Bideford captain Alex Hannam said it was hard to find fault with his sideâ€™s six-wicket win over visiting Chudleigh.
Mark Solway opened up with an anchormanâ€™s 52 â€“ he was fifth out on 130 â€“ and Will Heather went on to make 61 in Chudeighâ€™s total of 187 for nine.
Bideford seamer Alex Hannam (3-34) came back at the end to boost his figures after the Fords â€“ dad James (2-36) and son Jack (3-14) - had gone through the middle order.
Tom Brend went cheaply to Mark Russell, but a stand of 84 between James Ford (52) and James Hayter (70) put Bideford in command.
Ollie Hannam chipped in with 39 not out and is 72-run partnership with Hayter killed the game as a contest.
Veteran Ian Hayter had plenty to be proud about as he had never previously played with sons James and Julian in a first-team fixture.
Skipper Hannam said: â€œI was really pleased with how everyone played.Â We never allowed Chudleigh to get away from us on a really fast-scoring pitch.
â€œJack bowled really well and was the main reason we were able to keep them to below 190.
â€œI thought it could be a difficult chase but the way James Ford and James Hayter batted they made it look very easy. Oliver finished the chase off well at the end.â€
Losing captain Will Heather said: â€œQuite simply, we were outplayed in all departments and Bideford were the better side.â€
*BrauntonÂ went past Exeter 2nd XI into third place in the C Division East after beating Sandford by five wickets.
Ross Donaldson (35) top scored for Sandford with 35 and chip-ins from Chris Blake (27) and Rob Stoyle (27) got the total up to 146 all out.
Four Braunton bowlers took two wickets each: James Lake, Steve Moore, Alfie Huxtable and Andy Norman andÂ young batsman Jack Whittaker (41no) got the chase up and running asÂ Huxtable (37) lent a helping hand.
Steve Moore, Brauntonâ€™s senior player, said a lot of the hard work was done with the ball.
â€œWe bowled in the right areas on a decent wicket, backed up by a really impressive fielding performance,â€ said Moore.
â€œYoung Whittaker batted very patiently for his 40 not out.Â Credit to Sandford. They made us work hard for our win and young James Theedom bowled really well and looks a very talented cricketer.â€
*Skipper Lee Cole believes his Barnstaple & Pilton side is showing signs of improving despite yet another defeat.
They remain bottom of the D Division East after a 44-run reversal by Chardstock, but Cole is optimistic his side will soon be on the up.
â€œIt is always disappointing to lose a game, but we are slightly improving and hopefully a win is just around the corner,â€ said Cole.
â€œWhen we are bowling we are bowing too many four balls and when we bat we need to protect our wicket better.
â€œPlayers getting in need to go on and score big runs as 30 and 40 is not good enough.â€
Rob Hutchings (88) and Alex Watson (52) were Chardstockâ€™s primary run scorers in a total of 243 for seven.
Joe Hastie (4-62) was B&Pâ€™s leading wicket taker.
Matt Newton top scored for B& with 35 in their reply of 200 for nine. Fifty extras â€“ 48 of them wides â€“ boosted the B&P total.
Hutchings, Watson and James Rockett took two wickets each for Chardstock.
â€œFair play to Chardstock they deserved their win and it was a good game played in very good spirit,â€ said Cole.
