Rob Fishleigh (24), Gareth Tidball (25) and Tino Mutombodzi (23) steered Hatherleigh to 82 for three then Simon Gillespie (42) anchored the lower order to reach a total of 218 for seven. Jon Martin, Matt Lipton and Matt Crampton had two wickets each for Barton. Barton made a reasonable start they were 98 for three but the turning ball proved their undoing. Hatherleigh skipper Mark Lake (3-33) picked off a couple in quick succession including opener Shaun Needham (41). Tino Mutombodzi (3-26) added to the damage as Barton succumbed to 146 all out. Their last four wickets fell for eight runs, leaving Lipton stranded on 28 not out. Lake described it as a brilliant start to the season, adding: We got more than enough on a wicket where we thought 180 was plenty. Lake added: We know there will be bigger tests to come, but to get 19 points away from home is a great way to start the season. Opposite number Adam Parker said Hatherleigh were a good team, but his side did themselves no favours. We bowled too many extras, which obviously helped them get to a very defendable total. Hatherleigh bowled better then us, their bowlers bowled to a tight field which made it hard to score. Parker insisted it was not all negative. We were in the game for a long period of time, but didnt have one or two batters who could push on and score freely, he said. We will go again next week and put things right.
