Second round frontrunners suffer defeats in Constituency #7 Domino League
BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, October 11, 2019 (PLP PR Media Inc.) — Parsons Domino Club, the defending champions, and Guinness Domino Club had suffered a single loss each at the end of the fifth segment of play in the second round of the 24th edition of the annual Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League.
That scenario dramatically changed at the end of play in the Sixth segment on Thursday evening October 10, when both suffered identical losses (13-11) to teams they would have beaten in the first round of this year’s tournament.
In the battle of Constituency Number Six teams that was fought at Back Way Bar in Parsons Ground, Saddlers came with guns blazing showing scant respect for the home team and defending champions Parsons as at one time they were leading 7-1.
However, the home team salvaged quite some energy and fought back, but it was rather too late as the visiting Saddlers team returned home with a 13-11 victory. In the first round, Parsons had narrowly beaten Saddlers 13-12 at Shanty Bar in Saddlers Village.
Saddlers Domino Club is now the only team that still has a single loss in the second round, but a determination is yet to be arrived at after they would have been awarded a win over Small Corner Bar Domino Club in the first segment of the second round, a decision which Small Corner have appealed.
After having trounced Sylvers Domino Club 13-6 in the first round, players on the Guinness Domino Club thought they would easily repeat the feat in the second round that was played at Sylvers Bar, in Hidden Alley Lodge Village on Thursday evening. Things did not go according to plan as, Sylvers led from the start, at one point leading 6-2, but slackened somewhat and ended up with a 13-11 win over Guinness.
On the other hand, Molineux Domino Club collected maximum points (6) with their 13-0 walkover win against Christchurch Domino Club who could only raise three players for their intended encounter at the Edgar Gilbert Sporting Complex pavilion in Molineux.
In the other two games of the evening, former champions Unity Patriots Domino Club beat Small Corner Bar Domino Club 13-7 at Cuban Bar in Lodge Project, while Unstoppable Domino Club stopped Giants Domino Club 13-11 at the Lodge Community Centre in Lodge Project.
Seventh segment of play in the second round of the 24th edition of the annual Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League will be on Tuesday October 15 at three venues.
The Edgar Gilbert Sporting Complex pavilion in Molineux will host two games. The two teams from Constituency Number Six will be in action at this venue, where defending champions Parsons will meet Unstoppable, while sister team Saddlers will be facing Molineux.
Also hosting two games will be the Lodge Community Centre in Lodge Project, where Giants will face Christchurch, and Small Corner Bar will be attempting to spill Guinness. The fifth game will feature former champions Unity Patriots at their home base, Cuban Bar in Lodge Project, coming up against Sylvers.
