Terrific start to season for firsts and seconds- though thirds unable to raise a team

D&T v Tavistock  click on this link for scorecard

The  first team had a fantastic win over Tavistock despite being bowled out for 87 on a damp track.  (Cliff had not wanted the match to go ahead)

Ryan and Bertus opened the batting and we were 41 without loss before Bertus went for 22 and then Ryan soon followed for 18.  H was the only other player to reach double figures with a valuable 13 not out.

Tavvy were doubtless confident of victory needing to score 88 in 61 0vers.  The overs worked in our favour as Raz was able to bowl 18.  Tavvy found run scoring even harder than we did and were on the back foot from the start when Nathan bowled their opener for a duck.  From 24 for 6 they progressed to 70 all out.  Ryan took 5 for 29, Nathan 3 for 23 with Bertus and Jono picking up a wicket apiece.
