Scotland put on a dominant display, confidently winning 73-21 against the
After the spectacular opening ceremony featuring traditional pipes and
drums, and highland dancers, Scotland produced a crowd pleasing performance in
the opening game of the 2013 World Youth Netball Championships.
Although shaky at first they managed to find their stride by the end of the
first quarter and lead 18-4.
But ball handling and passing errors from both sides resulted in the ball
moving end to end without being converted. Scotland put good pressure on the
Cayman Islands to create the turnovers but lost their possession as they moved
through the court into attack.
After finishing at half time leading 36-10, Scotland felt confident enough
to bring some new faces onto the court, and their play continued to improve
throughout the final 2 quarters. The Cayman Islands began to tire as they tried
to keep up, but the home crowd spurred Scotland on to their first win.
Mary Tough, Scotland's U21 Coach, concluded the game saying "It was a
great win where we improved throughout the game, putting on a strong performance
to set us up for the next match on Saturday.
