HATHERLEIGH stumbled badly in the C Division promotion race when they lost a 40-pointer with Thorverton by two wickets.

Nick Barton (3-40), Josh Henderson (3-41) and Will Denford (2-45) shared the wicket taking as the North Devon side were bowled out for 189.

Mark Lake (34) and Sean Forester (29) had runs off the bat while Thors assisted by throwing in 53 extras.

George Greed (58) and Will Denford (27) led the Thors to victory by ratcheting up 75 for the fourth wicket.

Hathereigh needed a win to close the gap on second-placed Thorverton. Losing means they are 27 points in arrears down in fourth and have to get past Clyst Hydon, who beat Kingsbridge by a similar margin to go past them.
