The M1 SCL was started in 2006 with the intention of providing more competition time for schools who failed to qualify for the National Inter-Schools Netball Championships. Many of these schools trained for a whole year only to get to play 3 games in the Zonal Championships. The M1 SCL gives these schools an opportunity to play more games, against more schools of a similar standard, and across the 4 zones.

St. Nicholas Girls Secondary School 35 – 16 St. Anthony’s Canossian Secondary School
St. Nicholas Girls edged out St. Anthony’s Canossian. As soon as the game got underway, the difference in class showed. In the 1st quarter, St. Nicholas Girls took a 12-3 lead which increased further to 19-9 at the halfway mark. When the 3rd quarter recommenced, the SNG girls went all out to narrow the score with some nice attacking play to lead 27-12. When the final whistle was blown, the score read 35-16.
Yuan Ching Secondary School 45 – 27 Yusof Ishak Secondary School
Yuan Ching netballers dominate Yusof Ishak 45-27. Yuan Ching started well in the first quarter and created a couple of turnovers to lead 11-8. The second quarter saw Yuan Ching’s Goal Attack did the business at her end of the court. Her physical presence in the semi-circle allowed her to collect lobs and to give Yusof Ishak the 21-16 lead at the half. When play resumed in the 3rd quarter, Yuan Ching started with a rather fast counterattack that gave them a point, 31-22. In the 4th quarter there was absolutely no way back for Yusof Ishak as soon as the game got underway again, taking the final score and match to 45-27.
Compliments to St. Nicholas Girls Secondary School and Yuan Ching Secondary School for winning in their respective divisions!
