The penultimate round of the Byron Bay Brewery Twilight Cricket only suffered one wash-out last week but did see the mighty Bowlo go down to Rip Starters.

Beezo knocked up 32 and Greeny hit 30 for a solid start to the game then Sat took 2/3 against the premiers to secure the win for Rip Starters, last season’s most improved side.

The Bowlo are still on top with the last round being played this week.

The contest is the tightest for a few years and this week’s games will determine the other three finalists with Town and Country Surfboards looking likely.

Last Tuesday the Paul Munn Designs match against the Kronics was washed out so one point each to them.

On Wednesday the Rugby Club overcame the Hot Bread Loafers with Betts hitting 31 for the footballers while Greg T got 30 for the Bakers.

On Thursday Tom and Lachie hit 30 each for T and C in their win over Paul Munn Designs despite solid thirtie from James and Nashy.

Friday’s  match saw Eureka Grass defeat Thomas, Noble and Russell with Sam hitting 27 and James taking 2/2 for the Grassies.

Bowlo have 26 points on the table followed by T and C (23). Then  PMD, Eureka and Rip Starters all sit on 21. The Rugby Club and PMD have 20 with TNR on 19.
