SPRINGER MEMORIAL and Christ Church Foundation will do battle in the final of the Barbados Secondary Schools Netball League at the Netball Stadium tomorrow.

Springer Memorial had to fight tooth and nail to overcome Queen’s College 22-21, while Christ Church Foundation defeated Combermere 24-16 in two competitive semi-finals at the Netball Stadium yesterday.

Springer’s goal shooter Tyra Holder had an impressive performance, scoring 19 of her 27 attempts, while goal shooter Chiara Chase spearheaded Foundation’s victory, scoring 12 out of her 17 attempts, with support from goal attack Brianna Holder who converted nine out of 14 attempts.

Combermere’s goal attack Sheniqua Thomas scored 15 out of 20 attempts.

Foundation coach Sandrene Jordan said she was pleased with the performance of her team and was confident they will win the final.

“The girls were wonderful. The way Foundation is playing now, we will go all the way. All of my players are key players,” she said.

Springer dominated Queen’s College in the first two quarters but conceded two goals at the end of the third quarter. However, they held on to clinch victory.

Queen’s College’s goal shooter Niara Forde scored 12 out of 21 attempts and goal attack Britney Small scored 7 out of 9 attempts.

Springer Memorial coach Julie Phillips said her team did not play to the best of their ability, adding that a number of factors contributed to the hiccups they experienced on court.

However, she added that although her team made mistakes she believed the girls were keen on winning.

“We are going to work hard, we are going to go back to the drawing board and we are looking forward to the final. It’s going to be tough but the team that wants it most and makes the least mistakes will be the one to come out victorious.” (RG)
