On the back of some tight bowling Byron Bay beat Tintenbar East Ballina at their homeground at the Cavanbah Sports Centre in the Far North Coast Cricket league last Saturday

Byron Bay won the toss and sent TEB in to bat and held them to 113 off 28 overs.

The visitors endured five ducks with just three batsmen reaching double figures. David Dirou scored 32 off 35 balls at the top of the order and partnered Joshua Thick on his way to 15.  A middle order collapse saw TEB go from 2/57 to 6/69.

Resistance also came later from Duncan Elphick coming in at number eight who scored a blistering 38 off 29 balls.

Byron’s chief enforcer on the day was Jason Trisley who returned 6/31 off his eight overs, including five clean-bowled.

Brady Fuhrman (1/15 off six overs) and Anton Pahoff (2/40 off eight) opened the bowling for Byron.

TEB started the second innings with three quick strikes to reduce the home team to 3/18.

But opener, Mitchell Barnes (40 no), remained at the crease and he combined with Scott Kilpatrick (45 no) to put on an unbeaten 96-run partnership to win the game.


In other games Bangalow bowled Terranora Lakes out for 151 at the Bilambil West oval before reeling in that total with the loss of just three wickets
