A century by Jacob Fulwood helped Lennox Head second grade cricket team to a strong win over the Ballina Bears in the Coastal League last Saturday.

Playing at home, the Lennox Pirates choose to bat after winning the toss. Jacob opened and scored his 106, including 15 boundaries off 91 balls.

When the other opener, B Young (13), was out with the score at 42, Jacob was joined at the crease by Zac Gilmore who scored 82 off 86 balls. The pair shared a 132-run second wicket partnership. All up, the pirates scored 7/271 off their 40 overs. C Twiname was the best of the Ballina bowlers, with 2/33 off four overs. In reply, things went badly from the start with opener Twiname out LBW with the score on zero.

The visitors were soon 5/34. Z Meldrum was the top scorer with 18no, as eight batsmen failed to reach double figures. Ballina were all out for 86 in the 19th over. B Kernaghan was the bets for Lennox Head with 4/25 off eight overs. The win moves Lennox Head to fifth place on the competition ladder with 78 competition points, equal to Byron Bay
