Tivoli too strong for Jetsetters
published: Wednesday | May 16, 2007

Robert Bailey, Freelance Writer

TIVOLI are now the sole leaders of the Jamaica Netball Association (JNA)/Berger Paints Super League following a 67-22 thrashing of bottom-placed Jetsetters A at the Leila Robinson Courts on Sunday.

Tivoli, lead the standings with 21 points, two more than defending champions Jamalco who are tied for second with Waulgrovians A.

However, Jamalco still have a game in hand. Windalco, Tivoli B and Arnett Gardens are all tied for fourth with 12 points.

Sylvester Campbell, coach of Tivoli A, said the game barely tested his side.

"The game wasn't much a challenge for my team," said Campbell. "We got off to a very good start and we were able to continue that throughout the rest of the game," he said.

Team will perform well

"I expect my team to do pretty well for the remainder of the season. We have a lot of fighting power in us ... but I really can't predict the outcome of this league, because any of the top three teams can win the competition," Campbell said.

Tivoli dominated their match against Jetsetters from the opening whistle and ended the first half with a 30-15 lead.

The west Kingston team continued its dominance in the third quarter by outscoring Jetsetters 20-5 to end the period with a 50-20 lead.

Tivoli, who are the reigning JNA Senior League champions, extended their lead in fourth period by outscoring Jetsetters 17-2, as they coasted to their eighth win of the season.

Grant in charge

Cleopatra Grant led the way for Tivoli with 45 goals from 58 attempts. Grant received good support from teammate Shadeiky Hamilton (19 goals from 24 attempts).

Sophia Grant (12 goals from 31) and Annette Miller (10 from 18) were the top scorers for Jetsetters, who suffered their eighth defeat of the season.

Meanwhile, Friendship, Omega B, Grants Pen Archers and Jetsetters C all booked their places in the semi-finals of the JNA/Supreme Ventures Division C league following quarter-final victories at the weekend. Friendship edged Progressive Strikers 23-21, Jetsetters C defeated Duhaney Strikers 15-12, Grants Pen stopped Ravens C 23-20 and Omega beat Police C 22-21.
