LIME/CANA NETBALL: Volcanoes, Upsetters, Pitons, Lead Respective Divisions


CaribPR Wire, BROOKLYN, NY. Monday, July 26, 2010 — It is becoming a little bit clearer which clubs are playing the better ball as the 13th season of the LIME endorsed Caribbean American Netball Association tournament heads into the home stretch.

Unfazed by the rain which forced the postponement of four matches on Sunday afternoon, Volcanoes4 (Juniors), Pitons3 (Intermediate), Upsetters2 (Seniors2) and Volcanoes2 (Seniors), scored impressive victories to move to the top of their division.

With four rounds to go, Volcanoes4 look set to take top honors among the juniors, cruising to their fourth straight win (4-0), by an easy 28-12 margin over SunSplash3.

In the senior division, Volcanoes2 is making a run for top honors, picking up two big wins on the weekend. They clobbered Pitons1, 40-24 on Saturday evening and returned on Sunday for another laugher, a 49-31 outcome. In the Saturday evening feature, the result was never in doubt with the veteran pair of Yvonne Vernon (WD) and Anciel Langaigne (GS), outplaying the opposing pair of Tisha Pike (GD) and Nikita McSween (GK).

In the A2 section where 11 teams are contending and where the competition is fever pitch, Upsetters2 has a slim one game lead over Pitons2.  Upsetters2 were twice as good as Senators1 on Sunday, winning 33-17, in pretty much the same way that Pitons2 had their way with SunSplash1, 31-17, on Saturday.

Pitons3 are ahead by  a mere point (21) in the Intermediate section after their narrow 33-30 win over United2. Unbeaten Senators2 which did not have a game last weekend, remain on 20 points.

In one other game of note on Saturday, Crusaders were 44-32 winners over United1 to remain in striking distance on 26 points, 10 points (2 games) out of first place.

Key match ups this weekend at the Lincoln Terrace Park, Brooklyn, include, Crusaders3 against Senators2 on Saturday at 5:30 pm, and on Sunday at 6:00 pm, Upsetters2 (7-1) taking on Crusaders2 (5-1) for  leadership of the A2 division..
