Cavaliers come home hard

All the big performers captured in one shot: Martin Tucker staggers to his feet after a mistimed pull shot. Matt Parrish, who ended up scoring the winning run, appeals for LBW as does wicket keeper Michael Nind. Nind scored a half century which proved vital in Souths running down Easts 171. At the bowlers end, Scott McLelland smashed a quickfire 36 for the Waratahs, hammering one ball onto the clubhouse roof.

The Casino Cavaliers are coming home with a wet sail this season. On the weekend they ended Ballina Bears season in the one-day competition and ruined it in the two-day comp. On Saturday they outrighted the seasiders on their home turf and on Sunday they demolished Lennox Head to leap into second place on the one-day ladder. Up until last round the Bears had been in the top four of both competitions but their loss to The Bar on Sunday ended their one-day season, and their two-day season hangs by a thread.

Marist Brothers fall from grace was abruptly halted on Sunday when they took the Hawks to the cleaners and earned themselves a semi final spot in the Byron Private Life one-day comp. Things had looked pretty grim for the brethren on Saturday when they were outrighted by a rampant Waratahs line-up. But their win on Sunday gave Brothers a chance to get amongst the silverware this year.

Souths also righted their ship on Sunday in the one-day competition, defeating Easts on the very last ball of the day. The long awaited match-up between first and second was a thriller, with each team providing the momentum at one time or another. The loss means Easts will be faced with a fired up Casino at Nielson Park on March 4. Meanwhile, Souths get the relatively easier game against Marist Brothers at Oakes Oval in a day/night game that Sunday.
