BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, August 21, 2020 (MMS-SKN) — When the tenth segment of play in the first round of the 25th edition of Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League opened on Thursday evening August 20, Phillips Domino Club and Tabernacle Domino Club stood side by side in terms of the number of games each had won.
Each had won eight and lost one but at the end of play when all results were in, Phillips were ahead of their compatriots having won their game against Mansion Domino Club who they beat 13-4 in a game played at the Edgar Gilbert Sporting Complex pavilion in Molineux.
Tabernacle on the other hand, playing in a neck-to-neck game against Saddlers Domino Club at the Tabernacle Police Station suffered a dramatic defeat to the team from Constituency Number Six. The two teams were tied at 12-12 and the game could have gone either way, but Saddlers dug deep into their reserves and in the last game they amassed 100 points before Tabernacle could attain a single point, earning them a bonus point and a 14-12 win.
Defending champions Parsons Domino Club regained their winning form and ended up stopping Unstoppable 13-10 in their game played at the Edgar Gilbert Sporting Complex pavilion in Molineux.
