A score of 62 from Ottery St Mary wicketkeeper Eddie Rudolph proved to be in vain as they were defeated by Kilimington in the Devon Cricket League East E1 (Tier 3) division.

Ottery won the toss and elected to bat but opener Joe Henkus fell to the first ball of the day.

Fellow opener Alex Clements combined with Rudolph for a 107-run partnership as the team ended on 180 all out after the 40 overs.

Despite a positive start from openers Tom Gooding and Josh, Kilmington found themselves in trouble when two middle-order batsmen, including captain Brett Garner, were dismissed for ducks but Billy Reed steadied the ship.

He combined with Oliver Reed for a 105-run partnership before he was caught by Rudolph off the bowling of Henry Mutter.
