The Bowlo are proving tough to beat and now sit two wins in front of the pack after another round of the Byron Bay Brewery Twilight Cricket competition.

First up Rip Starters defeated TNR with Greeny and Barnesy both getting 30 runs.  For the accountants Ben hit 38 runs and Jason 31.

Wednesday saw the undefeated Bowlo continue on their winning way, this time beating the Hot Bread Loafers despite the piemen’s Ewan scoring 33 and Brady 31. Simon on 30 runs was the Bowlo’s top-scorer and the rest all made runs to overtake the Loafers’ total.

Town and Country Surfboards had another win on Thursday, this time against Eureka Grass. Toby made a rare 50 runs for the Boardies while Matt returned 2/9 with the ball to thwart Eureka when they came in to bat. Anthony hit 27 runs to be the best on the day for Eureka, who couldn’t find the big finish they needed.

The Kronix knocked out their first win on Friday by defeating the Rugby Club.

Locky and Owen both hit 30 runs for the Ks and Matt from the Rugby made runs and Beastie got 30 to be their best. There are two weeks of competition left before we break for Christmas.

PMD and West Tower Windies were washed out and will now play in January.
