Defending champions Guardian Group Pride of Villa scored an unbelievable 54-52 win over Signia Globe UWI Blackbirds on Wednesday night at the Netball Stadium to advance to the final of the Senior Netball Knockouts. 

Villa remarkably turned around a 16-goal third-quarter deficit to stun the Blackbirds while thrilling their large crowd of supporters, who never gave up hope.

UWI had led 14-9, 30-20 and 35-44, with Villa’s first lead occurring at 51-50. With a battery of national players in Shonica Wharton, Sheniqua Thomas, Rieah Holder and Barbados captain Damisha Croney, along with former Gem Shanice Wharton and invitees Jaleesal Brathwaite and young Akeena Stoute, the Blackbirds totally dominated the early quarters.
