MURWILLUMBAH U14s are back in the winnersa circle with a tight victory over the fancied Tintenbar East Ballina side last week.

The visitors won the toss and batted, scoring 121 off 30 overs. It was good team effort with top contributions from both Tom OaKeefe and Jack Sims scoring 30.

Tintenbar-East Ballina started their run chase well; however, the visiting attack slowed them down mid-way through their innings with Oliver Twohill and Alex Thomson bowling with good control and each taking a wicket.

Tom OaKeefe rounded off a great game with bowling figures of four overs for seven runs, with Jai Dixon taking 2-15 off three overs.
