The Westward Ho! team were undefeated going into round four in the B Division and looking like promotion candidates.
Bideford’s 45-over total of 215 for five was almost enough to make it four in a row, but not quite. Tavistock reached the last over from James Ford needing five to win and got over the line with two balls left.
Bideford were 110 without loss thanks to Tom Brend (75) and James Hayter (37) when Tavvy captain Shaun Daymond removed the latter to split them up.
Brend and Ollie Hannam were next to go before Clayton Malgas (38) and Ford (24) got the scoreboard moving again.
Ryan Burke (2-36) was the only Tavvy bowler to take more than one wicket.
Tavistock’s reply was underpinned by openers Steve Luffman (39) and Rhys Davies (55) batting for 90 minutes while Bideford’s bowlers toiled away in the sun. They put on 97.
Billy Barriball (32) and Will Scott-Munden (26) took the reply up to 183 for five, Charlie Barriball (20 off 10 balls) left 15 to get, which Sean Cleave and Dom Snyman did between them.
Ford (3-54) and Malgas (2-28) had to earn Bideford’s wickets. Chris Luxton and Steve Bond bowled nine overs each at less than three runs a time.
