NCC Ballers big win
NCC Ballers have one hand on the Barbados Netball Association’s Premier League trophy after defeating Pine Hill St Barnabas “A” 43-33 in a close, hard-fought match last night at the Netball stadium.
With both teams unbeaten, there was everything to play for and it was St Barnabas who seemed to want it more at the start. They had a free-flowing offence led by goal attack Damisha Croney who seemed to be everywhere at the same time.
St Barnabas came from four goals down to lock the score and eventually went ahead 10-8 at the end of the first. Over the next three quarters, there was nothing NCC could do to separate themselves from the girls in pink.
The scores were locked for most of the match. One team would go ahead and the other would pull them back.
Frustration started to mount on both sides, but the game was not out of reach.
NCC finally got it together in the dying minutes of the third quarter where they scored three straight, then opened the fourth with three more to take a decisive 32-26 lead. That was all they needed and then opened up to win by ten goals.
In the other Premier League match, CO Williams Rangers made a meal of Phoenix Games, beating them 67-43.
