After two postponements because of rain, Shottas United Netball Club got the chance to upset favourites Police Boys’ & Girls’ Club in the Ulric Sealy Zone final of the Barbados Workers’ Union Netball Competition on Wednesday night at the Netball Stadium.
Shottas exploited a subpar performance from Police Club to capture the crown 21-16 thanks to a match-high 16 goals from 21 attempts by Jahreal Rock who played the position of goal attack. Goal Shooter Romancia Odwin added four goals from nine attempts.
The Police Club played all but one of their nine rostered players after things started to unravel, with the versatile Donna Codrington actually playing three different positions as goal defence, goal keeper and finally goal shooter. 
Police Club made 24 shots at the goal with shooter Kay Reid scoring nine and Shamara Hall making seven from 12 attempts each.
Police Club led 5-4 and 10-9 in the first two quarters before Shottas took charge of the match to accelerate to 17-12 with mid-court pressure forcing the Police to turn over the ball and hand Shottas the contest and the crown. (KB)
