LIVE FT: Uganda 52 Cook Islands 🇨🇰 39; Botswana 48 Jamaica 46
Uganda vs Jamaica 6pm
Gabarone, Botswana| THE INDEPENDENT REPORTER | Uganda’s She Pearls continued their perfect run in the Netball World Youth Cup with a 52-39 victory over Cook Islands at the UB Indoor Sports Arena on Tuesday.
The result of the day however came from the hosts Botswana, who upset fancied Jamaica 48-46 in their final Pool C match.
The earlier victory for Uganda’s She Pearls makes it a perfect three out of three games in their pool. The win comes a day after the She Pearls halted Botswana’s unbeaten run on Monday, but they could do the hosts a favour by winning on Wednesday against Jamaica.
That would leave Jamaica at 4 points, behind Botswana and Uganda who would advance to the quarter-finals. Otherwise, goal difference would determine who qualifies, if Uganda loses their final game.
This is the first time the International Netball Federation (INF) is holding an international event on the African continent.
The Netball World Youth Cup is the pinnacle of netball competition for emerging players who are under 21 years of age and the INF has held an U21 international competition every four years since 1988.
The African countries competing are Uganda, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana.
