Jamaica’s Sunshine girls completed a route of England’s Rose’s in their three Test series with a 58-43 victory at the National Indoor Sports Complex in Jamaica on Monday.

The Girls, as they had done in the first game when they won 55-43 and in the second when they were 58-39 winners, started quickly.

The Sunshine Girls led 16-10 in the first quarter, but extended their lead in the second to lead 30-21 at the half. Again, that lead would be extended, as the Sunshine Girls led the Roses 46-34 at the end of the third quarter.

Things got worse for the Roses in the final quarter, with the Jamaicans running out 58-43 winners.

On the way to that total, Jhaniele Fowler-Reid led all scorers, sinking 42 goals from 46 attempts from goal shoot, while goal attack, Shanice Beckford had 12 from 17 and Shaniel Slater enjoyed a cameo with four from six.

In the losing effort, the Rose’s Georgina Fisher was the best, grabbing 24 goals from her 28 attempts, while Eleanor Chadwell, who had started in the goal shoot position, had 11 from 15.

At goal attack, Kadeen Corbin sunk eight goals from 13 attempts.
