Netball Jamaica - NWC2015 Update 07 Aug 15

Day 1 of NWC2015 started with a bang as 4th ranked Jamaica opened their account with a 90 - 44 win over 13th ranked Samoa at 10:50 am (Sydney time).   The Sunshine Girls launched their Gold Rush Down Under campaign on the court with intensity and dominated from start to finish, as all 12 squad members took to the court for a complete team effort.
Scored at the end of each quarter were as follows:
Q1 - JAM 25 SAM 9
Q2 - JAM 45 SAM 24
Q3 - JAM 72 SAM 33
Q4 - JAM 90 SAM 44
Remember to visit for comprehensive match stats, results, photos, short videos and other interesting features, as well as the Netball Jamaica FB page for great info.
The Opening Ceremony which started at 7:00pm and preceeded the Australia vs Trinidad match, was indeed a high energy and well choreographed set, showcasing the culture and history of Australia and the game of Netball and featured the parade of participating countries.   INF President, Jamaica's own the Honourable Molly Rhone, OJ delivered a stirring address which was well received by those in attendance.
All the pre-tournament butterflies have had a chance to settle down and the Girls will now turn their attention to long time rivals England in their next game tomorrow.  Jamaica has won 3 of the last 4 meetings between the 2 teams including 2 of 3 in Jamaica in January 2015, as well as for the bronze medal in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
