Big scores in third-grade cricket.

The Tintenbar-East Ballina Weeds third-grade cricket team have proved themselves worthy competition leaders after chasing down 264 set by Lennox Head on Saturday.

The Lennox side playing at home won the toss and elected to bat.

After losing their openers cheaply, the third wicket partnership of J Somerville (70) and GW DuPlessis (30) added over 100 runs.

M Hickey (80) then chimed in with the side’s top score supported by J Lenaghan (35).

The best of the Tintenbar-East Ballina bowlers was B Dirou, who finished with 3/45 off eight overs.

Lennox Head finished with 8/264 off their allotted 40 overs setting a run rate of 6.6 per over for the visitors.

A challenge the Weeds successfully dealt with in just 36 overs.

P Leeson came to the crease with his side at 1/45 and was still there when the winning runs were hit, sitting on 81 not out.

Opener B Parrish contributed a solid 77 and K Hamilton was also among the runs scoring 64.

All up the comp’s top side reached their target with the loss of just four wickets.

Best bowling for the home side was from J Hooper who delivered 2/57 off his eight.

Lennox Head now sit on third place behind Bangalow on the Ballina District Cricket Third Grade ladder.

The Bangalow side also had a good win over Byron Bay, playing at the beachside Recreation Ground

Bangalow’s strong batting side hit up 7/237 off their allocated 40 overs.

Lachy was Byron’s best bowler taking 2/56.

Byron chased hard but Sunny (4/21) and Tommy (3/13) spearheaded the Bangalow attack, taking seven wickets between the two of them.

Alas Byron were all out for 138 with Mick (26), Lachy (18), James (17no),  Zac (16), George (12) and Tom (10) all getting a starts but not able to go on with it.
