Gems finally end losing streak


Share post:

THE BAJAN GEMS outplayed Singapore 68-44 to score their first win in the Netball World Youth Cup in Gaborone, Botswana, yesterday.

The most precious stone in the Gems’ outlay, Shonica Wharton, returned from injury to score a record 63 goals from 64 attempts. That display doomed Singapore to a winless preliminary round in Group B.

Ending fourth in Group B will see the Gems playing Scotland this evening at six (midday Barbados time) for the ninth to 16th positions.

Australia topped the group, finishing with a 65-35 win over second-placed South Africa. Yesterday the Caribbean battle between Trinidad and Tobago and Grenada saw the former triumphing 76-35. (KB)
