Bangalow third-grade has finished in third place on the ladder behind TEB and Byron Bay after falling to TEB on the weekend.

Craig Thomas top the batting for Bangalow, scoring 43 of their 183-run total. Joseph Elphick was the pick of the TEB bowlers collecting 4/38 off eight overs.

In reply TEB wobbled to 5/66 before Nathan Fryer (43 not out) and Ben Crawford (69) got the team within reach. They achieved the total in 32 overs.

Bangalow will take on Byron Bay in the other third-grade semi-final that will be played at the Recreation Grounds this Saturday.
