Last year's beaten senior finalist, Gaynstead High, got off to an impressive start in the ISSA Urban Schoolgirl Netball Competition last week when they scored a one-sided 74-2 win over Penwood High, playing at home in a Group F encounter.

With goal shooter Amanda Pinkney and Goal Attack Astia Brooks on fire, it was a dominant Gaynstead from start to finish as they led 20-1, and 35-2 after the first two quarters. For the remainder of the game, Gaynstead kept their opponents scoreless, while they scored 13 in the third quarter and 26 in the final period. Pinkney ended with 50 goals from 54 attempts, and Brooks 24 from 33.

Defending Junior champions, Gaynstead, did not get a chance to open their account as their opponent failed to field a team on the day.

Most of the action in other groups last Wednesday came among junior teams as many teams failed to field a senior team. Former champion, the Queen's School, and Camperdown had big wins. Playing at home in Group A, Queen's dismissed Charlie Smith 57-2, while Camperdown also dispatched Kingston Technical 49-3 in the group's other game.
