TEB cricketers scuttle Byron

Syl Reid

Tintenbar East Ballina cricketers were too good for Byron Bay last weekend picking up wins in both the Coastal League second grade and third grade.

The Byron Cellars second grade hosted TEB but lost the toss and fielded.

After 40 overs TEB were 8/159. The pick of the batters were M Gabriel who scored 44 before retiring and A Clarke (33 runs).

Matt Irwin was the best of the Byron bowlers with 3/20 off his eight overs with good support from Toby Schott (2/26) and Levi Shouldice (2/41).

Byron chased hard but fell 24 runs short. Mitch Loane top scored with 50 and Matt Irwin (21), Brady Furhmann (17) and Max Bear (15) all supported but couldn’t get the total past 135.

The seconds are hanging on to fourth spot on the ladder but after two losses in a row need a win up at Bilambil next Saturday against Terranora Lakes to stay in the hunt.

The Byron Bay L J Hooker thirds lost to TEB Fire playing away at Chickiba Oval, Ballina.

The Thirds lost the toss and TEB Fire hit up 5/246 featuring Duncan Elphick top-scoring with 67 runs. J Stewart (61) and D Barnwell (53 no) both had good innings as well. The best of the Byron bowlers was J Leary with 2/46 off eight.

In return Byron managed 175 despite good starts across the top order with opener Drew Kimmorley scoring 21, followed by T goodhind (33), Mick Hughes (33) and J Trisley (31).

TEB’s Elphick bowled 3/18 off his six overs.
