All Stars stay flawless

All Stars A remain the team to beat in netball.

The reigning national champions are now 6-0 atop the Championship Division of the Cayman Islands Netball Association 2013 Open League. The squad’s latest victory was a 49-10 thrashing of Unity last Thursday at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex netball courts.

Tashena Parks suited up at Goal Shooter for All Stars, with Pauline Bodden at Goal Attack, Kayon Clarke at Wing Attack and Katherine Maw at Centre. The ladies helped All Stars enjoy scores of 17-0, 11-3, 9-3 and 12-4 in the game’s four quarters. Unity boasts talents like GS Chelsea Alvaranga, C Latoya Anderson and attacking player Sheree McKenzie.

With the win, All Stars increased their lead in the standings over 4-2 Storm Radarz, 3-2 Rising Stars A, 1-5 Flames Strikers and 0-5 Unity. The Radarz are coming off a 44-26 win over Flames last Thursday.

The usual suspects dominated the proceedings for both sides with Storm boasting GS Sophia Foster, GA Lavern Ebanks and C Joanne Ziegler. Meanwhile, the Flames featured GS Marsha Campbell, GA Latoya Nixon and C Carla “Squiddy” McGarvey.

In the Plate Division, 5-1 Cayman National Bank All Stars B continue to have a slim lead over 4-1-0 Supa Storm, 2-1-2 Rising Stars B, 1-5 Jets and 1-5 Royal Cayman Islands Police Service Renegades. Storm, behind GA Olivia Samuels, are coming off a 32-15 win over Kay Ludeke’s Jets last Saturday.

Optimists and Ernst and Young Hot Shots top Division Three at 3-1-1 apiece, ahead of 2-3 Storm Chaserz and 1-4 Island Heritage. Nekita Saintvil’s Optimists are looking to rebound from a humbling 21-13 loss to Dominique Mowbray and Island Heritage last Saturday. Gemma Butterfield and the Hot Shots are on a high after last Thursday’s 24-11 win over Leandra Ramoon’s Chaserz.

League matches resume on 6 April after the Easter break.
