BNA Senior League Make Up Matches

There were Bermuda Netball Association’s Senior League make up games at the Bernard Park with 140 points scored in total and another upset.

Storm Lightning found it difficult, in the first two quarters, to pull away from 6th place Robin Hood. However Storm Lightning soon found their rhythm with the likes of their Under 16 player Amaiah Butterfield scoring 29 of their goals as they defeated Robin Hood 41 – 32. Also scoring for the Storm Lightning was MVP Jaylynn Hines who added 11 goals and Shivaughn Lee adding one, Robin Hood would get 14 goals from MVP Charlie Bridgman and 13 goals from Jess Arneil.

The second game proved to be the game of the night, with the Phoenix Heat suffering their second loss of the second this time at the hands of the young up and coming Storm Thunder, 35 - 32.

It was clearly a see saw battle with both teams giving it all they had, the Storm Thunder shooting duo of Nabiilah Nasir and Selah Tuzo had the Phoenix Heat defense on their toes, with their speed proving to be an asset.

Their safe hands caught balls that seemed almost impossible to catch, while they sank their shots having to shoot up and over their beautiful stretch of their taller opponents.

Kehzari Knights, Phoenix Heat shooter would not be denied the satisfaction of shooting goal for goal using her height, and holding skills, while veteran player Arkeita Fubler dominated in the attack with precise passes.

Not to be out done the defensive unit of Debre Evans and mother daughter duo Nina Webb and Asante Chapman cleaned up and intercepted numerous passes using their agility and jumping ability to incept balls that the Phoenix Heat was sure belonged to Knights.

However had it not been for the defensive combination of Kiante Lightbourne and Chelsea Somner's never say die attitude that always seemed to keep victory in sight, getting their hands to balls that seemed almost impossible to get. Which helped keep the score close.

In the end victory would go to Storm Thunder as in the dying minutes even Mother Nature seemed to blow in what would be one of the biggest upsets this season.

MVP Nasir led the Storm Thunder with 22 goals, while Tuzo added 13 goals, the Phoenix Heat got 20 goals from Knights and 12 goals from Fubler, with Kiante Lightbourne named the teams MVP.
