JUST AS SWEET! - Bronze again for Sunshine Girls of JAMAICA......England win gold after stopping hosts Australia 52-51 in Netball

The Jamaica netball team rebounded from the heartbreaking one-goal loss to England in their semi-final game on Saturday, to score a 60-55 win over New Zealand in the bronze medal match and secure the country's 27th and final medal of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games on Sunday.
Jamaica Netball Team
It was the first time that Jamaica were defeating the Kiwis in a major tournament.
Cheered on by a handful of loyal fans, the Girls, who had less than 24 hours to recover both physically and mentally from their semi-final game, took to the court with purpose, obviously determined to not leave Australia without a medal.
Jamaica got off to a solid start in the first half, getting the ball in to Jhaniele Fowler-Reid who was able to do the early damage against the Silver Ferns.
The defensive pair of Shamera Sterling and Stacian Facey did well to limit the New Zealand attack as the quarter ended 15-11. more
