Blasters blow away cobwebs after Christmas break against Gators.CHALPAT SONTI January 17, 2013 4:42am
The Seymour mens and womens basketball sides showed the Christmas break had done them little harm by completing the double over Shepparton on Saturday night.
The Blasters blew the Gators away in the first quarter of the mens game, scoring 26-8. While Shepparton came back to within six at half time, Seymour had enough of a break and defeated the reigning champions 54-51.
Christian Brock led the way with 17 points, with Brett O’Donnell (11) and Robbie Sartori (10) also reaching double figures.
A pleasing aspect after an inury-riddled first part of the season was that the Blasters had a full-strength side on court.
Shepparton made the better start, leading 21-16, 36-32 and 51-44 at the first three breaks but a 20-7 final term brought Seymour home with the victory.
Tess Feery and Kathryn Hard top scored with 14 points each, while Nikki McDonald and Kallyn Gent got 10 apiece.
