Both the 1st and 2nd XIs faced Exeter 2nd and 3rd XIs respectively as UBCC returned to outdoor cricket for the 2017 season. The 1s started as they mean to go on this year with a 3 wicket win chasing 221 in 49.2 overs. Everyone faired well with the ball, notably Mayo (10-2-23-2), Hodges (10-2-25-2) and Wynn (10-0-35-2). After suffering a couple of early setbacks, Smith (64) and Donald (32) steadied the ship with a 73 run partnership before the lower order of Waite (44), Lord (26*) and Hodges (13*) saw UBCC home.
The 2s unfortunately couldn't follow the example set by the 1s. They too suffered early setbacks to be reduced to 40-4 but useful contributions from Campbell (44) and Dawes (37) saw them post 160 all out. Exeter chased this down losing just the three wickets. Anderson, Campbell and Brown all picked up a wicket whilst Coetzee reliably informed he beat the bat to no avail numerous times.
