Boag buoys Magic to win over league-leading Lakeside Lightning

Some brilliance from star centre Carly Boag lifted the Mandurah Magic women to a win over the ladder-leading Lakeside Lightning on Saturday night.

Fresh off a loss to Rockingham the night before, the Magic seemed in no mood to suffer consecutive defeats, as they conjured a superb final quarter to see them to a stunning 71-42 win.

Mandurah went into the final term leading by 10 points, but they put the result beyond question when they outscored Lakeside 23-4 in the final period to take a whopping 29-point victory.

But it was a slow start for the home side, as the Lightning came firing out of the blocks on a 16-3 run.

A lack of scoring saw the Magic head into the first break down by six points, but they flipped the script in the second with Boag, Kelly Bailey, Delany Junkermier and Bree Klasztorny leading the way.

The quartet combined for all of Mandurah's 20 points in the second term, before Casey Mihovilovich took over in the third.

The star veteran scored nine points for the quarter as the Magic assumed control, taking a 10-point buffer into the end of the third.

But it was in the fourth quarter that Mandurah truly got rolling, outscoring Lakeside by 19 for the period.

Boag was masterful with nine points in the period, while Rachel Halleen and Emma Klasztorny found ways to hit the scoreboard.

Mandurah would eventually romp to the sizable victory, which lifts them to a 6-7 record and keeps their hopes of playing finals a reality in seventh spot.

Boag ended the night with 21 points and 12 rebounds, enough to lead both teams in each category, while Mihovilovich's masterful passing secured her a double-double with 10 points, 10 assists and four rebounds.

Junkermier (12 points, four rebounds, four steals) and Halleen (nine points, two rebounds, three assists) were both productive off the bench for the Magic.

Mandurah now heads into their second straight double-header, with games against the South West and Joondalup on their round 14 schedule.
