Despite posting a solid score of 206 Bangalow third grade cricketers were chased down by Alstonville Leftovers in last week’s Ballina District Cricket Association match.

Playing away Bangalow won the toss and elected to bat giving in-form opener S Singh the chance to back up from his century last week with 70 runs before he was run out.

B Plumber contributed 40 runs along with R Jacob (30) and B Hall (31 n/o) resulting in a total of 4/206.

B Hudson was the best of the Alstonville bowlers with 1/19 off five overs.

Alstonville chased down the total in 36 overs posting 7/210 in a measured all-round batting reply.

G Hunter top scored with 43 but he was well supported across the card with all batsmen bar one posting double figures.

D Campey (19), J Tamlin (25), M Job (32), B Hudson (20), A Lindsay (11), L McNally and S Petty (25) all helped to keep the scoreboard moving toward the target.

The best of Bangalow’s bowlers were T Plummer with 2/35 off eight overs and B Alcock with 2/37 off four.

The win keeps the Leftovers in the top four, just three points clear of Lennox Head, who are nine points ahead of Bangalow, who sit in sixth place on the competition ladder.
