Springer move step closer
Defending champions Springer Memorial have taken a step towards retaining the Secondary Schools Netball League Under-15 title.
They advanced to the semi-finals after hammering The Lodge School 41-12 in a quarter-final match at the Netball Stadium yesterday
Fielding a bigger, taller and faster unit, Springer showed no mercy until the fourth quarter when coach Julie Phillips rested some of the starters. Zakiya Kirton scored 27 goals while Shakellia Smith added 14.
Springer will face Lester Vaughan on Tuesday in the semis after the Cane Garden team beat St Michael School 17-10 in the closest quarter-final game of the evening. The other matches saw Queen’s College defeating Combermere 31-19 and Graydon Sealy rolling over Princess Margaret 30-9.
