After losing one close game after another this season the Seymour Eagles basketball team finally got what they have deserved – a win. After going back and fourth the entire game, Seymour finished on top of the Gibbs Eagles by a score of 46-44 in a defensive struggle at Seymour.
The score was tied 12-12 at the end of the first quarter before Seymour took a very narrow lead of 22-21 at the half. Ben Knight scored eight in the second for the Eagles giving them the lead.
Seymour could only manage to increase the lead by two at the end of the third as they led 33-30 going into the fourth period.
In the fourth the Eagles seemed to be looking for a way to lose, missing seven out of eight free throws. Better free throw shooting would have given them a much more comfortable win.
“We were just glad to get a win tonight,” Seymour coach Tony Buell said. “The guys have been playing really hard, but crucial shots just haven’t been falling. Bizarre things have been happening at the end of games lately but not tonight. Tonight things went our way and we actually won a close game.”
Knight finished with a team high of 15 points while Ryan Lee added 11 and Devin Stewart accounted for nine.
