Saipan Southern High School bounced back from a heartbreaker in their last game, while the Marianas High School girls varsity made mincemeat of the Lady Manta Rays in the IT&E Interscholastic Boys High School Basketball League last Wednesday at the Marianas High School Gymnasium.

The Manta Rays didn’t give Da’ok Academy any quarter from the get-go and buried them under an avalanche of points and led 14-1 after the first 12 minutes of action. They did allow their counterparts to score 5 points in the second half, but SSHS continued to pour it on with an additional 22 points in the final half to finish the game with a 30-point win.

Frankie Satur led the Manta Rays with 10 points, while Rasg Asauo and Aaron Magno tossed in 5 and 4 markers, respectively. Jess Pua scored 4 points and Austin Cristopher 2 in the loss.

The Lady Dolphins, meanwhile, held SSHS scoreless in the second half en route to a 22-6 win. MHS led 14-6 after the first half and then put on the defensive clamps on the Lady Manta Rays in the second to come out with the 16-point win.

Angelyn Roligat paced MHS with 8 points with Marielle Lopez pumping in 7 markers in support. All of SSHS’ 6 points were scored by Janes Elias.
