Byron’s Ross Kendall (and The Echo sports editor) celebrates his figures of 5/33.

Byron Bay second grade cricketers had their first loss of the season after travelling to Cudgen to take on the competition’s seventh-placed side.

Cudgen won the toss and elected to bat and went on to score 6/170 off their 40 overs.

R Marriott (32 runs) and Bassingthwaighte (21) opened solidly and took Cudgen to 64.

The rest of the top order, barring K Lohman who fell for 1, made good starts including J Weir (41), N Chapman (30) and T Wilson (13).

L Shouldice was the best of the Byron bowlers with 3/14 off eight overs, while M Irwin picked up 2/41 off his eight overs.

In reply, Byron opened solidly enough with openers O Delian (9) and J Cox (10) taking the score to 21 before Delian was bowled.

The next six wickets, including Irwin (9), M Bear (1), M Loane (5), R Mc Guiness (0), and P Jackson (1), combined to add only 19 to the score, and left Byron in trouble at 7/44.

L James top scored with 22 and supported by G Worthington (17) got the side to all out for 99 in 29.3 overs.

Despite the loss, Byron remain at the top of the Coastal League.

In a patchy reply Byron reached the total, with eight wickets down. M Larsson (14) and R Egan (14no) top scored for Byron.
