Kwakwani Untouchables ‘A’ lift GBF National Women’s 3×3 title

Kwakwani Untouchables (A) – GBF National Women’s 3×3 Champions

Kwakwani Untouchables (A) team, apart from Leacock, came from Shania Sears, Natalya Clarke and Malia Samuels and were only made to sweat against the Linden Raiders team, where the game went to overtime.

Kassidy Woolford, suiting up for Linden, hit a two-point shot as the time expired to send the game into overtime and score tied at nine points.

However, Leacock, who represented Guyana at last year’s FIBA 3×3 AmeriCup in Miami, showed her superiority, scoring the two points needed by Kwakwani Untouchables (A).

Meanwhile, the second team from the upper Berbice River community in Region 10 only defeat came against the tournament’s eventual winners.

Sherel Leacock, Rihanna Archer, Brianna Benjamin and Lenasha Mohamed – the quartet that formed Kwakwani Untouchables’ second unit, also had a good showing in the tournament, a performance that saw them finish second.

A national football player from Bartica, Kirsty Thomas, joined Woolford, Demelza Nicholas and Rehaicia Romain to lace up for Linden Raiders.

The University of Guyana Trojans (Jamaicy Ogle, Norissa King, Shanill James and Keisha Copperfield) won two of their five games, losing to both teams from Kwakwani and Linden, but grabbed wins over President College.

President of the GBF, Michael Singh, thanked the players for an entertaining day of 3×3 basketball while promising, on behalf of the Federation, to pay more attention to female participation in the sport locally.
