Westlake Girls High School and Massey High School reinforced their Auckland Secondary Schools Premier League top four spots with emphatic Round 5 wins on Friday.
Massey, led by Ramona Fuaivaa (23 points) and Alyesha Schuster (20 points) proved too strong for Auckland Girls Grammar winning 103-56.
An opening quarter lead of 18-9 in favour of the visitors was extended to 43-21 at the break Imogene Noble and Leah Patuwairua did most of the scoring for AGGS but contributions across the board from Massey were the order of the day.
Noble, the game’s highest scorer with 26 points, scored 11 of those in the third quarter but Kharylle Ruiz scored 8 points in the frame as Massey steadily built their lead.
Maxine Seuravatele and Hina Devery chipped in with points for AGGS but Massey had too many weapons and cruised to a fourth win of the season. Allyah Leusogi-Ape, Yzabelle Tevao and Tahlya Waikiki were the other Massey players in double figures.
AGGS 56– I Noble 26, L Patuwairua 12, H Devery 4, M Seuravatele 4
