Cayman National Bank All Stars B are eager to start another winning streak.
After its three-game surge to start the Plate division of the Cayman Islands Netball Association 2013 Open League, All Stars will now seek to make it two straight triumphs on Saturday, 23 March.
Division leaders All Stars, 4-1, battle the 1-4 Royal Cayman Islands Police Service Renegades at 6.45pm at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex netball courts. All Stars are coming off a 39-24 victory over 2-1-2 Rising Stars B last Saturday.
All Stars are guided on offence by Karen Smith-James, who has a division-best 99 goals, Under-21 national team player Terry-Ann Hunter (46 goals) and veteran Whonda Fuad (10 goals). Renegades, who are in last place, sport Denise Anderson (34 goals) and Molly-Ann Moore (seven goals).
All Stars will be keen to stay ahead of 3-1-0 Supa Storm, who beat them at Camana Bay’s Arts and Recreation Centre this month. Supa Storm, who are in second place ahead of Rising Stars, also play on Saturday, taking on the 1-4 Jets at 8pm.
Storm feature a balanced attack behind Kristie Hurlston (90 goals) and Olivia Samuels (68 goals). Jets have a trio of promising prospects in Kay Ludeke (41 goals), Charlotte Shepheard (36 goals) and Mylene Menard (four goals).
Saturday also sees division three in action with 0-4 Island Heritage battling 3-1-0 Optimists at 6.45pm. Island Heritage, last in the standings, are coming off a 30-12 defeat last Saturday to 2-2 Storm Chaserz, who sit in third place. Megan Anderson (23 goals) steadies the Island Heritage attack alongside Tenesha Ebanks (five goals) and Josefa Martinez (three goals).
Optimists are coming off a 30-28 victory over second-ranked Ernst and Young Hot Shots, 2-1-1, last Thursday. The group leaders have depended on the sharp shooting of Milaney Dunn Garwood (31 goals).
