attempts and Deanna Ramsay who had five goals from six attempts. For St. Martin’s Mangrove Brianna Harvey scored six goals from eight attempts, Britney Herbert had two goals from seven attempts and Ashne Marshall scored both of her attempts.
The second semi-final match-up was also a close affair with the sizzling shooting of goal attack Akila Rouse being instrumental in Boscobelle’s 9-7 victory over Belmont Primary.
