Stars shine against Wolverines
Brittons Hill Combined Stars predictably captured the Roy Trotman Zone of the Barbados Workers’ Union’s Netball League on Monday night with an impressive victory over Wolverines 43-32.
That win saw The Stars finishing the season unbeaten, with Wolverines ending third behind Shottas United. It was always going to be an uphill task to stop the Stars since only an improbable massive defeat at the hands of the Wolverines would have caused a three-way tie, with Shottas having the outside chance of pipping the Stars.
However, in spite of a slow start by national captain Latonia Blackman and her sister, Nadia, the Stars surged from 3-6, 16-18 and 26-all to end the game on a canter.
Latonia’s tremendous form continued as she outscored Wolverines, hitting 34 goals from 42 attempts. Nadia added nine from 16.
