Bowlo remain undefeated and T&C kept up a winning streak in last week’s games of the Byron Bay 16-over Twilight cricket competition.

Monday’s match proved to be a tight game with Rip Starters eventually being beaten by the Mighty Bowlo after Simon scored 31 keep his side’s undefeated run. Greeny hit 30 for the Starters.

On Tuesday the Kronix managed to defeat the West Tower Windies even though both Hailey and Casper got their 30 runs. Mick did the same for the Ks.

The Rugby Club overcame the Hot Bread Loafers on Wednesday evening with Schmidty hitting 32 and Larsso 30 for the footballers.

Town and Country Surfboards leapt into third place on Thursday by virtue of their win over Paul Munn Designs. Buttercup hit 34 and Dougie 39 while no-one in the PMD reached the magic 30-run mark.

The same can be said for the two sides that played on Friday night.

The TNR crew just could amass enough runs to overcome Eureka, whose win puts them in second place on the ladder. Eureka’s bowlers were too good, limiting TNR to 57 runs. The team’s batters took just 10 overs to chase down the total.

With one round to go before the Christmas break the season resumes mid-January with all players rested and refreshed.
