The Maryborough Blazers have had their first loss of the 2018-19 Country Basketball League season, going down by just two points to the Kyneton Tigers.
The narrow 72-70 loss came as the Blazers played their first away game for the season in round three.
As always, coach Brady Neill had much to contribute to the Blazers’ score, racking up 21 points.
Matt Johnston wasn’t far behind, bringing in 15 points while Harrison Butler made 10.
Liam Murphy had his highest scoring match so far this season with nine points, while Michael Duncan and Tom Hurse contributed five points apiece.
Lachlan Drummond (4) and Jacob Lohmann (1) also managed to hit the board.
The Blazers have still held onto first place on the North West Men division’s ladder, on the same amount of wins and losses as second placed Echuca Pirates, thanks to a healthy percentage.
