Byron Bay Brewery Twilight Cricket Competition

The Thomas, Noble and Russell squad inflicted the first loss of the season on The Bowlo in the Byron Bay Brewery Twilight Cricket Competition last Wednesday.

The Bowlo got off to a good start helped by Anthony scoring 30, but a good all-round performance by Thomas, Noble and Russell, last season’s champions, saw them chase down the total.

On Monday Paul Munn Designs defeated the Hot Bread Loafers. Sam hit 30 for the bakers and Ziggy took 2/11 bowling for Munga’s mob.

Tuesday was Rip Starters’ day as they defeated the hot and cold Kronix with Stats compiling 32 runs for the winners.

Thursday resulted in a win to the improving Rugby Club team over the tepid Town and Country side.

Boof the Second hit 30 for T&C but Bettsy (34), Jules (32) and Blakey (31) racked up a big enough score to win the game.

Joshy was run out for zero, so more training for him.

On Friday night Eureka collected the points after a forfeit by the West Tower Windies.

Despite their first loss the mighty Bowlo is still on top of the table. Eureka are in second place.
