It's all to play for when the shortened Devon Cricket League moves into the final round of group matches this Saturday, with winner-takes-all games right across the divisions.
Premier Central contenders Bovey Tracey (2nd) travel to leaders Bradninch after paceman Hugo Whitlock's five wickets, including a third hat-trick of the season, inspired them to an 89-run win over Exeter.
Torquay (ave 15.75), Abbotskerswell (14.33) and Barton (14) could all still top South One - Barton have a tasty derby against Torquay at Cricketfield Road and Abbots travel to Bovey 2nds.
Leaders Dartington and Totnes host second-placed Ipplepen in South Two.
There are similar match-ups in South Three, where Paignton 2nds take on Stoke Gabriel at Queen's Park and, in South Three, with leaders South Devon travelling to Walls Hill to meet Babbacombe.
