Blackbirds overcome Rangers


Share post:

UWI BLACKBIRDS kept on flight for double crown honours while defending champions C.O. Williams Rangers suffered a second successive loss when the Barbados Netball Association’s league season continued on Friday night at the Netball Stadium.

Led by Barbados goal shooter Shonica Wharton’s match high 30 goals from 36 attempts, UWI beat the Rangers 34-31 in a very dull encounter. Last year, Rangers had recovered from a first round loss to the Blackbirds to capture the league title.

However, unimpressive midcourt play and struggling support for goal attack Nikita Payne doomed the Rangers and could deny them hopes of recovery. Payne scored 23 of 30 attempts while starter Shaquilla Davis made five of ten before being replaced by Shakeena Rock (three of five).
