The Seymour Blasters have walked away with two wins after a double-header clash with Castlemaine and Maryborough on the weekend.
Despite the heat forcing the games to be reduced to eight-minute quarters, the Blasters played two strong games, taking early leads and staying in front on the scoreboard.
Top scorers for Saturday’s clash against the Castlemaine Cannons was TePuao Silver, 17, Robbie Sartori, 11 and Max Vittali, 8.
‘‘In the first quarter, we got off to a good start. Castlemaine challenged the team, but the Blasters’ experienced players helped keep the scoreboard in check.
The Blasters took a 10-12 point lead early into the game and held it to finish 72-48.
Jordan Hockley said Jack Huxtable played his best game so far, shooting nine points.
The Blasters followed the same plan of attack on Sunday against the Maryborough Blaze, taking an early lead and finishing 81-46.
‘‘We really ran the floor well and penetrated to the basket and they couldn’t handle our offensive transitions,’’ Hockley said.
Top scorers for the match were Robbie Sartori on 18 and Jordan Hockley and Matt Boland each on 12.
‘‘(Maryborough) took the first couple, 7-2, but then we found our form,’’ Hockley said.
The weekend’s results leave the competition for the top four spots on the ladder even closer, with each team sitting on three losses a piece.
‘‘It’s even tighter now because (top team) Albury lost to Castlemaine on Sunday,’’ Hockley said.
‘‘It’s becoming a four-way battle for top spot. It will come down to the last game we play.’’
The Blasters will head to Echuca this weekend to take on the Pirates at Echuca.
