WITH?EVERYTHING to play for in the final quarter, Spooners Hill held their nerve and are the champions of the inaugural Barbados Netball Association (BNA) Fast5 Competition.
Playing at the Wildey Gymnasium last Sunday night for the winner-take-all prize of $1 000, Spooners Hill defeated the previously unbeaten Falcons 25-22 to bring an exciting close to the BNA’s opening ceremony for the 2013 season.
At the start of the third quarter, the scores were locked 18-18 as Spooners Hill fought their way back into a match Falcons led for most of the way.
Although Spooners Hill had the first pass, Sabreena Smith’s entry pass to Lydia Bishop was too long and Falcons converted at the other end.
The shooting duo of Latonia Blackman and Damisha Croney was an effective one for Falcons. Croney, at goal attack – there are no wing players in Fast5 –- seemed to be all over the court.
