The Lennox Head Pirates had a good win against Ballina in the third grade after Terry Rose made an unbeaten 140 that included a one hundred run partnership with John Armstrong, who was playing in his 100th grade game for the club.

The milestones were reached on Saturday at Saunders Oval in Ballina where the Pirates batted first. 

Terry came to the crease with the visitors on 4/180 and partnered with R Asser (6), before he was joined by John. The pair took the score from 5/193 to 5/298. In reply, the Ballina Bears were bowled out for 121.

John topped off a good day with bowling figures of 1/4 off one over.

The win puts Lennox Head on top of the table with Tintenbar East Ballina and Bangalow.
