The Town and Country Surfboards team won the Byron Bay Brewery Twilight Cricket Competition with a resounding win over the Bowlo in last Sunday’s major final.

The T&C side scored 137 in their 16 overs and this proved to be too much for the minor premiers to chase down, as they were bundled out without threatening.

Well done T&C in what could be the last season of the side under that sponsor’s name after a long association.

In the B grade final the Rugby Club overhauled the Rip Starters 108-run total in the last over of the match.

It was a thriller and a great example of what Twilight is all about.

Both these sides have evolved from raw recruits into very competitive teams  so keep an eye out for them next season.

Earlier in the day Eureka Grass defeated Paul Munn Designs. Played in hot, still conditions and with dew still on the ground this was a pretty intense affair with the hippies achieving the win in the 15th over.

This gave them the chance to play for a place in the final, but they had to back up straightaway and played a fresh T&C side in the midday heat.

T&C were kept to 108 runs by the Eureka Grass bowlers after they took early wickets.

But the total was enough to secure the win.

T&C’s bowling lineup kept the pressure on the Eureka batsmen and a run of late wickets left Eureka 12 runs in arrears.

The win set up T&C’s grandfinal challenge.

A big thanks to the workers on the day and especially to Hughsy for his efforts.

Our caterers, scorers and umpires all deserve a mention. Well done, lads.
