Brighton led in all quarters, 11-8, 30-20, 44-34 and finally 60-50.

Jasmine Frank, who was the competition’s top shooter, with a total of 285 goals, was again in tune, as she poured in 42 of her team’s tally.

In the third place play off which preceded the finals, Enhams Playin It Safe got past East Coast, 27-24, to dock in third.

Jasmine Frank was also named Brighton’s Most Valuable Player, with Shannan Sayers, the recipient for Desperadoes.

The other MVPs were Danielle Spencer for East Coast; Juliette Burke- Enhams Playin It Safe, and Nicola Mc Millan Bonhomme Ghetto Stars.

The Most Disciplined Team award went to Bonhomme Ghetto Stars.

Speaking at the Closing Ceremony, President of SEDI Albert Harry expressed regret that the revived competition started with six teams, but Stubborn Girls fell by the wayside.

He revealed that the 2012 edition will be broadened to include teams from outside the South East belt.

Harry also indicated that also in line for next year will be the return of competitive Cricket in Stubbs.

Also addressing the ceremony were First Vice President of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Netball Association Anthony Jack, and Minister of National Mobilisation, Youth, Sports etc. Hon Frederick Stephenson. (RT)
