North Devon bt Cornwood by 73 runs
NORTH Devon won away from home for the first time this season when they triumphed by 73 runs at Cornwood.
North Devon have won three of their last four starts to rise up the table to third. They totalled 236 all out in the last of their 50 overs.
Somerset’s Jamie Overton slammed 51 off 29 balls after coming in at 150 for five, to give North Devon some oomph in the last few overs.
A lot of the batting damage had already been done by then in stands constructed round Barney Huxtable’s 55 at the top of the order.

Max Curtis and Tom Allin put on 40 after Huxtable went to Matt Skeemer and before Overton started getting on with it.
Cornwood were all out for 162 in reply and their leading batter was Jackson Thompson, who had 45 of the first 61 on the board.

After Thompson went to Matt Westway to a catch on the boundary, Cornwood found Overton hard to get away and didn’t get much change from Allin or Sam Witheridge either.
Skipper Jason Hall (27) and Elliot Staddon did put up 43 for the eighth wicket, but by then the game had gone.
Once Hall fell to Overton the Somerset paceman only needed a couple of balls to mop up the tail and finish with figures of five for 14.
North Devon are away to Exmouth this Saturday.
