More woe for ‘Wolves’
LIFE continues to be miserable at the top for Wolverines B in the Barbados Workers’ Union’s Netball League, with the team being trounced by Transformers 43-27 on Sunday night at the Netball Stadium.
Wolverines B are yet to taste victory in Division 1 in the Roy Trotman Zone and an injury to key goal attack Kelly Knight saw them struggling to keep pace with some strategic playing from Transformers.
Barbados juniors and students of the Springer Memorial School, Shakeillia Smith and Khadijah Domingo, tamed the Wolverines in the shooting circle.
Smith scored a game-high 24 from 33 as goal shoot while goal attack Domingo sank 19 from 31.
Rashida Ali scored 23 from 36 as goal shoot for Wolverines while Knight made one of four before being replaced by Kelly Harewood, who made three goals from four shots.
Transformers had led 12-9, 21-10, and 33-20 before taking their first win in three games.
Earlier, Division 2 Chickmont Ballers continued their unbeaten run in the Linda Brooks Zone but had to settle for a 28-28 draw in a see-saw game against Action Ballers.
After trailing 6-8 and 12-15, Chickmont locked the scores at 19 and 28.
Alicia Adams scored 17 of 22 and Latoya Williams made 11 of 14 for Action Ballers, while Nicole Graham-Weekes responded with 18 of 24 and Marion Johnson-Hurley scored 10 of her 12 shots for Chickmont.
Brydens crushed Eastern Stars 38-16, with Claudette Johnson leading with an almost flawless 29 goals from 30 shots and Margaret Spooner adding nine from 18 attempts. In response, Nicole Burrowes made nine of 20 and Tanya Watts seven from 15.
In the only match played in the Ulric Sealy Zone, Brydens edged Rapid Response 17-15.
Donna Williams made ten of 18 and Tracy Payne scored seven from 11 attempts for Brydens, while Shakira Thompson netted eight of 16, Suzette Harding six of 12 and Natasha Williams one of two for Rapid Response.
Shottas United pipped Victorious Ballers 15-14 in the Gabby Scott Zone, with Shanice Hutson (8/15) and Shaquilla Babb (7/15) scoring for Shottas. Taka Corbin had seven of 24 and Allison Corbin seven from 17 for Ballers.
Smith Academy of Sports destroyed Messiah Spirit Warriors 25-4 with Kellisa Kelly 13 of 25, Donnia Husbands 11 of 20 and Rowland Kirton-Brown one from eight for Academy. Shariah Roberts made three of four and Undine Brewster one from five for the Warriors.
