Three mouth watering matches are scheduled for today in the 4th round of the Berger Elite League at the Leila Robinson courts in Kingston starting at 6:30 pm.

 

 

 

The opening match will see Clarendon Gaters taking on the red hot Manchester Spurs who boast the top scorer in the competition in Shantal Slater with 84 baskets to date and a decent shooting average of 77%.  The Gaters will be looking to Claudia Callender (25) and Kadie-Ann Dehaney (33) and the rest of the team to keep the Spurs in check.

 

 

 

The second match will see the only unbeaten team – St. Catherine Racers clashing with Kingston Humming Birds who are on a two-match win streak.  The teams have five points and four points respectively with the Racers topping the points table.

 

 

 

The Racers won their first two matches while drawing the third with Clarendon Gaters to end on 32:32 each.  The Racers started that match with eight unanswered baskets but were pegged back by the Gaters who won the other three quarters.

 

 

 

The Racers will be looking to Sabrina Spence (44) and Anna-Kay Griffiths (58) for the bulk of the baskets with shooting averages of 77% and 82% respectively.

 

 

 

The Humming Birds on the other hand will be pushing for an outright win.  Their ‘trump cards’ are Elaine Davis with 62 baskets and Melisha Josephs 32 and shooting averages of 77% and 89% respectively.

 

 

 

The third match which will be played concurrently with the second match will likely determine the first team to be eliminated from the league.  The winless St. Ann Orchids (after three matches) will face the St. James Sharpes who has only won one of their three matches.  The teams have the lowest number of points of zero and two respectively.

 

 

 

The matches to date have been extremely competitive with the teams even matched after being selected by way of lottery in March.
