Wales v Jamaica


In the most atmospheric and tense game of the tournament so far Jamaica emerged victorious after a highly competitive 60 minutes against the Welsh. 

The final and deciding match of Group C was explosive. Both teams went out all guns blazing from the first whistle and bodies clashed on court as the fight for the win ensued. 

The first two quarters saw end to end action. Both Wales and Jamaica contested every ball going but it was Jamaica's impeccable shooting that put them ahead- incredibly they scored 100% of shots taken in the first half. 

As the clock ticked, the physicality of the game increased and the vicious nature of the players swung into action. Adean Thomas took the full brunt of it and was the first casualty in the on court fight. But that didn't deter the Jamaicans as they progressed full steam ahead into the last quarter, finishing the game with an impressive seven goal run to end 72-49.

"We're feeling very elated. We expected Wales to come and give us a run but we managed to withstand it." Said Marvette Anderson, assistant coach of Jamaica. 

After that win Jamaica earned the preferable route through to the semi finals, avoiding giants New Zealand who now face Wales. Marvette feels her team have what it takes.

"Each game is as important as the last. We're going to build on the positives and come ready to play."
