Benicia Mullings has her netball club in position for fresh kudos.
Mullings, 23, has her All Stars B side, sponsored by Cayman National Bank, at 4-3. A victory can lead to a fourth place spot and a shot at the national title in the Cayman Islands Netball Association 2012 open league.
The George Town native states she has confidence in her squad.
“As long as we keep the unity there and apply all we do in practice, we can take the trophy home,” Mullings said. “I’m very confident about the rest of the season. We lost some games and threw some away but we’ve never been badly beaten.”
The knockout/playoff stage of the competition features the top four sides battling for the national championship while the bottom four clubs compete for the consolation trophy.
All Stars are in action this Thursday, 19 April, against the Ernst and Young Hot Shots at 6.30pm. The match takes place at the Truman Sports Complex netball courts. All Stars are currently fifth, behind the 5-4 Flames Strikers, 7-2 Rising Stars A, 7-1 All Stars A and 7-1 Roma A. Ernst and Young are ninth at 0-4.
After facing the Hot Shots, All Stars play their regular season finale next Thursday, 26, April against their A counterparts (sponsored by Central Cooling). Mullings will need team-mates like Charlotte Sheperd and Tishelle Logan to step up and outplay the likes of Pauline Bodden and Stacy Reid-Satahoo.
Mullings admits the A squad can be a stumbling block.
“Our only challenge is our A team. I would have no problem losing to them. The other A teams don’t faze me for this season.”
