BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, August 26, 2020 (MMS-SKN) — Two former Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League champions who are seeking to reclaim the coveted title this year met on Tuesday August 25 as the first round of the league’s 25th edition draws to a close, but in a domino competition only one team wins.
The highly anticipated game, which was held at Cuban Bar in Lodge Project, saw Lodge Domino Club play a cool and calculated game when they come up against Unity Patriots Domino Club whom they beat 13-9. However, Unity Patriots are still ahead of Lodge in terms of points standing.
Another highly anticipated game was the clash of frontrunners Phillips Domino Club and Tabernacle Domino Club who when they met were neck-to-neck in points standing. But at the end of the game which was held at the Tabernacle Police Station, Phillips surged ahead and topped in points standing after overcoming their challengers 13-8.
In a second game held at the Tabernacle Police Station, Christchurch Domino Club did not have time to console their colleagues at the bottom of the league’s points standing table Giants Domino Club whom they thrashed 13-5.
Defending champions Parsons Domino Club, who are lagging behind in terms of points standing squeezed a 13-10 win over Molineux Domino Club in a game held at the Edgar Gilbert Sporting Complex pavilion in Molineux. A second game at the same venue saw Unstoppable Domino Club beat Saddlers Domino Club 13-9.
Sylvers Domino Club brought to a halt their losing streak by clearly beating Small Corner Bar Domino Club 14-7 at the Lodge Community Centre in Lodge Project. In the second game held at the same venue, Mansion Domino Club spilled Guinness Domino Club courtesy of a 14-5 beating.
