Ashton leads Grantley Prescod to big win

Vauxhall Primary and Grantley Prescod Memorial Primary remain the only two unbeaten teams in the Carolyn Sinckler and Marion Johnson-Hurley zone of the ongoing National Sports Council’s Pine Hill Dairy Schools Netball Competition.

Against their respective opponents, Vauxhall Hall, last year’s losing finalist, and Grantley Prescod, continued to look the part while competing Wednesday at the Police Boys and Girls Sports Club on Bay Street, St Michael. 

Grantley Prescod Primary goal-attack Azariah Ashton (left) has been wonderful for her team throughout the tournament so far and Wednesday it was more of the same against George Lamming.

Grantley Prescod produced one of the highest scoring victories of the competition with a 17-0 result against George Lamming Primary. Goal-attack Azariah Ashton netted ten goals from 16 attempts and goal-shooter Kimberley Phillips scored seven of her ten attempts.

Vauxhall edged Wilkie Cumberbatch Primary 4-2 with goal-shooter Makayla Lynch being responsible for all four goals. Kennia Blackman, the daughter of Latonia Blackman who created history in Jamaica a few days ago by becoming just the second player aside from Don Small to have ever played all seven positions on court for Barbados, scored both goals for Wilkie Cumberbatch.

St Ambrose Primary goal-defence Tahara Joseph with a good take while being placed under pressure against George Lamming Primary.

St Ambrose Primary featured in two games. They defeated George Lamming Primary 3-0 with goal-shooter Tianna Cave scoring two and goal-attack Stevecia Hyde netting one. The going against St Gabriel’s School was not so easy but St Ambrose still managed to get a 3-2 result. Cave with two and Hyde, one, accounted for the three goals while for St Gabriel’s, goal-shooter Megan Cyrus shot both goals.

St Lawrence Primary goalkeeper Jahzara Clarke does well to keep the ball away from Hill Top Preparatory Primary’s shooters.

St Gabriel’s did not leave empty-handed as goal-shooter Cyrus ensured her team had their moment of joy when she secured three goals from five attempts as they got the better of St Lawrence Primary 3-0. St Lawrence continues to struggle as they fell 5-0 to Hill Top Preparatory Primary thanks to Jamila Greenidge who netted all five goals.

Bay Primary goal-shooter Kevianna Holder (with ball) shone inside the semicircle with catches like this and followed up with excellent shooting.

Bay Primary played well as goal-shooter Kevianna Holder put seven past St Paul’s Primary who only managed one through goal-shooter Kaelin Dixon.
