STEVE Moore was the right man in a tight spot for Barnstaple & Pilton in a two-wicket B Division win at Clyst Hydon.Clyst's total of 176 all out was always going to be tough to defend, but they had a real go with Lee Morgan (3-26), Kev Sercombe (2-59) and Mike Johnson (2-59) combining to reduce B&P to 110 for six.Andy Barton (32) and Rob Holm (35) had gone, but Clyst couldn't shift Steve Moore, who batted through to make an undefeated 24 as B&P wrapped up victory with seven balls to spare.Clyst were left to reflect on their failure to bat out their own overs and claim a few more precious runs.Dean Reed made 37 early on then Clint Lewis (49) and Sercombe (56) took the score up to 142 for four with a stand of 84.Mark Metters (5-36) was largely responsible for Clyst losing six wickets for 34 runs.Barnstaple entertain Bideford this Saturday.l BIDEFORD kept their nerve to claim a winning draw in a low-scoring game with Shobrooke Park.In a game reduced to 31 overs a side by rain, Bideford made a modest 135 for five. After James Ford went for 28, Phil Anning (4-47) posed problems as Bideford laboured to 67 for five. Jack Hockin (36no) and Chris Luxton (23no) stopped the rot by putting on 68 unbroken.Shobrooke got down to the final two overs needing a dozen to win and the last of all with a target of four. Skipper Chris Ford (32no) and John Sweeney couldn't get Alex Hodges away and the final product of 133 for eight was only good enough for a draw.Earlier, Luxton had taken four for 24 and Matt Bettis two for 41.
