Foundation, Springer share netball honours


Share post:

CHRIST CHURCH Foundation School and Springer Memorial enjoyed mixed fortunes when the Barbados Secondary Schools’ Junior Netball League continued on Tuesday.

With both schools being unbeaten in the Under-13 and Under-15 age groups, Springer kept their status intact in the opening Under-13 encounter at Government Hill by beating Foundation 13-8 after leading 6-4 in the first half.

Foundation stormed back to take biting revenge in the Under-15 battle by crushing the hosts 31-5 after leads of 6-2, 14-3 and 22-4.

After a poor start, Desanni Waithe found her range, scoring 19 goals from 32 shots. Shani Small, who replaced an out of sorts Serena Edwards (1/5) contributed 11 from 20 shots.

Edwards moved to goal defence to terrorise Springer with her speed and elevation. She executed multiple steals while limiting Springer to just 18 shots in the four quarters. Janae Atkins also played a mean defence for CCFS with Springer’s Under-13 shooters, Kennia Blackman and Makayla Lynch being put out of their depths with the big girls.

Springer are now 4/0 in the Under-13 section and 3/1 in the Under-15 competition while Foundation are 4/1 and 3/0 respectively.

On Tuesday, the dominant Lodge School sustained their unbeaten streak, edging the visiting Alleyne School’s Under- 13s 9-7 but destroying the Under-15s, 41-3.

Harrison College also demolished their Under-15 visitors, Deighton Griffith 35-2 after pipping the Under-13s, 10-7. The St. Michael School’s Under-13s stopped Combermere 13-8 and completed the sweep at their Martindale’s Road courts with a 26-20 win over the Under-5s.

The Ellerslie School hosted and defeated St. George Secondary’s Under-15s 15-8 while Parkinson Memorial edged the Under-13s from St. George 8-6.
