Ottery St Mary 2nds ended a run of three straight defeats with a splendid eight wicket win over visiting Braunton II, when the sides met in a 2nd XI A Division game.

It was a terrific all-round display with the ball that set up the Otters first win of the league campaign as they bundled the North Devon side out for 132 in 40.3 overs.

Five different bowlers claimed wickets with the top return being the one of 3-30 in nine overs from Jack Dallyn.

Ash Prasad claimed 2-13 from six overs and George Mutter had figures of 2-14 fro four, but they were both outdone by the splendid return of two wickets for five runs from 3.3 overs sent down by Albert Southall-Brown.

The single wicket taker was Matt Bauer with 1-24 from five overs.

The run chase proved to be a comfortable one, led by Richard Jackson who was unbeaten on 58 when the win was sealed. Jackson and Albert Southall-Brown put on 44 for the opening wicket and then George Mutter joined Jackson and they took the score to 129 before Mutter fell for 26. Eddie Rudolph was in at four, but did not need to register a run as Jackson saw the side over the line.

This weekend (June 3), Ottery 2nds travel to face a Heathcoat II side that are one of three in the division yet to win a game. The Tiverton side have lost each game they have played so far this term and sit third bottom, one point and one place below the Otters.
