Dottin takes Reynold Weekes to win

The Marva Sealy/Inez Taylor Zone was added today to the list of those where primary school netballers have failed to reach double figures. But a win is still a win and Reynold Weekes Primary did just that with a 6-2 victory over St Margaret’s Primary.

Eight matches were scheduled to be played but only two were contested at King George V Memorial Park this morning in the ongoing 2016 Pine Hill Dairy-sponsored National Sports Council’s Primary Schools Netball Tournament.

Barbados TODAY understands two of those eight games scheduled for today had already been played, while a few schools in that zone have opted to drop out of the competition.

First up on court was St Margaret’s who were down 4-2 to Reynold Weekes at half time and the girls in green and white never looked back.

Reynold Weekes’ goal-shooter Wangari Dottin had a perfect score of three from three attempts while goal-attack Leann Beckles three of eight. St Margaret’s Primary’s main problem was catching the ball and that proved costly. Goal-shooter Janira Payne and goal-attack Gemia Mayers had one goal each from a total of six attempts for St Margaret’s.

The second game featured St John’s Primary who made history this year by fielding a team for the first time in the competition. They played against St Mark’s Primary who are no strangers to the competition and the game ended in a 2-2 draw. Credit must be given to St John’s who led 2-0 at half time but unfortunately allowed their momentum to slip in the second quarter due to a lack of court awareness and being called on many occasion for their faulty foot work.
