Uplyme and Lyme Regis II sit proudly on top of the Francis Clark Devon League 2nd XI D Division (East) table after a two wicket win in the East Devon derby at Kilmington II.
The hosts batted first and were indebted to a ninth wicket partnership of 75 between G Holland (40) and T Olive (25no) that saw them recover from 133-8 to a close of 208 all out.
Uplyme skipper Wallace Blackmore was the star of the show taking six wickets for 43 runs in his nine overs.
Wesley Holmes claimed 2-38 from eight and there was a wicket each for Steve Howe and Ali Rattenbury.
Rain truck the reply leaving a revised target of 195 in 44 overs. From a comfortable 61 without loss thanks to the openers Ed Clarke (26) and Tyler Wellman (34), four wickets fell for the addition of 19 runs before Daley Holmes (35no) and Dave Norman (30) steadied things, adding 58 for the fifth wicket.
However, a couple more wickets fell, leaving the reply on 180-8, but Ali Rattenbury (9 no), at number ten, stayed with Holmes to see their side to victory with two wickets and two balls to spare.
