Rosmini defeat Rangitoto in Zone 1 Premierships Final

Lacey Lowdown:

Rosmini College turned the tables on local rivals Rangitoto College to win the Schick Zone 1 Premierships Final 70-67 at North Shore Events Centre on Saturday.

The result is a reversal of the College Sport Auckland Premier final and will give Rosmini number one seeding at the Schick National Championships in October.

The result of a closely fought encounter was in doubt until the final play of the game.

Rehana Maxwell-Topia was presented with a couple of free throws with 7 seconds remaining on the clock and his team ahead 68-67. The Rosmini forward chose an unorthodox method to seal the win missing both freebies but somehow emerging, after a scramble under the hoop, with the ball and passing to the ever reliable Marvin Williams-Dunn who after being fouled took the more conventional route and iced the game from the foul line.

Rosmini had made the early running, a couple of Williams-Dunn threes helping them to a 16-13 first quarter lead.
