COMBINED CLUBS C.O. Williams Rangers and Guardian General Pride of Villa have challenged the worth of the Under-21 Gems in another practice match at the Netball Stadium.

Sealing a 51-37 point victory, the mixed team led four straight quarters to defeat the Bajan Gems, who are preparing for the AFNA World Youth Cup qualifiers in St Maarten later this month.

Combined Clubs’ triumph was powered by Nikita Payne who netted 25 of her 30 attempts and she was strongly supported by Laurel Browne, who scored 18 of 20 attempts.

Latonia and Nadia Blackman also contributed, scoring five of five and three of four, respectively.

The Bajan Gems scored an early goal, but Combined Clubs made a steal and followed up with four straight goals. (RG)
