Bajan U-16s on roll
MAKE THAT three on the trot.
Barbados’ Under-16 netballers are definitely on a roll now.
The girls in aquamarine and gold cruised to a 35-24 victory over Dominica yesterday morning, their third successive win at the Caribbean Netball Association Jean Pierre Under-16 Tournament in Antigua and Barbuda.
Zakyia Kirton got her first start at the tournament and scored 18 goals from 28 attempts, while goal attack Sheniqua Thomas scored 17 from 24.
For Dominica, Anoushka Bootswain scored 19 from 24 and Ihana Honore five from ten.
On Monday night, Barbados had moved their record to 2-0 after beating St Vincent and the Grenadines 30-20.
Shakeillia Smith scored 19 goals from 28 attempts, captain Sheniqua Thomas ten from 20, and Alyssa Bynoe the other.
For St Vincent, Khady Williams was very accurate, scoring 20 goals from 22 attempts. Yanneisha Scipio did not convert any of her seven attempts.
In the opening game Sunday, the Bajans had totally dominated St Kitts 36-16.
Barbados’ next match will be against powerhouses Jamaica tomorrow night, a contest which will be the perfect measuring stick in determining just where they stand on regional junior netball’s totem pole.
