George, Ottley lead UTT to second straight win

The University of T&T continued its winning ways with a 43-36 triumph over Fire Services in the Championship Division of the Courts All Sectors Netball League (ASNL) on Saturday at the Eastern Regional Indoor Sports Arena, Tacarigua. Another big fan turnout was treated to some entertaining netball in three divisions of the ASNL. UTT used its trademark fast-paced play to take a quick 12-6 lead after the first quarter.
The 2008 most improved team played an entertaining free-flowing style, with rapid transition from defence to offence. The back bone of their game was speed, aggression and energy. UTT players attacked every ball and showed great physical conditioning for almost the entire match. Crystal Ann George and Angela Ottley anchored the team in defence and provided a springboard for the attack.
Fire had a line up of past and present national players. Janelle Barker led them with an efficient 17 goals from 20 shots, but she was frustrated by the defence of George and Ottley, as they denied her the entry passes she needed. At the other end of the court Gabrielle Selman and Nina Jordan had their hands full trying to stop Joelisa Cooper and Jillian Allan. Fire tried to match the pace of UTT but took themselves out of their natural game. The faster game suited UTT, and helped them to out run and out gun Fire. They led by as many as ten goals during the match.
Cooper had a game high 27 of 36 attempts. With its second consecutive victory of the season, UTT sent a strong message to all challengers. Defence Force registered its first win, 41-35 against Police in the second Championship division match. Defence Force had played to an exciting draw against Fire last week, while Police lost to UTT.
