Sweet win for Bajan Gems
SUGAR IS ALWAYS SWEETER than spice.
Defending Caribbean Under-16 netball queens Barbados gave early notice that they intend to retain their crown on home soil.
Playing before patriotic fans at the Netball Stadium last night, the young Barbados Gems rolled over Grenada 38-17 in the opening match of this year’s Caribbean Netball Association Jean Pierre Tournament.
The easy victory was a team effort but one of the key players was imposing 14-year-old goal shooter Tower Lorde, who used her height to her advantage against the shorter Grenadian defence players. (EZS)
