In a dominant display St Brendan Shaw College has taken out the title of NSATIS boys 1sts champions at home against an unconvincing Marist outfit. St Brendans, through their point guard #4 Matt Zerna, controlled the tempo early with great shooting from the perimeter. Unfortunately, Marist let a few opportunities pass them by and the margin in the early part of the first half blew out to double figures. From there, Marist entered foul trouble and St Brendan's #12, J Morrison, dominated offensive rebounds and on the scoreboard from the paint. Valiant efforts to enthuse the Marist side through Mitch Stanley, Michael Bransden and Isaac Plant did not prove fruitful enough as they went into the half-time break 19 points in arrears of St Brendans. In the second half, Daniel Bransden stepped up for the blues, taking his individual tally to double figures. Alongside him, Jaylen Howard hit the scoreboard but it proved to be too little too late with St Brendan Shaw scoring freely to run out convincing second half winners.
Final score 60-32. Better players: M Bransden, D Bransden, J Howard, I Plant.
