Mt Albert Girls down Westlake



My spies tell me that the Girls Premier Grade make up game from round one between Mt Albert Grammar and Westlake on Monday night was a high quality encounter.

Played at MAGS the first half was extremely tight with the first quarter tied 20 points apiece and the hosts just shading the half 35-34.

Jada Manase, 12 points in the half, and Jordyn Maddix exchanged a pair of threes in that opening half with a late trey from Riana Rangi-Brown keeping MAGS in front. Guard Emme Shearer was prominent for the visitors with a dozen points at the break.

Opposing forwards Sophie Dil and Sharne Pupuke-Robati profited in the paint early in the third but with a couple of late buckets from Trinity Peau MAGS edged to a narrow 55-50 three-quarter time lead.

Shearer scored eight final quarter points for Lake but Peau matched that, Rangi-Brown added six and Monica Kelly iced a MAGS win with a late triple.

MAGS are now 3-0 and join Massey High and Auckland Girls Grammar at the top of the table. The MAGS v Massey match up on Friday should be a good one with both teams in good form. Also on Friday Westlake will host Orewa.

Score: MAGS 75 – Peau 21, Rangi-Brown 16, Manase 8, Pupuke-Robati 12

Westlake 61 – Shearer 22, Davidson 9, Maddix 8, S Dil 8
