Last night at the Netball Stadium, UWI brushed aside last year’s champions Pine Hill St Barnabas 31-24  to claim the trophy.

UWI led the first quarter 12-6 and they continued their dominance throughout the game, holding 18-10 and 27-17 leads in the second and third quarters respectively. The university women’s success was an all-round team effort, led by their top goal-shooter Shonica Wharton who scored 22 of her 34 attempts. Goal-attack Rhea Holder netted nine from 14.

Pine Hill St Barnabas’ goal-attack Sheniqua Thomas (front) had a good game in a losing effort.

Sheniqua Thomas in her usual goal-attack role for St Barnabas netted 11 from 22, while there were also contributions from goal-shooters Carla Boyce with 7 from 11 attempts and Sherika Boxill 6 from 12. (ML)
