Defending champions Fire will set out in quest of their second win in the Courts All Sectors Premiership today when they take on Police Y in the feature event at the Eastern Indoor Sports Facility at Tacarigua.
The powerful Fire outfit made the perfect start to their campaign last Saturday, stopping Defence Force 50-35; today’s contest, the final of a five-game programme, gets under way at 5.30 p.m.
Preceding that game, Defence Force can be expected to go all out in a bid to register their first points when they take on Police X at 4.15 p.m.
The officers won their opener against their colleagues, Police Y, last weekend and the outcome of today’s game could be a strong indicator of who will challenge Fire for the league title this season.
Three Championship Division games are also carded and heading the list will be the clash of reigning champions Bermudez and last season’s third-placed team, Jabloteh, at 3 p.m.
Before that, Open Campus (UWI) and TSTT will start proceedings at 12.30 p.m. and Police Y will take on UTT at 1.45.
Meanwhile, University of the Southern Caribbean (USC), TT Post and Jabloteh all registered wins in the Alternative Division on Thursday evening.
Goal-attack Gellana Grant converted 10 of her 21 attempts and Chelsea Fraser scored five of 13, as USC just managed to hold on to a 15-13 win over UWI, after having led by nine points (11-2) at the halfway stage.
Crystal James had the hot hand for TT Post, scoring 29 goals from 38 tries as they saw off Las Lomas, 35-28. Kyla Jattan (14/19) and Aaliyah Paul (14/20) shared the points for Las Lomas.
And Nicola Solomon (16/21) led Jabloteh’s shooters as they handed Police Y a 20-15 defeat in the late game. Jada Chandler was the officers’ best shooter on the evening, scoring 10 from 25 attempts.
