PMS give Champions their first loss in two years

The Princess Margaret School 16 and Under team handed two-time champions, Antigua Girls’ High School (AGHS), their first loss in two years in the Inter-School Netball league on Monday afternoon.

PMS, known as a dominant force in school sports, defeated the champs, 10-6 at the YMCA Sports Complex.

Earlita Destin scored seven out of her 10 attempts for the victors while goal-attacker, Alika Samuel chipped in netting three of her 11 attempts.

  The ladies in pink and grey were a force to be reckoned with leaving AGHS visibly frustrated as goal-defender Karel Knight displayed true skills by intercepting almost every pass.
