Tom Gooding dished up a superb innings, carrying his bat from first delivery to last, scoring an unbeaten 30-boundary, 184 as Kilmington beat Budleigh Salterton 2nds by a huge margin of 181 runs.

However, from 6-1, the home total got to 160 before a second wicket was lost with Matt Pile the batsman out, caught for a fine knock of 61. Billy Reed (12) and skipper Brett Garner (17), came and went before Alex Rockett, batting at number six, joined Gooding and the pair added 92 for the unbroken fifth wicket with Rockett unbeaten on 22, hitting three fours and one six. However, it was opener Gooding who took all the plaudits as he walked off at tea having hit 26 fours and four sixes, scoring a magnificent 184.

When Budleigh replied they were soon five wickets down for just 45 runs with wickets taken by Matt Pile (2), Tom Olive (2) and Matt Reed, all to catches held by Alex Rockett, Tom Olive, Billy Reed, Robert Crabb and Matt Reed. The sixth wicket rallied, but only as far as 77 when Billy Reed held a catch to give Matt Reed a second wicket.

An Ollie Reed catch off the bowling of Rob Crabb left Budleigh 113-7. The tail wagged a little, but only to an all out total of 150 with the final three wickets falling to Rob Crabb, with a Tom Olive catch and the last two were both clean bowled with Sam Olive and Ollie Reed the successful bowlers.

In terms of those Kilmington bowling figures, all six used claimed at least one wicket with four of them bagging a brace. The stand-out figures were those from Matt Pile, 2-6 from six overs whole the others with two wickets were Matt Reed (2-32), Rob Crabb (2-42) and Tom Olive (2-43). Ollie Reed and Sam Olive each got a single wicket.
