By on November 12, 2008 in High School

The derby match between Pretoria Boys’ High School and the visiting St Alban’s did not produce much thrills in fact it was more the home side meting out punishment to their opponents.

In the final game of the season between the rival city schools Boys’ High triumphed 38-25 over St Alban’s to end their unbeaten season on a high.

The home side took control of the game from first quarter, and never relinquished their lead at any point in the game. Guard Lefatse Shakung lead in scoring for the hosts in the first ten minutes scoring six points, while Leslie Nteta added one basket to his name for the 8-4 lead at the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter Boys’ High stepped up the pace in the game, Nteta was given free reign by the visitor’s defence to score his six points in this quarter, while Fhumi Maboho, Mpelegeng Ngwato and Brian Tsabadi all contributed two points each for the hosts to take an 11 point lead.

A three pointer by Sandile Magagula was the best St Alban’s could do as they found the home side’s defence to be uncharitable as the final score in the second quarter was 18-7 in favour of Boys’ High.

The third quarter saw Boy’s High begin to build an unassailable lead in the game with a three pointer by Shakung and centre Ngwato and team captain Tsabadi scored four points each to ensure that the home side stayed on the victory course.

St Alban’s eventually reached double figures in the third stanza with Khuliso Ramasha being the top scorer for the visitor’s with four points, but Boys’ were still in the lead with the scores at 28-14.

In the fourth quarter the home side had the game wrapped up, Tsabadi top scored with four points for Boys’ High, while the visitors managed to score 11 points to put some respectability score line. Final score: PBHS 38 – 25 St Albans
