The Seymour Blasters are through to the finals of the Country Basketball League’s North East competition after an easy win over the Wodonga Wolves.
The Blasters sailed through the game, holding a comprehensive lead of at least 10-20 points to win 97-68 and finishing second on the ladder.
Coach Craig Hockley said it was an excellent result, considering the Wolves’ high position on the ladder.
‘‘Right from the first quarter, we had an 8-0 lead, we got out in front and they could never catch up,’’ he said.
The Blasters gained their unassailable lead after Matt Boland shot an impressive six three-pointers in the game’s first half.
Top scorers for the match were Matt Boland, Robbie Sartori and TePuao Silver.
Hockley said defensively the team’s big guys, including Christian Brock and Zac Pell, controlled the scoreboards, while the whole team contributed to the offensive efforts.
Seymour will now face Shepparton Gators this Saturday night and Hockley said he was expecting a tough match.
‘‘This is the third year in a row we’ve played the Gators and the last two times, we’ve lost,’’ he said.
For the 2013-2014 season, the teams have a one-all record, each winning a home game.
‘‘It could go either way,’’ Hockley said.
‘‘If we play the way we played last week, we should be able to win.’’
