St Giles Primary played two games unbeaten today in the Kathy Harper-Hall/Agnes Crichlow Zone of the Pine Hill Dairy-sponsored National Sports Council’s Primary Schools Netball competition.
They along with Belmont Primary won two games at the Netball Stadium where six matches were played.
It is still too early to pick which four teams will make it to the playoffs from that particular zone but former netball queens St Giles stamped their authority with a 10-2 win over George Lamming Primary who trailed 7-0 at half time.
Goal-attack Serena Edwards and goal-shooter Shemarla Wickham complimented each other well and they both netted five goals each from a combined 18 attempts. George Lamming goal-attack Tionce Waldron scored both goals for her school but did not receive much support.
Deacons Primary also got a taste of defeat at the hands of St Giles Primary who led 6-1 at half time and eventually took the win 7-1. Credit must be given to Deacons who defended a lot better in the second half even though they were called for faulty footwork on a number of occasions.
Edwards in her role as goal-attack scored four from five and goal-shoot Wickham three of five. Nyrobi Alleyne at goal-attack for Deacons was spot on scoring two of two.
Belmont edged Deacons 2-1 in a low-scoring game. Goal-shooter Rihanna Wyre and Tia Spellen had one goal each while Deacons goal-attack Riya Grazette had the one goal for her school.
Hindsbury Primary became Belmont’s second victim when they lost 4-3. Goal-attack Spellen netted all four for Belmont. Hindsbury’s goal-shooter Mai Lynn Griffith scored three goals from six attempts.
St Winifred’s gave Lawrence T Gay Primary a good run but in the end the Government school held on for a 3-2 win. Tianna Harris in her post as goal-attack netted two and goal-shoot Geneva Alleyne one. Scoring for St Winifred’s were goal-attack Emma Hodgkinson and goal-shooter Charlotte Howard with one goal each from a combined four attempts.
