Devon and Somerset U17s met at Barnstaple and Pilton Cricket Club for their first match together of the season.
Devon won the toss and elected to bat. On what looked like a batters' paradise, Devon found it difficult to penetrate the Somerset fielder and boundaries were it appeared difficult to score, only seven managed the boundary in the Devon's innings. Daisy Meadowcroft sadly bowled out on 46 and Holly Elsworth (37), runout were the top scorers.
Devon were bowled out for 145 in the 38th over.
Somerset's reply was very positive and though their first wicket was to fall at the hands of Sophie Florides (5-0-27-1) in the very first over, runs flowed after and they managed victory over Devon in just the 23rd over!
Somerset won by 7 wickets.
