Teachers clinch netball title

Teachers have clinched Bermuda Netball Association’s (BNA) Summer League with a game to spare.

The newly-crowned champions were due to play nearest rivals Breakers in their final league match of the season today at Bernard Park.

However, both teams decided against playing as mathematically Teachers have already sewn up the title.

Teachers (34) finished the campaign four points ahead of Breakers (30) with Police (27) securing third place.

The remaining teams also agreed not to play their final matches because of player shortages brought on by vacations and the upcoming Island Games that will see BNA members involved in competition and volunteer their services.

The BNA have confirmed that next Monday’s season-ending single elimination Knockout tournament has been cancelled for the same reasons.

Meanwhile, Tuesday saw Colossal, Breakers and PHC came away victorious in the three matches that were played at Bernard Park.

Led by Jamine Smith’s 11 points, Colossal edged Police 26-23 in a close encounter. Stacey O’Brien replied with a game high 12 points in a losing cause for Police.

Breakers had things all their own way in a lopsided 39-6 rout of last-placed HSBC. Kirstin Saltus scored 20 points and Darrika Simons 19 for the winners.

PHC were also on cruise control in a comfortable 20-9 win over BMA.

The remaining contest saw non-league team Robin Hood win by default over Family.

Hood, last season’s Senior Winter League B Division champions, used the Summer League as practice.
