General Accident confident
General Accident will enter today's game oozing confidence after defeating Scotiabank twice this season. However, Diana Polack, manager of Scotiabank, said her players are anxious about today's game but ready to give it their best shot.
"I am very nervous because they have beaten us twice this season. But we have been training very hard this week to correct those mistakes that we made against them in those two previous games," said Polack.
"We are hoping to win the game, but we will have to improve on our shooting because our shooters were off in those two games that we played against them," Polack said. "I think that we will rise to the challenge come tomorrow and take home the victory."
The Winston Nevers-coached Scotia will rest their hopes in the hands of national representatives Nicole Aiken-Pinnock and Patricia McCalla, along with Naudia Brown and Tennisha Bernard.
General Accident have been dominating the competition this season by winning all the games in the tournament.
"The girls are prepared and are waiting to play Scotia because, normally when we play Scotia, it's usually an evenly contested game," said Cheryll Henry, manager of General Accident.
"It is going to be a difficult game because they have a good team and, to me, it will be a battle of wills and who will come out on top," she said.
Henry added: "We have beaten them twice before, but anything can happen on game day because both teams are experienced."
General Accident's contingent will be led by player/coach Oberon Pitterson-Nattie, while national players Nadine Bryan, Sabrina Spence and former national shooter, Margaret Byfield, should provide strong support.
