Lennox Head first grader Benny Moyle after his debut century.

The Lennox Head first XI completed an outright win over Murwillumbah in the Far North Coast two-day LJ Hooker league, which included some notable individual performances with bat and ball.

These included B Boyle’s maiden first-grade century as well as a 10-wicket haul for Lennox Head’s most-capped first-grader T Fisher. In the first innings he came away with 7/18 off and backed it in the second innings with 3/26.

Playing at Megan Crescent ground in Lennox Head, Murwillumbah won the toss and elected to bat before being dismissed for 43 in 16 overs.

Lennox bowler C Maladay supported Fisher, taking 3/15 of seven overs.

Lennox declared at 7/228 on the back of Moyle’s tonne and a 50 n.o. to J Blackler.

A Peenz was the best of the Murwillumbah bowlers with the figures of 2/35 from three overs.

In their second innings, Murwillumbah were dismissed for 131. J Hooper shared the bulk of the wickets with Fisher, and finished with 3/30 off 10 overs. 

After three rounds Lennox Head are second on the competition ladder behind Pottsville.
