BRAUNTON were on the end of a two-ton assault in their 89-run defeat at Plymouth.

Aussie batterer Luke Jury hit 101 and James Toms batted from start to finish for 118 not out as Plymouth totalled 255 for four.

Premier new boys Braunton were never seriously in the hunt when they batted and were finally dismissed for 166. Aussie import Ben Reichstein went in at one for seven and was eventually removed at 128 for nine.

Even then Plymouth had to shift last pair Wayne Manning and Walid Iqbal, whos used up a dozen overs adding 38 for the final wicket as they tried to save the game.

Matt Hooper led the Plymouth bowling effort with three wickets and there were two each for Nick Read, John Parker and Dave Burke.

Disappointed Braunton skipper Jon Baglow said: "We are not competitive enough at the moment.

"We dropped Toms three times before he got to 15, but apart from that it was damage limitation in the field.

"It would be nice to have a proper selection meeting, rather than picking those that are around.

"It is such a difference to last season and so far we have not been able to maintain any consistnecy.

"Hopefully that will change over the next couple of weeks. We need to improve in every aspect of our game.
