Christina Yearwood and Makela Walcott are proving to be a lethal duo in the WIBISCO-sponsored National Sports Counci’s Girls Basketball Tournament.
Yesterday at Trents, St. James, the Combermere pair dismantled Frederick Smith’s defence to run away with a 53-14 victory.
First they held their hosts to a miserable three first-half points and then had their way with the St. James school as Yearwood stood tall with 24 points, Walcott netted 16 and Tatyanna Waldron chipped in with 11.
The victory was Combermere’s second straight win, after opening the tournament with a loss to Springer Memorial.
At Husband’s, St. James, Queen’s College and Lester Vaughan engaged in a thriller that ended in a 35-32 overtime win for the hosts after scores were locked at regulation time at 32 each.
It was a heartbreaking loss for Lester Vaughan who held their own during regulation but went completely cold in overtime when they failed to score a single point. Queen’s College led 12-10 at half-time of the regulation period.
Ashlee Daniel and Nokiah Joseph scored 14 and 10 points respectively for the winners, while Tamara Trotman netted 12 points for the visitors.†
