Come Friday December 03, 2021, a new team will hold aloft the championship trophy when the 2021 St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College Invitational Netball competition culminates at the Villa Campus court. 

Low scoring and exciting, packed with drama, are just some of the superlatives to describe last Wednesday’s semifinal one clash between Bethel Young Lasses and BSS Warriors that ended 17-14 in favor of the young ladies from the Bethel High School. 

Bethel Young Lasses drew first blood and had a slim one goal lead after the first quarter; 6-5. Kayla Miller then took over the show and was almost perfect in the circle for BSS Warriors which took them to 11-8 and 13-11 second and third quarter leads, respectively. 

 Bethel Young Lasses were not done just yet, as the defensive duo of Samayaa Connell and Ketonna Campbell broke the axle of the Warriors, restricting them to only one fourth quarter conversion, while at the other end, Jenicia Jackson weaved her magic from centre court, enabling five unanswered goals for Bethel that took them to victory, and a date on Friday’s finals. 

In the afternoon second semifinal matchup between defending champions Teachers Combined and Troumaca Mustangs, the Mustangs had the better of the Teachers 26-22 at the end of the encounter. 

After an epic end to the previous match of the day, the first three-quarters of semifinal two were very sedate and saw a few good number of lead changes, as mistakes from both sides allowed the other to regain lost ground. 

The Mustangs took the first quarter 7-6. Teachers forged forward in the second period to lead 13-11 at its end. Mustang came back to nose ahead 19-18 after the third, before surging strongly with the tape in sight in to win 26-22, and a date with BSS Young Lasses and a chance to lay hands on the 2021 St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College Invitational Netball championship trophy.
