The 9th Round wrap of the Auckland Schools Girl’s Senior A games, brought to you in conjunction with Northern Kāhu saw wins for Manurewa High School, Massey High School and Takapuna Grammar School.
Manurewa High had a good spread of scorers as they defeated Mt Roskill Grammar 74-34.
Led by 12 points from Beautiful Campbell, five other players contributed 8 points or more to the solid victory.
Shirley Tuilimu got Manurewa off to a good start with 6 first quarter points while Campbell tallied 8 in the second period and Waimihi Hetaraka-Brown scored 7 – Manurewa were 42 -21 ahead at half-time.
Nellie and Bree Ioane each scored 8 points in the first half for Mt Roskill but could do little to stem the tide in the second half as Manurewa ran away with the win.
Mt Roskill 34 – Nellie Ioane 14, Bree Ioane 12
Manurewa 74 – Campbell 12, Tuilimu 11, Psalm Maletino 10, Hetaraka-Brown 9, Alyssa Ualuheua 9, Lavinia Liufau 8
There was something symmetrical about the Takapuna performance as they scored precisely 22 points in each of the first three periods before tailing off with 13 in the fourth in a 79-42 win against One Tree Hill College.
Angelica Vahai and Milla Eckford were prominent for One Tree Hill in the early stages but 6 points each from Bailey Flavell, Qaizden Stephano and Manaia Watson meant Takapuna had a 22-11 first quarter lead.
Arabella Nevile and Amy McKenzie were to the fore in the second as the Takapuna advantage stretched out to 44-16 by half-time.
A triple from Eckford did little to slow the Takapuna momentum – points from numerous contributors increased the Taka advantage.
The league leaders eased to a ninth straight win but credit to OTH who outscored Taka in the fourth as Harriate Heta and Melaia Tuisuva found their scoring touch.
One Tree Hill 42 – Vahai 12, Heta 9, Eckford 7, Tuisuva 7
Takapuna 78 – McKenzie 21, Stephano 16, Flavell 10, Watson 9, Nevile 8, Mariah Parker 7
