Byron Bay Football Club’s division two men’s team continued their undefeated run for the season with a 2–0 win against the Uki Pythons playing away last Saturday.

The team sit on top of the competition ladder ahead of Tumbulgum, Eureka and Goonellabah.

The side has notched up fifteen wins and two draws across the season and had wrapped up the points competition before last week’s win.

Premier division

The BBFC’s top men’s side is also having a strong run through to the end of the season starting with a 2–0 win against competition leaders Richmond River in round 15.

They backed this up with a 5–0 win against competition contenders South Lismore two weeks ago, and last Friday beat Lennox Head 4–1.

The side is fourth on the ladder behind Richmond River, South Lismore and Bangalow but is seven competition points clear of fifth placed Lismore Thistles.
