The Byron Beez basketballers suffered a crushing 81–65 defeat from the Lismore Storm at home last Saturday night.

Lismore Storm played the best game of their season and the Beez played close to their worst game. 

The first quarter saw the Beez ahead by 11 points but in the second quarter the Storm grabbed some good steals to hit the lead by half time.

Both teams were knocking down the threes to make for some extreme shooting, but with the Beez playing catch up they soon found themselves in foul trouble giving the Storm some easy buckets. 

This loss puts the Beez into the Semi-final against Ballina Breakers on Saturday  June 23 at Southern Cross High School 6pm. 

This is the must win game to get into the finals.
