Junior Gems make it three from three

Social Share

The Barbados Junior Gems are still unbeaten after the third round of the Jean Pierre Caribbean Youth Netball Tournament in Antigua and Barbuda.

Earlier this morning, the Gems crushed Bermuda 41-11 in the rescheduled fixture. It should have been the opening match for the two teams during last Friday’s opening session, but was rained out.

Barbados started the tournament with a 35-22 victory over arch-rivals Trinidad and Tobago on Saturday and crushed Dominica 33-12 on Sunday.

The Junior Gems will play the hosts at 7:15 tonight, and based on form, coach Cameron Greenidge should be pushing to raise the goal average in the early part of the game and also empty the bench to stay ahead of St Lucia. (SAT)
