Matt Irwin drives his way to 68.

The Byron Bay second XI collected a good win in their top-of-the-table game against Lennox Head playing away at Megan Crescent oval last Saturday.

The Cellars seconds won the toss and elected to bat and eventually hit up 8/207 off 40 overs, but had to recover from a precarious 3/19.

Matt Irwin top scored with hit 68 runs closely followed by Mitch Loane on a lusty 59 and Ryan McGuiness hit a rapid 36 runs.

Lennox Head started their chase well with captain/wicketkeeper and opening bat Bruce Young topping their score with a solid 71 runs.

Late in the order James Barnes got 44 not out, but their innings finished in the 36th over on 184, 23 runs short.

Toby Schott returned figures of 3/32 and Heath Chigwidden got 2/26 on his return to the Byron side.

Lachlan Whiteford, Levi Shouldice and skipper Matt Irwin (who got their skipper out LBW) shared the other wickets.

 There were two run-outs as well. So the Cellars seconds batted strongly, then bowled and fielded well to get a great win putting themselves seond on the ladder behind Lennox Head.
