The Round 10 Senior A Boys report, brought to you in conjunction with Dynamic Sport New Zealand features just the two games.
He’s done it again! Last month Northcote guard Aaron Sievert knocked down 10 threes against Manurewa High in what was believed to be a Senior A record.
The shooting guard dropped another 10 on Friday as Northcote defeated Macleans College 92-52.
Sievert’s intent was shown in the opening period with three made triples in a blistering 25-11 opening from Northcote.
Jamie Carville knocked down a triple for Macleans in the second but Sievert had the hot hands and drained another four to take Northcote to a 45-25 half-time lead.
Levi Smyth was prominent for Macleans after the break although Tane Cook and Dontaye Sowman-Faaee kept Northcote rolling – the lead 69-39.
Sievert made his tenth trey in the fourth and with Cook and Tyler Aitchison also converting from beyond the arc it was an eighth win in ten outings for Northcote.
Macleans 52 – Carville 14, Smyth 11, Christian Mutti 10
Northcote 92 – Sievert 39, Cook 11, Tom Bates 13, Sowman-Faaee 10
Another major contribution from skipper Scott Errey (37 points) guided St Peter’s College to an 86-64 home win against Aorere College.
Dorian Sula scored the opening 6 points for the Saints but threes from Jovanni Prasad and Chris Gordon got Aorere off to a 16-13 start in their favour.
Gordon took his tally into double figures – likewise Errey who had good support from Cobai David as St Peter’s took a narrow lead (30-28) into the interval.
Saints piled on 32 points in the third quarter to break the game open – Errey was unstoppable with 25 points in the spell.
Moroki Tauhara scored a dozen points either side of the three-quarter break but Bailey Smith and Milan Tolich countered any Aorere moves.
St Peter’s now with 10 straight wins.
St Peter’s 86 – Errey 37, Tolich 13, Sula 11, Bailey Smith 8
Aorere 64 – Tauhara 22, C Gordon 19, Jesse M 8, TJ M 6
