The Byron Bay LJ Hooker seconds had a resounding win last Saturday playing at home against the Ballina Bears to retain fourth place on the Coastal League ladder.

Captain Matt won the toss and batted against the ninth-placed Ballina Bears. His team scored 156 runs for the loss of six wickets in  their 40 overs with Adam (top scorer with 39) and Stephen making a 63-run fourth wicket stand.

Toby (26), Owen (22), Stephen (19), George (12 no) and Matt (10) all made double figures.

Ballina started strongly while their opener made 50 runs to give Byron a bit of a scare but wickets kept falling around him. When he fell victim to Martie, Ballina were 5/67 and Byron were on a roll.

The home side picked up the remaining five wickets for 16 runs, halting the Bears’ innings at 83 in the 25th over.

Martie collected (4/23) and brother Matt (3/19) were the main protagonists with the ball for Byron.

Toby chimed in with 1/23 while Levi bowled a peach to nab a wicket off one ball to close out the match.

Next week Byron have a chance to play themselves into third place on the ladder when they travel to take on Cudgen, who are just two competition points ahead on the table.
