Mico University College repeated their performance of a year ago by winning the treble in intercollegiate netball after a 59-48 overtime win in the intermediate A final last Saturday over home team G.C. Foster B.

The intermediate champions blew away G.C. Foster by 24 goals in preliminary action two weeks ago, but it was a more determined G.C. Foster College team which played the final. Mico led 11-10, 21-17 and 30-28 after three quarters. However, G.C. Foster fought hard in the fourth quarter as, spurred on by their vocal home supporters, they rallied to even the score at 43-43 at the end of the quarter, sending the game into overtime.

In the two periods of overtime, it was all Mico as the Connie Francis and Janet Guy-coached team led 52-44 after the first stanza before pulling away for a comfortable 11-goal winning margin in the end.

Mico's two other titles came over the past two weeks. The senior team defeated UWI in the final last Thursday while the junior team had earlier beaten G.C. Foster in the intermediate B final.

Excelsior Community College finished third in the intermediate A competition after stopping UWI B 32-26 in the playoff for third and fourth.
