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.

Earlier St Kent’s had given up a ten points lead in the fourth quarter to a fast finishing MAGS as Mandela Baledrokadroka and Xjana Luamanuvae-Su’a sliced through the home team defence to tie the game at 56 apiece in the regulatory 40 minutes.
