Senior A Boys – Round 14 wrap

The Senior A regular season has concluded but there appears to be an unplayed game between Manurewa High School and Avondale College. The result of that game will determine the semi-final line-ups – St Peters College and Northcote College are confirmed in the top two positions.

St Peter’s College completed an unbeaten regular season with a 105-66 home win against Manurewa High School.

St Peter’s were out the gate quickly establishing a 27-21 advantage and were close to top gear in the second to lead 47-32 at half-time despite 10 points from Manurewa’s William Passi and 9 from Brian Tapu.

Scott Errey led all scorers at the break with 18 points.

The second half produced a career night for Andrei Manio who knocked down six threes on his way to 33 points. 

Cobain David joined in the three-point frenzy in the final period – all 12 of his points coming from shots made from beyond the arc.

Alex Hughes top scored for Manurewa but it was a night when his team came off second best.
