A lusty blow from Chis C gave the Thomas, Noble and Russell side a last-ball victory in their Twilight cricket match against Thomas, Noble and Russell last week.

Mick set up the win hitting 31 for the financial advisers (TNR) in response to a good knock of 30 from Tom batting for PMD.

The Byron Bay Brewery Twilight competition is once again in full swing and in other games the Kronix continued their resurgence by defeating the Hot Bread Loafers.

OD got 30 runs to take the Kronix into fifth spot on the ladder but Dylan managed 37 for the Bakers to keep them honest.

The long-awaited return clash of the mighty Bowlo versus T&C happened on Wednesday. T&C were in it for a while but Cam’s high score of the week (45) saw the inevitable result go in the Bowlo’s direction.

Andy G’s 2/9 stifled the Boardies with Mitch being the sole bat to get to 30 runs for the team.

The Rip Starters battled it out with the West Tower Windies. But Scoot (44), Laith (38) and Molly (32) hit starters to a win.

Friday night’s party game resulted in the Eureka lads defeating the Rugby Club boyos by defending a score of 108. Adam hit 36 for the Eureka side and Joey got 33 for the footballers coming in  at last drop, but there was not much he could do after the side slumped to 7/40.

The Bowlo are now three matches ahead on the ladder with a tight field following.
