Brewers Basketball sealed their place in the first final of the year with an aggregate 174-111 victory over Mold Magic.

They booked their spot  to face Deeside Dragons in the NWBA Cup final with a 71-54 second leg victory at Mold having won the first leg 103-57.

The result also completed an impressive treble for the Brewers, which saw them meet Mold in three consecutive league and cup games and emerge victorious in all three!

The game started tough for the Brewers, as Mold made adjustments having learned from their previous encounters. The result was a five point lead for the home side at the end of the first quarter.

But once the Brewers woke up to the fact they were in a game and couldn’t rest on their lead they took the game to their hosts. a 13-point swing in the second restored the Brewers lead on the day.

Despite getting into foul trouble the Brewers never let Mold back in. Despite the hosts MVP Dan Evans top scoring for the game with 26pts, he simply didn’t have the scoring support to close the gap.

Meanwhile Kevin Ozoemelam hit 21 to top score for the Brewers but it was the industrious speed and incisive cuts of Aaron Rey that earned the Brewers LMC Lighting and Electrical MVP award.

A footnote to the game even saw Brewers veteran Alec Doyle return to North Wales League action for the first time in almost a year for the fourth quarter.
