Netballers make winning start

Bermuda enjoyed a strong start in the Jean Pierre Caribbean Youth Netball Tournament, overcoming Grenada, in a hard-fought 24-23 victory.

In an even opening to the encounter, both teams traded goals and were level at 5-5 during the first quarter, before Bermuda seized the advantage going into half-time with a 12-11 lead.

Bermuda made two changes heading into the third quarter with Coriah Simmons taking up the centre position while Jade Johnston came in at wing attack.

It proved a shrewd move, as with a slight injury to the impressive opposition centre, and Bermuda goa lkeeper Elishae Smith denying the Grenada attack many shooting opportunities, the islanders managed to take full advantage, extending their advantage to lead 19-14.

Bermuda’s goal came under siege in the final quarter. However, despite conceding a number of goals, their never-say-die attitude allowed them to hold firm and clinch victory. The final whistle was met with an eruption of jubilation from the Bermuda bench and supporters.

Asrael Basden showcased her shooting prowess to finish the match with 18 goals, with the remaining six being added by Selah Tuzo. There was also telling contributions from Alexcie Burrows, K’Xiyae Gibbons and G’zai Dyer.
