Eddy strode down the pitch on his way to an unbeaten 20 runs, helping Eureka post an easy win.

The Bowlo’s lead in the Byron Bay Brewery Twilight Cricket competition was cut to just three points last week when they suffered their second defeat of the season, losing to the Rugby Club.

The footy players managed to put on 101 underpinned by Schmitty’s 34 runs, and then dismissed the once-mighty Bowlo for 86.

In the Monday game Thomas, Noble and Russell combined to defeat the West Tower Windies.

Paul Munn Designs also got a win over the Rip Starters with the best performance being Angus bowling 1/4.

Town and Country Surfboards and the Kronix always  feature in high-scoring games and last week was no different.

Mitch (33) and Matt (30) set up the win for T&C while Owen and Lachy got 30 runs each for the Suffolk boys, but it wasn’t enough to get them over the line.

The Eureka Grass showed  form on Thursday, defeating the Hot Bread Loafers, who managed a total of 75 after losing early wickets. In an all- round good bowling performance Rossco took 2/6.
