A 126-run fifth-wicket partnership helped Byron Bay to a total of 7/252 that proved too much for Tweed-Banora in the second-grade fixture at Dave Burns Field last Saturday.

Byron Bay won the toss and elected to bat. Stephen Daniels opened and went on to score 90 off 99 deliveries. He had support from Scott Kilpatrick (29 from 27 balls) but the visitors were on 4/98 by the time he was joined by Lenny Bridle.

The pair put on 126 with Lenny hitting 70 from 61 – including six sixes.

Brady Fuhrmann chimed in at the end with 17 off seven balls to bring the total to 252 after 40 overs.

Best of the Tweed-Banora bowlers was Troy Thoms with 2/29 off eight overs and Daniel Thoms 2/49 off eight.

In reply Tweed-Banora’s openers got to 20 before James Lewis was run out for 10. His opening partner, Darren Laycock, went on to top score with 35.

Sebastian Koppel (16), Aaron Hasaart (29), and Michael Kolovos (20) all got starts, but with six scores under ten the side couldn’t get into a position to challenge the target and were all out for 162 in the 35th over.

Levi Shouldice 4/16 off 6.3 overs and Jason Trisley 3/28 off four overs did the damage for Byron Bay.

The win, Byron’s third for the season, leaves them in eight spots on the Coastal League ladder two places behind Tweed-Banora.

Terranora Lakes is top of the table followed by Tintenbar-East Ballina, and the Cudgen Hornets – all with eight wins from nine, while Bangalow is in fourth place with six wins.
