Cricket: Lindsay and Lewis lash out for Lennox Head
THE Andrew Lindsay and Sam Lewis combination continued to shine in the top order for Lennox Head in Far North Coast LJ Hooker League cricket at the weekend.
Lennox Head dominated in a 152-run win over Marist Brothers at Megan Crescent Oval, Lennox Head.
Lindsay scored 107 and Lewis 43 as the Pirates put 253 on the board from their 40 overs in the round of one-day games.
Leg-spinner Travis Clarke did the damage with the ball, taking 5-29 as Marist Brothers were rolled for 101.
Lewis has been a revelation this season; he scored a ton when he opened the batting against Alstonville in the first round while Lindsay scored 73 that day.
The win on Saturday kept Lennox top of the ladder while the early loss of talented batsman Lewin Maladay was compensated by Adam Fisher's 38.
Lennox will be without Maladay and Daniel Emms for now but still have James Everingham to come back into the side.
In other games, Tintenbar East-Ballina dug in its heels at home to beat Pottsville.
Pottsville were up for the game with Jayden Hoare scoring 92.
Steven Lahey took three wickets for 'the Bar as Pottsville finished with 7-208 from their 40 overs.
The run chase got off to a shaky start before teenager Callum Carmont steadied the ship with 59.
Captain Nathan Hoey continued his strong start to the season with an unbeaten 76 and returning all-rounder Brett Crawford hung around for 39 not out to help get them home with 22 balls to spare.
Elsewhere, Ballina Bears took the points against the Casino Cavaliers in a low-scoring affair at Queen Elizabeth Park, Casino.
Captain Sam Irvine fared best of the Cavaliers batsman with his 32 dragging the side to a total of 108.
Bears also struggled, with opener Jonny Phelps the standout with a determined 48.
The only other Ballina batsman to reach double figures was captain Justin Moore (17).
For the Cavs, young quick Tom Carlton took four wickets and veteran Al Nowlan three.
And Cudgen proved too strong for Alstonville in a six-wicket win at Hill Park Oval, Wollongbar.
Captain Mitchell Pickford (31) and all-rounder Jason Caught (34) helped Alstonville to a total of 135.
Josh Pearce took three wickets as Cudgen cruised to 4-141.
