Upsetters, Volcanoes In Close Race For LIME Netball Honors


CaribPR Wire, BROOKLYN, NY., Tuesday, July 6, 2010: The LIME (Cable & Wireless) sponsored Caribbean American Netball Association, (CANA), 2010 summer league continues at the Lincoln Terrace Park (East New York & Buffalo Avenues), Brooklyn, NY, on Saturday and Sunday, July 10th and 11th.

 The two day, weekend schedule of fifteen matches will see teams in the hunt for vital points and a chance to boost their division standings.  This coming weekend schedule covers rounds 7 and 8 of the regular season and will be an important marker, following last weekend’s one day break to facilitate the Sunday, July 4th Independence holiday.

 With six matches making up last Saturday’s round six schedule, former league, state and national champions Upsetters scored two impressive wins in the senior division to stay in touch with Volcanoes in the race for top honors.

 With the pivotal height advantage in their favor, Volcanoes’ second team used quick, accurate passing and shooting to separate themselves from Crusaders first team. A five points difference, (36-31), separated the teams at the end of a contest that was even too hot for the umpires to handle.

 Pitons2 were 35-29 winners over Typhoons1 and Volcanoes’ third team were 25-20 winners over Untouchables in another senior division match, but the fireworks were on court 2 where Upsetters had to pull out all the tricks in the playbook in grounding rivals Flying Targets, for a final 45-37 score.

 With both teams parading national talent, there were no easy goals or points. Upsetters held a one point lead, 10-9, at the quarter, a 3 points lead, 22-19, at the half and a six points margin, 32-26, after 3 quarters.

 In one other senior division match, Upsetters2 defeated United1 32-26. In the intermediate division, United2 won a face-saver 27-25 over Typhoon2 in a game marked by poor shooting under the basket.

 This is the 13th season for the CANA summer league and the first for LIME as sponsors. Tip off for Saturday’s schedule of matches is at 4 p.m.
