CHRIST CHURCH Foundation will go head to head with Springer Memorial in the battle for the Barbados Secondary Schools Under-15 Netball Championship title at the Netball Stadium today from 3:30 p.m.

Foundation’s coach Sandrene Jordan told NATIONSPORT she was hoping for her team to reclaim their crown.

“I am expecting Foundation to regain their title. I will hope that the players are ready and willing to come out with guns firing to repeat; but we won’t take Springer Memorial for granted,” she said.

However, coach of the Springer Memorial team, Julie Phillips, simply said the team that wanted it more would emerge the winners.

“The team who sticks to their game plans will come out victorious,” said Phillips.

In the semi-finals on Tuesday, Springer Memorial and Christ Church Foundation crushed their opponents, The St Michael School and Coleridge & Parry 28-18 and 27-16, respectively.

Goal attack Rashanna Thorne spearheaded the victory for Springer after netting 17 of her 25 attempts. She was supported by goal shooter Shawnelle Trotman, who scored seven of nine and Jada Smith, with four of six.

By the end of the first quarter the score was 8-5 to St Michael, who were sharp on court delivering the ball to their lanky goal shooter Tower Lorde, who was certainly a pillar of strength for her team.

She scored an outstanding 16 of her 19 attempts and was supported by Asha Yearwood, who scored two of two, before Springer’s strong midcourt changed the direction of the game in their favour.

Foundation School started positively with six unanswered goals against Coleridge & Parry in the first quarter while there was a sluggish attempt by CP to close the deficit.

In the second quarter, CP scored a mere three goals while Foundation came out strongly with 11.

Goal attack Chiara Chase netted ten of her 15 attempts, while Ayanna Reid scored nine of 17 and Brianna Holder added eight from 14 attempts.

Coleridge & Parry’s Emisha Barrow scored nine of 14, Shondelle Harvey, five of six, and Skye Skeete, two of four. (RG)
