One-day final now tomorrow at Oakes Oval
THE final of the Byron Private Life one-day cricket competition between leading Lismore clubs Eastern Districts and Southern Districts at Oakes Oval has been brought forward to tomorrow.
Originally scheduled to be played after the Under-19 interdistrict final between Lismore and Ballina on Sunday, both sides agreed to the move because they have a number of players selected for representative duty.
Sunday will still be used as a reserve day in case the final tomorrow is affected by rain.
The two teams are dominating the local competition. They also fill the top two spots in the two-day Far North Coast LJ Hooker (Ballina) League.
Easts won through to the one-day final with a 94-run victory over the Casino Cavaliers on Sunday, while Souths beat Marist Brothers by 33 runs.
The final at Oakes Oval tomorrow is scheduled to start at 4.30pm.
n The Hooker League competition rounds will be completed on Saturday, with Easts and Souths backing up against each other at Nielson Park, East Lismore. Souths are 6-225.
At Lennox Head, the home team is 0-4 in reply to the Casino Cavaliers' 219, while in the all-Ballina clash at Kingsford Smith Park, Bears will be chasing Tintenbar-East Ballina's 206.
In Lismore, Norths-Goonellabah made 187 against Brothers at Nesbitt Park and Workers hit 232 against Alstonville at Oakes Oval.
