Cam­per­down, Gayn­stead in big ur­ban net­ball clash

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Ray­mond Gra­ham Gleaner Writer

WITH LATE af­ter­noon rains af­fect­ing the play­ing of most of the se­nior games in the sec­ond round of the ISSA Ur­ban School­girl Net­ball Com­pe­ti­tion, ac­tion will con­tinue to­day at the Leila Robinson Courts with five resched­uled games start­ing at 1:30 p.m.

Among the games to­day will be the top-of-the-ta­ble Group 2 en­counter be­tween de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Cam­per­down and Gayn­stead High in a clash of un­beaten teams.

While both teams have vir­tu­ally booked their spots in the semi-fi­nals, to­day’s en­counter will be very cru­cial as the win­ner will meet the sec­ond-placed team in Group 1.


Both have been very im­pres­sive so far this sea­son, get­ting by their op­po­nents with ease. Cam­per­down got the bet­ter of Tivoli 53-17 in their first game in the sec­ond round be­fore stop­ping St Catherine High 38-16 and for­mer cham­pion St Hugh’s 32-18.

Gayn­stead, who are hav­ing their best re­sults ever in the se­nior com­pe­ti­tion, eas­ily got the bet­ter of St Hugh’s 42-24 in their first game. It was the sane in their next two en­coun­ters as they put away Tar­rant 37-14 then stopped St Catherine High 50-34.

The other matches on to­day will see Ex­cel­sior meet­ing Nor­man Man­ley, The Queen’s School go­ing up against Wolmer’s, St Catherine fac­ing Tivoli Gar­dens, Pen­wood bat­tling Im­mac­u­late and St Hugh’s and Tar­rant squar­ing off.

One resched­uled ju­nior match will also be played to­day as de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Gayn­stead, who have al­ready topped Group 2 with four wins in a row, will meet Cam­per­down.
