Calypso Girls finish World Cup with another winning effort
Trinidad and Tobago goal-shooter Samantha Wallace scored 53 goals to ensure the Calypso Girls recorded their sixth win in a row yesterday at the Netball World Cup in Sydney, Australia, sealing ninth place overall in the process.
T&T had already beaten Samoa 67-47 earlier in the tournament when they met at the second eight Group G last week. However, the local netballers were expecting a stern test after a nail-biting 57-56 extra-time victory over Scotland in their previous encounter on Saturday.
T&T started the match with the intention of using their most potent weapon as much as possible. Wallace scored all 15 of her tries in the first quarter, a total which saw the Calypso Girls end the first quarter with a slim 15-13 lead over the Samoans.
