The 10th Round wrap of the Auckland Schools Girl’s Senior A games, brought to you in conjunction with Northern Kāhu, saw wins for Northcote College, Massey High and Takapuna Grammar.
Angelica Vahai scored a game high 38 points but it wasn’t enough to prevent One Tree Hill College being defeated 82-60 by Northcote College.
Northcote stamped their authority on proceedings with a 27-6 first quarter blitz – 9 points for DJ Hannah in the period.
Vahai was up to 16 points by half-time but Northcote, with 11 points from Nikki Gear in the second frame, had an unassailable 49-20 advantage at that stage.
Harriate Heta landed a triple for OTH soon after the interval but Northcote countered through Lizzie May as the score climbed to 68-41 and an eighth win of the season assured.

Despite having to play the closing minutes with four players – due to foul trouble – Massey High School were able to defeat Auckland Girls Grammar 66-56.
Fuschia Traill made 7 first quarter points for AGGS but triples from Faith Williams, Zhoey Tilby-Woods and Allyah Leusogi-Ape propelled Massey to a 29-17 lead.
Massey could only manage 7 points in the second – Faith Hurt almost matched that on her own for AGGS who closed to within 3-points at the break (36-33).
The momentum stayed with AGGS in the third as they carried a narrow 47-46 lead into the last quarter.
Leusogi-Ape would go on to dominate the final period. The Northern Kāhu Development Player scored 15 of her game high 35 points in the last ten minutes to earn the win and strengthen Massey’s top-4 prospects.
