Jamalco, Jetsetters showdown
published: Tuesday | May 27, 2008

Robert Bailey, Freelance Writer


Nadine Bryan ... a key player for Jamalco.

Defending champions Jamalco and Jetsetters 'A' will meet in today's feature semi-final clash of the Jamaica Netball Association (JNA)/ Berger Paints Super League at the Leila Robinson starting at 6:00p.m.

Meanwhile, Open Rally champions Tivoli Gardens 'A' and former champions Waulgrovians 'A' will square off in the other semi-final starting at 7:30p.m.

Jamalco who have not lost a game in this season's competition, secured their spot in the semi-finals after demolishing Arnett Gardens 55-42 in a quarter-final encounter.

Seeking sixth hold

The Winston Nevers-coached Jamalco are also seeking their sixth consecutive hold on the winning trophy.

"We are very confident because we expect to win this game and move on to the finals," said Wayne Shaw, manager of Jamalco.

"The Jetsetters are a young and upcoming team but I think that they need a lot more improvement if they are going to beat us because I think we will win this match easily," Shaw added.

Shaw stated that the preparations have been going well and the players are ready and rearing to go.

"The players have been training very hard and they are a lot fitter now and physically and mentally ready for this match."

The Clarendon based-team will be looking to national representatives goal shooter Elaine Davis, centre Nadine Bryan and goalkeeper Nicole Aiken to pilot them to victory.

Jetsetters booked their place in the semi-finals by upsetting the highly fancied Windalco 55-54 in overtime.

Good netball

C. Lloyd Walker, coach of Jetsetters said: "We plan to play good netball because we are not bothered by the fact that they have a number of national players in their team.

"We know that they are a good scoring team and we are going to try and slow them down, and at the same time we will have to make sure we score our goals," said Walker.

Walker added that they have a very strong bench and he is hoping to use this to his advantage by rotating his players throughout the game.

"The ball is round and we are going out there to win the game and I think that the best team on the day will win the match," Walker said.
