Unity Patriots in best-of-the-rest finals of Constituency #7 Domino League
BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, October 31, 2019 (PLP PR Media Inc.) — Past champions, Unity Patriots Domino Club, overcame Giants Domino Club 13-9 last evening Wednesday 30 to book a place in the finals of the best-of-the-rest competition in the 24th annual Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League.
In a game held at Cuban Bar in Lodge Project, Unity Patriots played with a purpose. They opened the match with a double win which was engineered from table one by Simeon ‘Cuban’ Liburd and Desmond ‘Fergie’ Rawlins. With Giants fighting from table two, soon the scores were 6-4 in favour of Unity Patriots.
Playing from table two, the set of Tyke Isaac and Keithly Blanchette delivered a double point game for Giants, to tie the game at 6-6. However, Unity Patriots won two quick points to lead 8-6, and before Giants could comprehend as to what to do, Everton Boon and Allington Berridge on table two delivered another double for Unity Patriots, to take the score to 10-6 in their favour.
The tide changed slightly, and Giants scored one point from table two and a double point game from table one masterminded by Kivaun Isaac and Eric Monzac which helped to reduce their deficit thus taking the points to 10-9 in favour of Unity Patriots.
Sensing Giants were closing up the gap, Unity Patriots players took the game to a higher level by quickly adding three straight points alternating between the two tables. These were single points, starting with table two, then table one, and back to table two and by 9:57 pm the past champions had posted a 13-9 win over Giants.
Unity Patriots Domino Club will now face Small Corner Bar Domino Club in the finals of the best-of-the-rest competition of the 24th annual Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League, whose date and venue had not been determined at the time of going to press.
Domino action continues tonight (Thursday October 31) from 7:30 pm with the second encounter in the best of three semi-final matches between defending champions Parsons Domino Club and Guinness Domino Club at Cuban Bar, and between Saddlers Domino Club and Unstoppable Domino Club at the Lodge Community Centre, all in Lodge Project.
Both Parsons and Saddlers beat their opponents in the first encounter held on Tuesday October 29, and should one or both win tonight the winner will go straight into the finals. However, should either Guinness or Unstoppable or both win in their encounter tonight, it will trigger a third game which will serve as a tie-breaker to determine which team goes into the finals.
