The Lennox Head second grade had their first loss for the season on the weekend but remain in second place on the ladder behind the Tweed Banora Colts.

Taking on the fourth-placed Cudgen Hornets at home on Megan Crescent Oval last Saturday, Lennox Head won the toss and decided to bat.

The side was bowled out in the 38th over for 215 with Adam Fisher (54 runs), Nicholas Winkler-Maloney (37) and Zac Gilmore (35) scoring the top runs.

Cudgen’s Jack O’Shea took 4/42 off seven overs.

In reply Cudgen lost an early wicket when Conor McDowell was caught out with the score on seven. But Heath Wilson’s 50 and a late charge from the eight-wicket partnership of Michell Anderson (30NO) and Cameron Dooley (53NO) got the side to the winning total in the last over of the day.

Byron Bay remain in second place on the ladder after they had a win last Saturday,  chasing down Bangalow’s 178 with three overs to spare. Byron’s best bowlers were Brendan Mitchell (3/23) and Jason Trisley (3/47) while Bangalow’s Reid Campbell top-scored with 46.

Byron’s Tom Mc George controlled the chase with 79 NO, while Mitchell Barnes set the platform with 63 runs.
