NOAH Sutton’s century – his second in league cricket – was among the highlights of Ipplepen 2nd XI’s 161-run win over D West strugglers Dartington & Totnes.

Sutton blazed away for exactly 100 off 67 balls faced – ten fours, four sixes – as the Pens galloped along to 310 for seven in 45 overs.

Steve Bowden (63) controlled the early part of the innings with Jeff Heath (30) for company during a stand of 71 for the third wicket.

After Bowden was fourth out with 10 overs to go on 185, the run rate went through the roof!

Sixteen-year-old Sutton and Freddie Harvey (37) put on 87 in just five overs. Tobias Alsop slapped it around a bit while making 19 from 13 balls as the tally grew.

Jono Lloyd, the D&T captain, rang the bowling changes in an attempt to slow things down. It had limited success, although Lewis Starkie (3-50) and the skipper (2-49) got it down to below 10 an over by the end.

Dartington & Totnes, who were without consistent run-getter Justin Osborne, were under no illusions about the task ahead.

Paul Taylor (20) was the lone top-six batter to hang around for long. D&T were 89 for eight at one stage. Kevan Throgmorton (34) and veteran Mick Rusling (16) kept Pens in the field long enough to reach 149 all out.

Ross Kennard (3-21), Paul Thomas (2-16), Harvey (2-25) and Warrick Green (2-20) took the bowling honours for Ipplepen.
