Stevenson blasts Barton with bat and ball
RYAN Stevenson was man of the match as Dartington & Totnes triumphed by 30 runs over Barton in the quarter-finals of the Aaron Printers Narracott Cup.
After James Palmer and Nathan Caton-Robertson (27) powered to 36 for none in the first three overs, Stevenson kept the pace going with an unbeaten 60 as D&T reached 128 for five in their 20 overs.
Barton's start couldn't have been a bigger contrast as they were 33 for five after 10 overs and on their way out – pacer Stevenson taking three for 11.
Tom Drake hung around to make 40 not out and Tom Porter clubbed an entertaining 17 at the end as Barton scraped up 98 for seven.

LUSTLEIGH are through to the final of the Brockman Cup for the first time in a decade after beating Abbotskerswell by 43 runs in the semis.
Lustleigh won the cup six years running between 1996-2001 before South Devon wrestled it off them.
Jon Wright (22), Mike Wright (22) and Paul Foot (21) were the main contributors to a Lustleigh total of 129 for eight at Torquay Recreation Ground. Noah Tobias was the leading wicket taker for Abbots with three for 22.
Abbots were skittled out for 86 in reply with spinner Mike Brewer taking four for nine. John Wright claimed two for 25 and there were two wickets for Duncan Manners-Chapman, which must have felt a bit odd for him as he plays for Abbots in the Devon League on Saturday afternoons.
The Brockman Cup has been hard hit by bad weather and organisers are trying to cram unplayed games in.
Barton and Stokeinteignhead were due to play last night (Wednesday) in a delayed quarter-final. The winners are due to play Babbacombe 2nd XI at Torquay tomorrow (Friday night) weather permitting.
