North Devon’s last Premier Division game of the season turned into a non-event.
North Devon were bowled out for just 64 in 21 overs, which Paignton knocked off in quicker than run-a-ball rate.
Devon batsman Max Curtis made 18 and Quintin Dreyer 13. No one else made more than Ed Yeo, who hung around for 25 minutes to make eight.
The early damage was done by Connor Ashworth (3-24) and Stephen George (3-8),
George Yates, one of Paignton’s success stories in a disappointing season, mopped up the stragglers with four wickets for 17 runs in five overs.
Peter Taylor (35no) and Noah Wright (11) made a 45-run dent in the deficit.
Taylor was particularly severe on Yeo, who was lashed for 29 in his first two overs and didn’t get a third.
Wright and Richard Ashworth fell in successive overs to Tom Allin and Josh King, but the race was almost run.
Dan Wolf won the game in four balls with three boundaries and a single as Paignton crossed the line in just 9.1 overs.
