TIM Goodwin was the undisputed man of the match for Babbacombe in their 101-run win over Hatherleigh 2nd XI on the Walls Hill ground.

Goodwin top scored with 84 in Babbacombe’s all-out total of 171. Opener Josh Thompson had been and gone for 30 by the time Goodwin marched out to join skipper Rob Redding.

Redding (12) was the only other Babbacombe batter to make it into double figures. Twenty wides helped hoist the total.

Charlie Bingham (3-33) and Jamie Nielson (3-21) topped the bowling stats for Hatherleigh. Left-arm spinner Cameron Rowlands booked a frugal one for 23 from nine overs.

Hatherleigh were soon in trouble against Thompson’s (3-26) lively seamers with the top three all sent back by him.

Goodwin (4-8) got into the middle order and from then on it was downhill all the way to 70 all out. Take out Rowlands (15), Paul Penberthy (12) and Danny Forrester (11no) and there was not a lot from the rest!

JONNY Keiller helped himself to a maiden league century for Plymouth CS&R that put them on course for a 58-run win over Barton 2nd XI.Plymouth CS&R batsman Jonny Keiller on the way to a century against Barton 2nd XI

Keiller was the dominant partner in stands of 47 with Jamie King (14) and 102 with Adrian Vickery (12) as Civil got to 183 for five in a game reduced to 38 overs each.

While Vickery stoppered up one end for 60 deliveries, none of which went to or over the ropes, Keiller put away eight fours and four sixes during a 118-ball stay.

Barton were all out for 125 in reply with two balls of the 38th over un-bowled.

Matt Trevorrow’s (3-18) early strikes put Barton under pressure and without the efforts of Matt Needham (41) and Riley Calland (24) it could have been an early finish.

Saf Johar (3-35) got into the Barton middle order and M P Arulraj (2-5) accounted for the outliers.

Victory hoisted Civil from sixth to fourth in the table.

JUSTIN Osborne performed the hat-trick for Dartington & Totnes against visiting Abbotskerswell 2nd XI… and still finished on the losing side.

Osborne scored a hat-trick or two on the football field during a long career with Stoke Gabriel, Newton Abbot FC and Buckland Athletic, but had never had one before on the cricket field.Justin Osborne, who claimed a hat-trick for D&T against Abbotskerswell

Nick Guest (37), Tom Heath (54) and Jamie Lock (24) combined to get Abbots up to 182 for five, before Osborne intervened.

Osborne’s three in a row spread across two overs and all bowled, were Lock, Chris Meikle and Tom Askew.

“No one can say I don’t bowl wicket to wicket,” joked Osborne.

Osborne’s 85-year-old father Tony – a stalwart of the pre-merger Dartington club – was on the ground to see his son take three in a row.

Osborne (3-27) was the only D&T bowler to take more than one wicket. Shibin Varghese (1-26) and Mick Rusling (1-35) kept the runs down for nine overs each.

Dartington & Totnes were all out for a meagre 80 in reply with no one scoring more than Jono Lloyd (26). Osborne (17) was next on the list.

James Shephard and Meikle did the early damage as D&T laboured to 57 for five.

Alfie Harrison, a 15-year-old off-spinner, flushed out the bottom half of the order with a five-for-17 haul. The last five poles fell for just three runs added.

IVYBRIDGE 2nd XI defeated Ipplepen 2nd XI by 38 runs to go second behind new leaders Babbacombe in the D Division West.

Plymstock were top of the table going into round three, but only took eight points from their game at Kenn, which was rained-off after three overs with the home side on 13 without loss.

Babbacombe’s win over Hatherleigh 2nd XI preserved their 100 per cent record in the division and took them to the top.

Skipper Sam Northmore (41) made early runs as the Bridge reached 73 for three. Alfie Lewis-Frost, who went in second wicket down, batted through to the end for 53 not out in a 44-over total of 239 for six.

Phil Warwick (33) and Matt Dardis (23) kept Lewis-Frost company in stands of 51 and 36 respectively as the running total crept along.

There were some fireworks at the end when Toby Borrow smashed 50 not out from 24 balls – four sixes, three fours – while putting on 76 unbroken with Lewis-Frost.

Steve Bowden (2-37) and Toby Alsop (2-56) were the only Ipplepen bowlers to claim more than one wicket.

Ipplepen got the worst possible start with Jeff Heath, Adam Peters and Noah Sutton all gone getting as far as 12 in reply. Alex Carter (2-21) took two of the wickets to fall.

Chris Needham (30) and Gareth Penrice with a swift 42 reduced the arrears during a stand of 57. A rain-reduced target of 190 to win looked gettable when Pens were 82 for four.

Losing Needham was a blow Pens never recovered from. Hugo Denman (23), supported by bits and pieces in the bottom half of the order, got Pens to 151 before they ran out of batters.

Sam Kidd (3-35) did the damage to the middle order. Northmore (2-8) dealt with the stragglers.
