BUOYED by back-to-back wins, Clarendon Gaters will look to keep their play-off aspirations alive when they face Manchester Spurs in the 6:00 pm opening game of today's double-header in Netball Jamaica's Berger Elite League, at the Leila Robinson Courts.

Merely days ago, the Gaters looked out of the runnings as they were without a point, having lost all their first six matches in the six-team, 10-game preliminaries.

However, the Dalton Hinds-coached team sprung to life with a 48-47 victory over high-flying Manchester Spurs on Monday night, then followed that up two days later with a 53-49 win over St Catherine Racers.

Those two wins have launched the Gaters up to six points, the same number as St James Sharpes and three behind the Racers, who have nine points.

All are chasing the final play-off spot, and victory for the Gaters or Sharpes would push them up to nine points, with Sunday's fixtures the last of the preliminaries.

St James Sharpes will face St Ann Orchids in this evening's feature match, which is set to get underway at 7:30.

Shedeiky Barnes and Shadian Hemmings delivered the goods for Clarendon Gaters on Wednesday, with Barnes scoring 33 from 38 attempts and Hemmings converting 20 of 23.
