Former Champion Team Lodge Decimates Saddlers In #7 Domino League
BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, October 22, 2021 (MMS-SKN) — Fireworks characterised the eighth segment of play in the 26th edition of Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League played on Thursday evening October 21, at the new Lodge-Ottley’s Community Centre, with two of the seven games being almost one-sided.
Former champion team Lodge Domino Club did almost the unthinkable when they whitewashed Saddlers Domino Club 13-0 in a game that lasted under three hours. The pair of McAllister Thomas and Javed Thomas of Lodge won seven games, one of them a bonus game after they would have scored 100 points before their opponents could get a single point.
Also doing damage to the team from Constituency Number Six, Saddlers, were O’Niel Thomas and Edison Parris of Lodge who between them won six games, with two of the games earning the runaway 100 points before Saddlers players could get their dominos in order.
The game that took an even shorter time, under two and a half hours, was the one that showcased another former champion team Unity Domino Club as they beat Small Corner Bar Domino Club 14-5.
Starring on Unity side were Captain Desmond ‘Fergie’ Rawlins who paired with Antonio ‘Mash’ Phillip to win three games when they scored 100 points against none by their opponents for them to be awarded three bonus games. Everton Boon who returned after a long layoff teamed up with Bernard Wilson to get two bonus games, while Simeon ‘Cuban’ Liburd and Everton Boon won two bonus games for Unity.
In games where the opponents showed strong resistance, Guinness Domino Club had a narrow 13-12 win over the defending champion team Tabernacle Domino Club, and Unstoppable Domino Club beat Ottley’s Domino Club 13-11. The Unstoppable vs. Ottley’s game finished shortly after midnight.
Yet another former champion team, Parsons Domino Club beat Molineux Domino Club 14-6, while Phillips Domino Club ran-over Christ Church Domino with a 13-3 beating, and Mansion Domino Club beat Sylvers Domino Club 13-7.
At the end of the eighth segment of play in the 26th edition of Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League, former champion team Unity has widened its lead and remains at the top of the points standing table with 41 points.
