The Byron Bay Beez senior men’s team has stamped its authority on the local Sunshine Conference by winning six of its last seven games, including a 91–64 win over the Lismore Storm last Saturday at the Cavanbah Centre.

The weekend before the Beez men had two home games that included their only loss for the season.

First up the Beez defeated Grafton Vikings 93–62. The Vikings stayed within reach for three quarters but the Beez ran away with the game in the last quarter.

But the following day the Valley Braves (White) got the better of the Beez, but only just. In an exciting score-by-score game the Valley Braves got the win 76–75.

Last Sunday also saw the Beez women hit the court for the second time this season, also up against the Lismore Storm. Despite a good all-round performance from the women they went down to the visitors 79–61.

The women have one win from two games.

The Beez travel to Ballina Indoor Sports Centre for their next encounters on October 28. The women get things started at 5pm before the men hit the courts at 7pm.
