UPLYME & LYME REGIS 238-7 (17pts) tied with EXETER II 238-8 (16pts)

EXETER Seconds’ Jeremy Tojy hit the final ball for six to tie this highly entertaining game with Uplyme & Lyme Regis.

The visitors’ run-chase ebbed and flowed throughout but with a strong squad that batted all the way down they always looked in the hunt.

Taking first strike, Uplyme lost early wickets against some quick bowling. They were 59-4 at one stage but Joe Elsworth (30) and Mark Batey (51) soon led a fightback.

The highlight of the innings though was a well-crafted 91 from skipper Sam Farrow. Scoring at almost a run a ball, he included 13 fours and one six in his total.

Most successful of the visiting bowlers was paceman Aashay Dube who took 2-39 off his nine overs.

Exeter made a promising start through Jamie Khan (18) and Alex Haywood (39) and there was further support from Matt Kimber (24).

As the overs ticked down, they looked to be falling short but, when Tojy was joined by Seb Looker, a close finish appeared more likely.

The hard-hitting Tojy finished with 63 not out, eight fours and two sixes, while Looker was also undefeated on 28 when Tojy’s final straight drive powered over the boundary rope.

In a short spell of slow bowling, Daniel Magee finished with the home side’s best figures, his two wickets costing 25 runs.

On Saturday, Uplyme make the trip to old rivals and title contenders Alphington and Countess Wear (1pm).
