The Seymour Blasters under-14 team have taken out honours at the Shepparton Junior Basketball Tournament in December, winning all their matches for a berth in the grand final.

The boys took five wins from five games to advance straight into Sunday’s grand final against Swan Hill, who had also won all their games in the pool.

It was a tough game, with the score changing many times throughout the game, but the Blasters boys were not going to let this one slip.

They had worked hard over the weekend, defeating some big name teams such as Bendigo and Mildura to make it into the grand final.

The Blasters came home as the better team in the second half, with some fantastic defending and really strong ball-handling skills.

In the end, they outscored Swan Hill by 10 points, 38-28, to win their first final of the year.

In addition, Sam Durham also received a most valuable player award.
