The Byron Bay Brewery Twilight Cricket competition continued last with The Bowlo and Eureka picking up good wins.

On Monday The Bowlo defeated a depleted PMD side with a couple of younger lads getting their debut games of Twilight for Paul Munn Design, and they enjoyed the experience.

On Wednesday The Rip Starters defeated the Hot Bread Loafers with Zac and Peter scoring 30 runs each for the Starters.

The Town and Country side scored their first win of the season overcoming the newly formed West Tower Windies.

The new team of youngsters is still finding its feet and is yet to record a win.

For TandC Toby got 33 runs, Mitch came back and got 30 and Martie took 3/3 with the ball.

The Windies’ top scorer was Matt with 25 runs.

Eureka got about the Kronix on Friday and defeated them with two overs to spare. To be fair the outfield was damp and slow so it was a low-scoring event anyway.

After three rounds there are three teams undefeated:  Rip Starters, Eureka and the mighty Bowlo.

Twilight starts at around  5pm at Byron Recreation Grounds.

Ten teams compete and some are looking for players. Turn up and ask around if you are looking for a game.
