Lacey Lowdown: MAGS ‘Robbed’ in Overtime
There were four good games in the third round of the Auckland Secondary Schools Boys Premier grade but none could match the finish at St Kentigern College. Mt Albert Grammar were Robb-ed of victory against St Kent’s as Kyle Robb scored the last five points of the game to clinch an exciting 68-66 overtime victory. With St Kent’s trailing 66-63 Robb banked a triple then was fouled after garnering a steal with 8 seconds left to play. He then showed a cool head by making the resulting free-throws to seal...
