JAMAICA THROUGH TO SEMI FINALS
Jamaica beat Trinidad and are through to the semi finals where they will face New Zealand.
Jamaica scored exactly double their opponent's total, but played a patchy game which included some good moments.
Jamaica lead 4-0 at the start before letting Trinidad into the game but captain Vangelee Williams was keen to keep improving. "We had a lot of turnovers so we need to fix that. We can't wait for tomorrow and to show the world what we are about."
Trinidad were pleased to make an improved performance against their Caribbean neighbours, their captain Amanda Cameron saying it was a tough encounter. "That was one of our best games against Jamaica. It was well fought, we just didn't come out on top today."
They shot a near perfect game throughout the sixty minutes, but Jamaica's mid court unit disrupted any passages they did have, so the shooters were starved to only 35 attempts.
Marvette Anderson, Jamaica's assistant coach said the girls did reasonably well . "They had a few little rough patches here and there but nothing that we can't fix for the semi finals."
"We know it's going to be tough be we are ready enough for the challenge."
Final score: Jamaica 64, Trinidad & Tobago 32.
