Jamaica complete sweep of T&T with 73-22 victory in final match of Margaret Beckford Sunshine Series

By October 21, 2021

There were no surprises at the National Indoor Sports Centre on Wednesday night when Jamaica demolished Trinidad and Tobago 73-22 to complete a sweep of the Margaret Beckford Sunshine Series.

Following up on their 64-32 victory on Tuesday night, the Sunshine Girls produced their most dominant display of the series. They led 17-7 at the end of the first quarter and turned up the intensity in the second to lead 40-10 at half-time.

Jhaniele Fowler had her most productive game scoring 41 goals from 46 attempts and got support from Shanice Beckford who netted 13 of her 17 attempts on goal. By the time Fowler was taken out of the game, Jamaica was out of sight and it was left to Gezelle Allison 10 from 14 and Rebekah Robinson with nine from 13 to close the show.

Kalifa McCollin led the scoring for the Trinidadians with 14 from 17 shots while Afeisha Noel had seven from nine but they could do little to break Jamaica’s stifling defence that limited them to three goals in the second quarter and only five in the third as the lead stretched to 42 goals.

Jamaica won the opening game of the series 71-22 and then defeated the Trinidadians 64-32 to take an unassailable lead before closing off with Wednesday night’s dominant win.

Jamaica will now prepare for their three-Test series against England’s Roses in the Vitality Roses Reunited Series set for November.
