Bermuda Netball Association action returned to Bernard Park for the first time this season with league and tournament matches held on Saturday.

Proceedings kicked off with Storm sealing a 7-5 victory over Rangers in an Under-14 league match held over from the opening day at Bermuda College. The other remaining match not played on the first weekend, saw Phoenix Embers run out convincing 26-6 winners over NVCC.

The day belonged firmly to Storm, who were also crowned champions of both Under-17 Harold “Doc” Dowling Tournament and Senior Sylvia Eastley Tournament, both of which were also held over from the week previously.

The Under-17 team went unbeaten, overcoming Dandy Stars 6-3, NVCC White 6-4 and Phoenix Fire 4-1 to take the honours. They edged out NVCC Red, who also won all three matches beating Phoenix Fire, Dandy Stars and NVCC White.

The senior team prevailed in the round robin tournament, beating Docksiders 5-1, St George's’ 10-1 and Phoenix 11-5 before overcoming NVCC with a thrilling 7-6 victory in the final.

Meanwhile, the first Senior League weekday match of the season took place at Bermuda College on Monday evening with Phoenix Heat proving too strong for Tigers in a hard fought 56-41 victory.

Heat, who were boosted by the return of veteran goal attack Ebonie Cox, found themselves trailing 12-11 after the first quarter, before responding superbly to overturn the deficit and hold a point advantage at 23-22, going into half time.

Tigers made a number of substitutions after the interval, but they failed to have desired effect as Phoenix took control of the encounter to hold a 43-32 advantage after the third quarter.

Further substitutions were made by Tigers in an effort to try and get back into the match, but despite a valiant effort, Phoenix further pressed home their dominance to wrap up victory.

Danielle Raynor proved the pick of the Heat players, leading the scoring with 38 points, while Cox scored the remaining 18.

Jahtuere Trott (20 points), Diara Benjamin (13) and Candance Paynter (8) were all on target for Tigers in a losing cause.
