Many of the Corporate Area's big players will be on show this afternoon when Netball Jamaica's Supreme Ventures Surrey County League continues with three matches at the Leila Robinson Courts, National Stadium complex, this evening.Three matches are scheduled, all slated to begin at 7:30 pm. Mico 'A' will face St Andrew runners-up UWI 'A', Skibo will engage Arnett 'A' and St Andrew Major League champions UTech are lined up against Mico 'B'.

Also, a number of matches are scheduled in the JN Bank Relegation League that promotes its winners to the Champion's Cup. At 5:30 pm, Ebony Strikers vs Jamaica Constabulary Force, Sports & Games vs Hagley Park 'A', Determine vs Maverley and Progressive vs Sports & Games 'B'. At 6:45 pm, Jobs Lane 'B' vs Alexander , Molynes 'B' vs Westchester, Liguanea vs Southboro and Eden Strikers vs 3 West United.

There were a couple of Major League encounters in the Middlesex County Championship League, with all the matches played at Norando Bauxite Sports Club, Discovery Bay, St Ann, on Saturday and one continuing into Sunday due to a heavy downpour.

Jamalco, which has churned out a number of the top players in the country over the years, ran out one of the big winners on Saturday.

In one of two Supreme Ventures Major League matches, Clarendon-based Jamalco thumped Titans 56-36. The other Major League contest was a close affair, with Westlanders carving out a three-point victory over Scorchers in a 39-36 finale.

Warriors registered another of the more comfortable winning margins of the afternoon, as they defeated Jetters 30-19 in one of two Sunshine Cereals Intermediate League contests. That match was also the day's feature. In the other Intermediate League encounter, MD Strikers scored a close 25-21 victory over Bethel Town.

Meanwhile, Hayes All Stars 'B' notched their second consecutive win, by beating St Ann Keiki 28-20 in a Supreme Ventures Minor League encounter. The Hayes team had opened their campaign with a 37-23 win the previous weekend against Ocho Rios Diamonds.

The latter suffered a second loss on the trot — against Friendship — in a match carried across into Sunday because rain forced an unscheduled stoppage. In the long run, Friendship prevailed easily with a 29-9 shot count.
