Seymour Blasters have taken home an easy, sixth consecutive win after facing Echuca Pirates in Echuca on Saturday.
They won by a 23-point margin, with a score of 92-69.
Coach Craig Hockley said there wasn’t much defence happening from either team in the high-scoring game.
‘‘Our scoring power was too much for them,’’ he said.
Top scorers for the team were Marc Sartori on 30, Brett O’Donnell on 21 and Jack Murphy on 19.
Hockley said the team had several players out for the match, including Matt Boland, TePuao Silver and Jordan Hockley.
He said a couple of players, including Murphy, O’Donnell and Sartori, really stepped up their level of play to compensate for the missing team members.
Hockley said the team hadn’t anticipated too much of a challenge from the Pirates, who are currently ranked sixth on the ladder, despite it not being one of the Blaster’s preferred venues.
‘‘We’ve always struggled at Echuca, but this time it was pretty free-flowing,’’ he said.
This Saturday, the Blasters will be taking on the Wodonga Wolves, one of the competition’s top teams, at home.
‘‘If we win, we’ll finish second and host a home final against Shepparton,’’ Hockley said.
‘‘If we lose, we could either finish second or third and face an away game, depending on how it all falls together.’’
