Seymour basketballers dispose of Deniliquin but women can't keep going against Echuca.CHALPAT SONTI November 29, 2012 12:00am
In the end, it was no contest.
Despite being riddled with injury, and having some of its under-18 players away at the state training camp at Ballarat, Seymour’s mens basketball side made light of the long road trip to hammer Deniliquin 101-36 on Sunday.
The Blasters had control of the game from the outset, with Robbie Sartori on fire on his way to 33 points for the game.
Sartori’s brother Marc and Jack Murphy chimed in with 18 apiece, as Seymour took a 49-14 lead into the long break.
Coach Craig Hockley, who was at the Ballarat camp, was happy with the way things went.
‘‘We only had seven players, but Julian Connors came back to play, and were were just too strong and quick,’’ he said.
The Blasters will regain players for this week’s game, at Maryborough on Sunday. However, its key injured players won’t be seen until after Christmas.
Nikki McDonald scored 27 points, Tess Feery 26 and Rosie O’Sullivan 22 as the side, despite having just seven players, was far too good for the Giants.
The Lady Blasters outscored Deniliquin 29-2 in the second quarter as it set up a 54-11 lead by half-time, and things stayed that way in the second term.
While Feery and McDonald dominated early, seeing Seymour go into the long break up 44-33, the Lady Pirates had control of the game for the second half.
A late three-pointer to Kallyn Gent got Seymour within three with seconds to go, but free throws to Echuca following technical fouls saw the game come to an end.
