Led by Sharne Robati Mt Albert Grammar School were in dominant form against Orewa College. Robati scored the opening six points for her team and had a dozen by half-time as her team forged a 56-17 lead at the interval.
MAGS had contributions right across the board, including six final quarter points from Abigail Roache, as they cruised to a 77-26 win. Captain Katie Diakhaby was the best for the plucky Orewa side scoring 12 points and Ariana Henare chipped in with 9 points.
Final Score: MAGS 77 – Robati 24, T Tomokino 14, Trinity Paeu 10 Orewa College 26 – Diakhaby 12, Henare 9,
Robyn Blackstock and Bella Elgar combined for 13 first quarter points as Rangitoto College raced to a 25-9 first quarter lead at home to Masey High School.
Terina Aratangi landed a couple of threes for Massey in the second quarter but it did little to halt the Rangi momentum. Led by a dozen first half points from guard Riana Rangi-Brown the hosts bossed the game with an 48-21 half time lead.
Riana’s younger sister wasn’t to be overshadowed, Harmony scoring all Massey’s third quarter points and also blocking one of big sister’s shots – much to the delight of the Massey bench.
However it would be Riana who would have the final say leading all scorers as Rangi romped to a convincing win. Kaitlin Burgess put an exclamation mark on the victory with a triple to round out the Rangi scoring.
Final Score – Rangitoto 80 – R Rangi-Brown 18, Tabitha Jenkins 11, Kaitlyn Morrell 11, Bella Elgar 11 Massey 41 – Aratangi 9, H Rangi-Brown 8, Shauna Povey 8, Ramona Fuaivaa 6
After last week’s home loss to Auckland Grammar, Westlake returned to the winners podium with a 63-42 victory against Avondale College.
Tiarna Clarke would drop four triples on the night and a brace of them early settled the Westlake nerves as they forged a 20-9 first period advantage increased to 32-23 at the break.
A couple of baskets each from Emme Shearer and Alesha Nathan in the third helped keep Avondale at bay despite the concerted efforts of Mariah and Teneva Ropati. The two combined for 32 points but a much more balanced Westlake scoring effort; they had nine contributors against Avondale’s six helped take them to victory.
Final Score – Avondale 42 – M Ropati 20, T Ropati 12 Westlake 63 – Clarke 20, Rosie Davison 9, Shearer 9, Nathan 8
