Graydon Sealy get hard-earned win
Graydon Sealy got the better of Combermere, 55-46, when the WIBISCO-sponsored National Sports Council’s Secondary Schools Girls Basketball Tournament resumed today.
Playing at Combermere, Graydon Sealy’s Nikita President and Ashley Roach both scored 15 points and got good support from Shonica Wharton, 12, as they controlled both ends of the court to come away with a hard-earned victory.
The hosts’ Christina Yearwood continued her good form with a game-high 18 points, while Makela Walcott and Tatyanna Waldron both scored 10 points but the Waterford girls still came up short.
Graydon Sealy led 27-19 at the half-time break and never relinquished their dominance.
Perhaps distracted by the ongoing teachers’ saga surrounding their school, Alexandra’s girls played an entire half without scoring a single point before going down to Lester Vaughan 40-2 at Speightstown, St. Peter.
Tamara Trotman with 10 points and Lieann Connell-Forde, 12, did the damage for the visitors.
At Government Hill, Springer Memorial defeated Queen’s College 38-11, after leading 28-6 at the break.
Winmalicia Bowen, 12 points and Hannisha Hoyte, 10, had the hot hands for the winners. (WG)†
