Foundation, QC final battle
LAST YEAR’S losing finalists Queen’s College and Christ Church Foundation will now battle for the Barbados Secondary Schools’ Under-13 netball title after commanding victories in yesterday’s semi-finals at the Netball Stadium.
QC crushed Coleridge & Parry 19-3 while Foundation were just as mean in beating The Lodge School 13-6 to set up a showdown in next Tuesday’s final.
Reana Gilkes netted a perfect 12 goals from 12 attempts while Dominique Blenman’s 3/8 and Liana Leacock’s 4/9 supported admirably.
The Husbands, St James girls also dominated in the defensive circle where the imposing Rhashan Hunte and Zakila Coppin limited CP’s shooters with their height and court awareness to just ten shots while snapping up any misses.
Serena Edwards sank 12/17 and Larissa Edwards added 1/3 for Foundation while Lodge used three shooters – Mari Greenidge scoring 3/5, Sumara Benn 2/3 and Desalene Callender 1/5 – in a futile attempt to match their opponents. (KB)
