BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, October 8, 2021 (MMS-SKN) — Six of the seven games played on Thursday evening October 7 in the fourth segment of play in the 26th edition of Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League featured an all-round improved showing by the players as the competition heats up.
While they did not choose the venue, Small Corner Bar Domino Club met Guinness Domino Club at Cuban Bar in Lodge Project, where Small Corner Bar edged out Guinness 13-11 in a close contest.
At the neighbouring venue, the old Lodge Community Centre, two former champion teams faced their opponents with confidence as Unity Domino Club beat Sylvers Domino Club 13-6, and Lodge Domino Club stopped Unstoppable Domino Club with a 13-7 beating.
Defending champion team, Tabernacle Domino Club scrapped through a narrow 13-12 win over Phillips Domino Club in a highly competitive game at the Tabernacle Community Centre. The second game at the same venue saw Christ Church Domino Club beat another former champion team, Parsons Domino Club 13-7, after they would have beaten Lodge Domino Club on Tuesday.
Ottley’s Domino Club who returned to the league after an absence of many years won their first game by beating, in a closely contested game, Saddlers Domino Club 13-12 at the Edgar Gilbert Sporting Complex pavilion in Molineux.
The second game at the same venue between Mansion Domino Club and Molineux Domino Club did not take place after Roger Crawford, Captain of the Mansion team, raised an objection that the Molineux team had two ‘outside’ players. Players in the teams must be from their respective constituencies (Number Six or Number Seven), but an exception is allowed for one player from outside the constituency to play on the team.
At the end of the fourth segment of play in the 26th edition of Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League, preliminary point standings have Christ Church and Unity sharing the top position with 18 points each, closely followed by the defending champion team Tabernacle who have 17 points.
