KINGSTON, Jamaica - Jamaica's Under-21 netballers suffered their second defeat in as many games at the hands of their Australian counterparts at the National Arena Saturday going down 51-25, and losing the three game series 2-0.

The Jamaicans scored first and held the Aussies early but it did not take long for the visitors to forge ahead going up 12-7 by the end of the first quarter.

The young Diamonds had more than doubled their score by the end of the second quarter, taking it 25-13.

The visitors continued to double the home team's quarterly score and were 40-20 at the end of the third quarter.

In Friday's opener of the series the Jamaicans were crushed 60-31.
