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.

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
