One spot is left to be determined after Boscobel Primary became the third school to make the semi-finals of the Pine Hill Dairy-sponsored National Sports Council’s Primary Schools Netball Tournament at the Netball Stadium today.

It was not a stroll in the park for the St. Peter school, though, as they encountered stiff competition in both their match-ups today.

Playing against a very keen Hilda Skeene team, Boscobel were stretched to the limit before emerging 9-8 winners. Akila Rouse scored eight goals from 14 attempts while Kayla Hurley scored her only attempt. Hilda Skeene’s Aaliyah Small had the best shooting percentage for the morning of those making more than five attempts and with better service from her team-mates might have snatched victory for the St. Philip school. She netted seven of her nine attempts while Ranisha Greaves scored one goal from her two tries.

Boscobel met further resistance when they came up against Grantley Prescod but prevailed 5-3. Rouse again had the hot hands for Boscobel scoring their five goals from nine attempts. Destiny Glasgow scored both her attempts and Deansha Goddard scored the third goal from two attempts.

St. Giles were also in winning form defeating both Grantley Prescod and Hillaby Turners Hall. Against Grantley Prescod Kristal Sealy and Tammesha Clarke both scored four goals from seven and five attempts respectively as their team won 8-5. Goddard scored those five goals from eight attempts.

In the 8-2 win against Hillaby Turners Hall, Clarke was a perfect six goals from as many attempts, while Sealy chipped in with two more from four attempts. Alisha Hunte netted her school’s two goals from two attempts.

In another closely-fought game Hilda Skeene defeated Hillaby Turners Hall 5-3 with Small continuing her hot shooting streak with five goals from seven attempts. For Hillaby Turners Hall Hunte had two goals from four attempts while Adanna Watson scored the third goal from two attempts.

The last semi-final place will be determined tomorrow while the semi-final match-ups are on June 20.
