Keegan Hall, Luca Becker and Tim Stumbles kept the scoreboard moving in the third quarter but Liston really got into their rhythm, pouring on the points to be comfortably ahead at the end of the third quarter. Long Bay outscored Liston in the final quarter by five points.
In the final score, Liston College won 67 to Long Bay’s 50 points. Top scorers were George De Felice with 11, Keegan Hall with 10, Ethan Clifford with eight and Luca Becker seven points.
