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.

VERY IMPRESSIVE

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.
