BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, November 5, 2021 (MMS-SKN) — It was an evening of anguish for three former champion teams of Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League on Thursday November 4 at the new Lodge-Ottley’s Community Centre, as the keenly contested competition entered the twelfth segment of play in the 26th edition of the league.
Unity Domino Club, a team that is leading on the points standing table, received a sound beating at the hands of Molineux Domino Club. In a game that had Molineux open up an early 4-0 lead saw Unity rallying back to have the game tied at 6-6, but Molineux showed that they still have playing power in them when they finished the game as the 13-9 winner.
Defending champion team, Tabernacle Domino Club did not have it that easy as they had to work extra hard to stop former champion team Parsons Domino Club with a 13-11 beating. The game between former champion team, Lodge Domino Club and Sylvers Domino Club ran into a dispute and was abandoned when Sylvers was leading 11-9.
In the most hotly contested game of the evening, Phillips Domino Club and Unstoppable Domino Club had gone neck-and-neck all the way to the end and after tying 12-12, the game could have gone either way. But Phillips’ Captain Allington ‘Leggy’ Berridge and player Desroy Tate could not stand any knockabout at that late stage and decisively stung Unstoppable with a 100-0 clean game that earned them a bonus game for a 14-12 win.
In other games, Saddlers Domino Club beat Guinness Domino Club 13-8; Christ Church Domino Club beat Small Corner Bar Domino Club 13-8; and Mansion Domino Club beat Ottley’s Domino Club 13-5.
Even with the loss at the hands on Molineux, at the end of the twelfth segment of play in the 26th edition of Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League, former champion team Unity is still firmly at the top on the points standing table with 54 points. It is followed by Phillips who have 46, Lodge 44 points, and Molineux 44 points.
