Will Jenkins scored 166 not out for Tintenbar East Ballina in their victory over Lennox Head at Epiq Oval in the Ballina District third-grade limited over fixture last Saturday afternoon.

Tintenbar East Ballina (TEB) batted first posting a total of 3/303 off their allotted 40 overs on the back of Will’s century and an unbeaten 207 run partnership with Joshua Thick who scored 67 not out.

Will opened the batting and his ton included 24 fours and five sixes.

In reply Lennox Head were bowled out for 148 in 28 overs.

The best of the bowlers for TEB included Jack Whitaker (3/6 off four overs) and Blake McQueen (2/38 off five overs).

TEB and Bangalow sit on top of the third-grade ladder with three wins each from three starts.

Bangalow thirds

Bangalow continued their winning run when they played away against Alstonville at Geoff Watt Oval last Saturday.

Bangalow opened with 6/186 off 38 overs, and bundled out Alstonville for 65 in 21 overs.

David Mills top scored for Bangalow with 68 not out, supported by Ben Redden (24) and Connor Redden (23).

Mason Lasserre was the best of the Alstonville bowlers with 2/39 off seven overs.

Alstonville lost their top wickets cheaply and posted only three scores of double figures, the best belonging to Craig Lasserre (14).

Bowling honours for Bangalow were taken by Connor for his 4/9 off three overs. Peter Stubbings ably supported with 2/11 off four overs.

Rain marred

First and second grade games in the local competitions, including the LJ Hooker League, were largely abandoned due to the wet weather conditions over the weekend.
