THREE IN A ROW - FONOTI BRACE SEALS TITLE:
Mount Albert Grammar School sealed their third consecutive
Premier League Championship win at King's College. Striker Damien
Fonoti struck twice in the first half with a header after 4
minutes and a 35th minute rocket to give MAGS a comfortable 2 - 0
half time lead.
They appeared to take their foot off the pedal and were punished
for their mistake as early as the 48th minute when Kings striker
John Niyonsaba rifled home a fierce shot past a prostrate Arran
Rowley in the MAGS goal.
MAGS survived a second half of King's efforts to equalise. One
free kick rattled the woodwork before eventually being cleared.
MAGS now will be looking to complete another Cup and League

"MAGS FALTER AT SECOND-TO-LAST HURDLE"
Coach Kevin Fallon was forced to reshuffle his team for the vital
top of the table clash at Alberton Avenue on a top surface. MAGS
were minus their two regular centre backs Sam Campbell and
Michael Boxall. Van Lindsay came into the team, as did Josh Smith
to captain the team and play in the Centre Midfield.
The first half was a dour battle with a couple of chances for
both sets of forwards. None could break the deadlock.
Half time score: 0 - 0
Nine minutes into the second half Auckland Grammar caught the
Mount Albert defence napping. Mathews played a ball in behind a
poorly positioned Van Lindsay. His winger got in behind him and
shot far post for the goal to give
AGS a 1 - 0 lead that they hung onto to take all three points to
keep their title aspirations alive.
For MAGS they have another opportunity to clinch their third
consecutive tiltle with a win at Kings on Saturday. On this kind
of form I would not bet on the outcome; as a unit they looked

Vs Rangitoto College: Saturday 2nd September:
Rangitoto College coach Paul Seaman predicted his team would be
at it's strongest today to play top of the table Mount Albert
Grammar School. They certainly opened strongly and for the first
twenty minutes looked as if they would be a hard nut to crack.
A brilliant Damien Fonoti header from a pin point accurate Skye
Parmenter cross in the 38th minute separated the two teams.
Unfortunately MAGS had to reshuffle their rear-guard with stopper
Sam Campbell replaced by young midfield player Zane Sole due to
Half time: MAGS 1 Rangitoto 0.
In the first second half attack it was Malcolm MacRae, played in
by striker Damien Fonoti, who outpaced the visitors left flank to
have his cross brilliantly converted by Mark Withers. From this
point onwards MAGS dominated. The second half was packed with
three more goals to Mark Withers, Tim Schaeffers and Man of the
Match Troy Smith.
Michael Boxall and coach Kevin Fallon were given their marching
orders by a referee who exasperated the home support particularly
with a blatant penalty appeal after winger Gichin Fuhiniu was
chopped down after beating the visitors right fullback.
MAGS coped brilliantly for a comprehensive victory.

On a bone-hard surface at St
Kentigern College MAGS started the countdown to their third
consecutive Auckland Premier League Championship.
It took 63 minutes before St Kentigern College looked to be
chasing a lost cause. Down 1-0 at half time to a well struck Josh
Smith goal, St Kent's tried to match their opponents.
In the 58th minute Skye Parmenter latched onto a Damien Fonoti
glancing header lashing it into the St Kentigern goal. The game
looked all over.
In the very next attack MAGS goalkeeper Arran Rowley got himself
involved in a terrible tangle on the corner of his 18 yard box,
courtesy of some poor defending. The diminutive St Kentigern
striker nipped in to clip the ball into an empty net with Rowley,
Boxall and Campbell looking speechless.
Skye Parmenter came to the rescue once again. MAGS swept
downfield and Parmenter kicked the ball into the top corner of
the St Kentigern goal to give MAGS a two goal cushion again.
Substitute Gichin Fuhiniu carved out his first goal for the MAGS

High School: Saturday 5th August
Mount Albert Grammar School striker Damien Fonoti was too
much for Westlake Boys High School today at Alberton Ave.
His four goal tally was the feature in a game where the North
Shore team struggled to even get a strike on target.
Fonoti scored in the 3rd, 6th, 66th and 82 minute. All the goals
were contstructed by the deadly duo for MAGS down the left flank
namely Skye Parmenter and Rhys Ruka.
On this form it is difficult to look past the Mount Albert team
not completing a "hat trick" of Premier League Championship wins.
The back four were ably marshalled by Captain, Michael Boxall in
midfield Josh Smith was everything and up front the powereful

Vs St Peters College: Saturday 22nd July.
Livewire Midfield player Josh Smith
was too much for a lively St Peters team today at Keith Hay Park.
The game kicked off in beautiful sunshine with the home team
adoptiing a 3-5-2 formation anchored by their captain Tim Brown.
It was MAGS who went ahead in the 14th minute when a Josh Smith
shot was handled in the penalty area.Smith converted the penalty
himself. Five minutes later Smith fed big Mark Withers who kept a
cool head to slip the ball past the hapless St Peter's goal
Half time: MAGS 2, St Peters 0.
After the interval the MAGS domination of the ball continued. The
central pairing in defence of Jonathan Raj (who replaced an
injured Sam Campbell in the 30th minute) and Captain Michael
Boxall snuffed out the St Peters attack.
Boxall was most unfortunate to receive a caution in the 61st
minute. After Skye Parmenter scored a delightful direct free-kick
. It was a bizarre decision by the referee who until then was
having a solid game. Boxall's booking was for wasting time.
MAGS substituted Damien Fonoti with Troy Smith and Josh Smith
being pushed foward in the attack.
It proved to be a good move, Smith got his second goal in the
69th minute from 10 yards out. Mark Withers added the fourth
chesting in a Rhys Ruka far post cross. With two minutes to go
Smith chested down a superb Tim Schaeffers cross inside the box,
to shoot home left footed for his hat trick.

Young 15yr old striker Mark Withers added to his growing
stature with yet another "hat trick" today at Alberton Ave.He
completed his hat trick in the 76th minute courtesy of a Damien
Fonoti shot that had rebounded off the cross bar.

"MAGS Back on Top"
The feature of todays 6 - 2 victory
for MAGS over Rangitoto College was a four goal tally by burly
striker Mark Withers.
On a poor surface MAGS dominated the first 45 minutes going into
the break with a deserved 4 - 0 lead. Josh Smith opened the
scoring in the 21st minute latching onto a badly directed back
header. Smith kept his composure and rounded the Rangitoto
goalkeeper to put his team ahead.
Two more goals, both by Withers were scored before the half hour
mark and a Skye Parmenter 43rd minute cross was headed home by
Malcolm MacRae at the far post.
Half time: Rangitoto College 0, MAGS 4.
A mini revival by a fired up Rangitoto College saw them acquit
themselves better in the second half. Their first goal came in
tne 62nd minute when a poor Jonathan Raj defensive header was
taken advantage of. It stuck in the mud and quickly lashed home
past a static MAGS keeper.
One more Mark Withers goal made it 5 - 1 before the most bizarre
goal of the afternoon saw Tim Schaeffers power home a header from
a corner of the goal past Arran Rowley.
The final goal in the 85th minute saw substitute Sammy Ho cross
perfectly to Mark Withers head. The young striker made no
mistakes from 6 yards out.

MAGS were far too powerful for a St Kentigern team who are still
chasing their first win. MAGS led 5 - 0 at the interval and could
have doubled their score if their strikers converted half the
chances that came their way.
Prior to half time only a Josh Smith goal was from the strike

The first half was dominated by MAGS with right winger Malcolm
MacRae returning from injury giving the team a
1 - 0 half time lead.
It was a well deserved lead with Captain Michael Boxall
marshalling his team which looked at times as if they were going
to over run the home team.
The turning point was a miraculous toip corner save by the
Grammar keeper from a free kick struck by Skye Parmenter. His
save (pictured below) appeared to be the example for his team
mates to follow.
After half time the tide turned with Auckland Grammar midfield

If Mount Albert Grammar School thought defending their League

promoted MacLeans College.
MAGS Coach Kevin Fallon praised the East Auckland school saying "
They are the best newly promoted team I have seen in ten years."
MAGS went ahead in the 23rd minute when Josh Smith fired home in
the bottom left hand corner of the net.
MacLeans were not to be denied taking full advantage of some poor
distribution they equalised on the half hour.
Dangerous striker Jason Corliss taking the opportunity from a
Arran Rowley faux pas, following up a mishandled shot. Worse was
to come when MacLeans converted a far post free kick. It was that
man Jason Corliss again, out jumping Malcolm MacRae at the far
post to notch home the second.
Half time: MAGS 1, MacLeans College 2.
True Champions fight back and MAGS proved to be true champions.
The equaliser came from a rampant Josh Smith whose well struck
drive was deflected in.
Not content with a draw MAGS replaced defender Skye Parmenter and
debutant striker Zane Sole with big Damien Fonoti and another
debutant Mark Withers. It proved to be an inspired move.
Minutes later Damien Fonoti latched on to an Arran Rowley kick
