The Byron Bay seconds had a loss up at Bilambil playing Terranora Lakes after winning the toss and batting.

Byron Cellars hit up 110 in 30 overs after being 5/34 with Peter Jackson top scoring with 21 runs not out, followed by Max Bear and Mitch Loane on 16 runs, while Lachlan Whiteford hit 13 off four scoring shots.

Terranora’s J Wilcox was the best of the bowlers, collecting 5/34 of eight including both openers.

In reply the home side batted solidly and passed the target score in the 25th over with five wickets down. I Rowlings top scored with 31 n/o.

Lachlan took 2/11 off four overs, while George Worthington, Levi Shouldice and Brady Fuhrmann all got one wicket each.

Despite the result Byron hangs on to second place on the ladder and next will play third-placed Tintenbar East Ballina at Kingsford Smith South.

Terranora sits in fifth spot on the ladder.


The Byron Bay LJ Hooker third grade played their second game in a row on turf – this time at Fripp Oval against Ballina Bears, but came away defeated.
