UTT keeps Alternative champs TSTT winless
The trio of Sharon Phillip, Jameela Mc Carthy and Latisha Pitt combined to lead University of T&T (UTT) to a 35-16 spanking of defending Alternative Division champions Police when the 23rd season of the Courts All Sectors Netball League (ASNL) continued at the Eastern Regional Indoor Sports Arena, Orange Grove Road, Tacarigua, on Tuesday.
Goal attack Phillip scored 13 of 23 attempts while goal shooters Mc Carthy and Pitt added 12 from 18 and 10 from 26, respectively, to lead their team past the utility company women and a 3-0 record to start the season.
For TSTT, which was also beaten in its opener 34-17 by University of Southern Caribbean, Sophia Harper had a team high of nine goals from 21 attempts, Delicia Harris got six from seven and Alicia John one from four. UTT, which had wins over Police (36-28) and USC (38-34), took a 9-4 lead at the end of the first quarter after which it extended its advantage to 19-6 at the half, and 32-12 by the end of the third quarter before easing up in the final period.
Meanwhile, USC rebounded from its loss to UTT by holding off winless Police 31-30 thanks to Afiya Alexis’ 29 goals from 45 attempts and a valuable two from nine attempts by Gabrielle Gooding.
At the end of the first period, USC led 7-5 and increased its cushion to 16-9 at the half, but in the third period Police mounted a fightback and outscored its opponent 10-8 to trail 24-19 after three quarters.
The lawmen, who were inspired by goal shoot Giselle Norton-Richards’ 14 goals from 22 attempts and Giselle Navarro’s 12 from 17, maintained their momentum in the final quarter to dominate 11-7, but in end they came up just short of the mark and fell 30-31.
Goal attack Janelle Wilson chipped in with four goals from six attempts for Police, which fell to 0-2 after losing its opener as well. Tomorrow, the Championship and Premier Division will continue at Tacarigua from 1 pm.
