Make that four out of four.

Barbados Gems maintained their 100 per cent winning record in the Americas Netball World Cup Qualifier last night with victory over the previously unbeaten St Vincent and the Grenadines at the Wildey Gymnasium last night.

The victory followed blowouts over Argentina, Canada and St Maarten. (HG)
