A strong shooting performance by Cheryse Aguileira moved Police into third position in the standings after one match in the Alternative Division of the All Sectors Netball League on Thursday at the Eastern Regional Indoor facility in Tacarigua.
Goal shoot Aguileira sank 17 of 22 attempts as police defeated fourth placed Prisons 32-21 to claim sole possession third spot on the standings.
The two service teams had been level on four points before Thursday’s encounter. But Aguileira’s shooting and goal attack Gabriella Bridgewater’s 11 goals from 25 attempts eventually saw the policewomen pull away from their Prisons counterparts.
Prisons had held the early advantage, leading 8-5 and 15-10 over the first two quarters before Police gained a four-goal lead in the third period, which they eventually extended to nine by the end of the match.
For Prisons, goal attack La Vaughn O’Neil took the attack to police, hitting 16 of 26 attempts.
At the end of the first round therefore, TSTT lead the standings with 10 points, two ahead of University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT).
In the one Championship Division game scheduled on Thursday, a power outage forced the abandonment of the contest between Jabloteh and Police X. That match will be rescheduled.
