Bermuda Go Down by 1 in their Final Game

Bermuda's final game of the 16th Jean Pierre Tournament in Barbados saw them go up against Dominica going down by one point in a closely contested match.

Bermuda Starting lineup: Goal Shooter - Donnauri Robinson, Goal Attack - Zekiah Lewis, Wing Attack - Micah Pond, Center - Selah Tuzo, Wing Defense - Debre Evans, Goal Defense - Demiqua Daniels, Goal Keeper - Inshan-nae Smith, Subs Not Used: Zariah Amory, Ryann Hollis, Kaamilah Nasir, Nabillah Nasir, Mi'Kerah Moore

Going into the game Bermuda's spirits were high, having a good start from the first whistle was important and Bermuda managed to protect all their possessions and capitalize on their interceptions ending this quarter leading 6-3.

In the second quarter Bermuda continued to apply pressure and saw successfully possession with them continuing to add to their tally with the score ending 11-10. This score should have reflected 12-10 but the score keeper consulted with the umpires resulting in the 12th goal being taken away from Bermuda.

Bermuda addressed the score keepers and was told to step away from the table.

The 3rd quarter continued to be Bermuda's best quarter with them gobbling up several interceptions taking their lead to 17-12.

Going into the fourth quarter with a 5 goal lead it looked as if Bermuda was on their way to a fourth victory when the tides changed. Several decisions by the umpires combined with carless possession and turnovers Dominica gained a one point lead. In the dying seconds of play Bermuda thought they had scored the equalizer only to be adjudged no goal as the umpired said the shooters feet where not both inside the shooting circle.

Bermuda launched an official protest but the committee couldn't see any evidence to overturn the end result and awarded the game to Dominica 21 - 20.

Despite this heartbreaking loss Bermuda has made a good account for themselves finishing T4th in the tournament with three wins and four losses, but 6th on goal difference.

Bermuda also got 15 goals from Donnauri Robinson, with Zekiah Lewis adding 5 goals.

Bermuda's MVP for the tournament was Demiqua Daniels, with Selah Tuzo being awarded the Youngest Player in the Tournament and President Award for outstanding performances outside of netball.
