No joy for all three Axminster sides as June starts without a win.
Axminster battled to secure a draw in their B Division game at Tavistock where they closed on 169-8 in reply to the host score of 236-9.
Alex Wraight was once again amongst the wickets, taking 4-70 whilst skipper Paul Miller took 3-25.
The reply was led by Tristan Wakeley (39) and Matthew Pyle (34) but, any thoughts of a successful run chase, were over long before the end as the side dug deep to secure the losing draw.
Axminster now sit seventh in the table, thirty points short of the promotion berths and four above the drop zone with this weekend’s trip to Barnstaple and Pilton marking the completion of one third of the Francis Clark Devon league season.
Axminster II are still to win a 2nd XI C Division game after their fifth outing this term saw them claim a losing draw at Clyst Hydon where the hosts struck an imposing 306-7 declared, answered by the Axminster II with 214-7. Tom Maxwell was the most successful bowler, claiming 2-46 whilst Dan Murnane (46), Colin Ledbetter (36) and James Farley (30), made the largest individual totals in the reply.
