Tim Stokes’s safe hands weren’t enough to save Eureka Grass in their twilight match with T and C.

Both of Byron’s Senior grades lost last weekend as the end of the season loomed with one match to go this Saturday.

The Byron Bay LJ Hooker Seconds remain in the final four despite a touch up by Tintenbar East Ballina last Saturday while the Cellars Fourths can take an early road trip to watch the 2s, after their loss to Bangalow.

The Seconds started out well with the bat being 3/79 at one stage but then our old mate ‘Col Lapse’ joined the game and we were all out for 113.

Darren, at #2, was our highest scorer followed by Matt on 17, Toby with 13 and Max 11.

Levi bowled a beauty to get our only wicket as the Bar cruised to an easy win.

This week we take on Pottsville at Reg Dalton Field in Cudgen as we don’t have a playable turf wicket yet. Short Stats: Tintenbar East Ballina 1 – 116 (B Crawford 27 n.o., M Gabriel 40, P Dalli 45 n.o.,) defeated Byron Bay 113 (Darren Wright 38, Matt Irwin 17, Owen Delian 14, Toby Schott 13,  Max Bear 11, Bailey Crawford 3/3, R Richards 3/19, B Frost 3/31) at Kingsford Smith South, Ballina.

Our Thirds came up against a red-hot Bangalow side at the Rec on Saturday where we won the toss and batted.

Alas, we were all out for 73 with Tim getting 15 runs,  Dylan 13,  and 10 each to Greg and Ewan.

The strong Bangalow batting side went past us without loss. We have a home game against the Alstonville Wood Ducks to finish off the season so we are looking to go out with a win.

Short Stats: Bangalow 0 – 84 (T Plummer 38 n.o., R Jacob 34 n.o.,) defeated Byron Bay 73 (Tim Goodhind 15, Dylan Bailey 13).

Meanwhile, in twilight cricket Eureka Grass were defeated by T and C in last week’s full-moon clash.
