam Ewen moved serenely into top gear with a classy partnership of 106 in 18 overs to put the visitors well ahead of the asking rate . However, they were both out in quick succession, Tremain having hit four fours and a six in his 40 and Ewen eight 4s in a run-a-minute 58. Lake (9-1-27-2) and Turner (9-1-40-3) put the match back in the melting pot with more middle order wickets as Belstone subsided to 133 for six. With plenty of overs in hand Ryan Dennis (14), Chris Walpole (23 not out) and Tom Boother (21 not out) could afford to wait for the bad balls and eventually they knocked off the 67 runs needed with ten balls to spare, thus cementing Belstone's place at the top of the table. T20 Buckley Cup Belstone v Tedburn St Mary Belstone got back on the winning track in the T20 Buckley Cup with a surprisingly easy seven-wicket victory over Tedburn St Mary. Once openers Allison and Lewis were out with 25 on the board in the sixth over Tedburn had no answer to the home attack with all the bowlers sharing wickets, Tom Fogerty two for five, Sam Ewen two for 21 and Matt Dennis two for seven. Pride of place went to Callum Mallett who took four for 13 on his return to the game after two months out with a leg injury. This left Tedburn all out for just 49 which was quickly knocked off in 11 overs with Richard Drake top-scoring on 28 not out.
