CHAMPIONS Pine Hill St Barnabas will defend their Little League Gym netball knockout crown on Saturday night at the Netball Stadium against the UWI Blackbirds at 8.

St Barnabas easily advanced to the final with a 57-20 whipping of Newbury All Stars tonight, with Barbados defender Shonette Bruce roughing up Newbury’s shooting duo of Shakeilia Smith and Khadija Domingo, both of whom attend Springer Memorial.

Ironically Newbury had looked like a challenge after edging to a score of 11-12 in the second quarter before St Barnabas blew open the game, rushing to 25 goals before the All Stars earned their 12th goal. 

St Barnabas dictated the pace 10-6, 22-11 and 39-16 with Sheniqua Thomas leading all scorers with 28 from 36 attempts at goal attack. Goals shooters Shakira Boxill scored 15 from 27 and Carla Boyce 14 from 21.

Domingo sank 12 from 18 for All Stars, with Smith scoring a sub-par eight from 19.

It will be a full evening of finals, starting with the Junior Knockout at 5 p.m. (KB)
