Combermere bounced back from defeat at the hands of Springer Memorial last week with a comfortable 48-22 victory over Lester Vaughan at their Waterford, St. Michael court, as action in the WIBISCO-sponsored National Sports Council Girls’ Basketball Tournament continued yesterday.
Makela Walcott, with 24 points, led Combermere’s offensive efforts while getting solid assistance from Christina Yearwood who chipped in with 16 points.
Combermere led 32-8 at half-time.
Springer Memorial made it two wins in two games with a crushing 73-5 win over Alexandra that was embarrassingly one-sided.
The Government Hill girls had a feast with Winmalecia Bowen (14 points), Domnique Browne (14), Victoria Marshall (10), Tricia Phillips (10), and Zakiya Kirton (11) each taking turns in inflicting agony on their hosts at the St. Peter school.
At Crumpton Street, Shannon Greene with 26 points and the multi-talented Hayley Matthews with 22, led Harrison College to a 64-12 victory over Daryll Jordan Secondary. Harrison College led 37-6 at half-time in a match-up where the visitors spent most of the game collecting the ball from inside their own basket.
