The final round for the 2013 part of the Country Basketball League’s North East competition saw Seymour Blasters narrowly take home the honours.

In the round 10 match, the Blasters faced one of the league’s top teams, the Wodonga Wolves at the YMCA Wodonga Sports and Leisure Centre on Sunday, December 15.

‘‘It was a pretty tight struggle for most of the game, but we broke through in the third quater with a 12-14 point lead,’’ Hockley said.

In the final quarter, the Wodonga Wolves clawed back into the game, bringing the score to within four points, but the determined Blasters held on to stay in the lead, finishing with a win of eight points, 75-67.

Hockley said Robbie Sartori, Christian Brock and Tepuao Silver shone during the game.

‘‘It was (Brock’s) first full game back in a little while and he dominated the boards,’’ Hockley said.

Sartori scored 15 points, while Silver got 24.

The win secures the Blasters’ position in the top four teams of the Country Basketball League’s North East Competition.

Hockley said he’d anticipated a strong game from the Wolves, who were also sitting fairly high up on the ladder and were one of the top teams to beat this season.

‘‘They’ve only lost a couple of games,’’ he said.

The team will break for two weeks over Christmas before returning for round 11, with a home game against Castlemaine on January 4 at the Seymour Sports and Aquatic Centre.
