Saint Lucia thumped Antigua and Barbuda, 42-14, to remain unbeaten.

.Veteran shooter Ianna Hippolyte made 12-16 shots on goal. Teenager Dasha Eugene converted 18-26, and Everlou Linor contributed 10-20, whilst Kamala Mangal struggled, hitting only 2-6.

The Antiguans, meanwhile, were held to a mere 24 attempts on the Saint Lucian goal.

In other games played on Monday night, St Kitts showed zero sisterly love to Nevis, giving them the worst beating they have had so far in this competition, 97-12, whereas St. Vincent and the Grenadines got back to winning ways, beating Dominica 54-25.
