In the last round of the Coastal League before the Christmas break Byron Bay lost to an invigorated Mullumbimby-Brunswick to leave them in second pace on the ladder

The Byron side travelled to Thompson Oval in Brunswick and bowled first to the home side.

The Mullum Brunswick side hit 161 runs off 38.5 overs, and were largely contained by some good bowling headed up by Levi Shouldice (3/18 off eight overs) and George Worthington (3/21 off six overs).

H Godbee was the mainstay for the Mullum-Bruns side finishing with 51 n/o. He was backed up by G turner (27) and S Porter (26).

The total proved to be enough as Mullum-Bruns produced some good bowling themselves to leave Byron Bay’s batting effort nine runs short, at 8/152 after their allotted 40 overs.

Worthington backed up his bowling with the team’s best batting effort scoring 31, aided by Zac Vickers (30)  and Stephen Daniels (25).

The win was the second for the Mullum-Bruns team in the last three weeks and puts them in second-last position on the table.

Earlier in the season they were forfeiting games, but have come back with a team good enough to beat the competition’s top sides.

Lennox Head remain on top of the table with 55 points after a reasonably comfortable win at home against Murwillumbah on the weekend.

Byron are in second place on the table with 46 points, just ahead of Tintenbar East Ballina (45) and Terronora (42).
