BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, October 27, 2021 (MMS-SKN) — Standard of competitiveness improved in the ninth segment of play in the 26thedition of Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League played on Tuesday evening October 26, at the new Lodge-Ottley’s Community Centre, as there were no extreme results as was the case witnessed last Thursday.
Former champion team Unity Domino Club maintained its lead on the points standing table giving a clear indication, unless something drastic happens in the remaining four segments of play of the one-round only encounter featuring fourteen teams, that it intends to regain the crown.
Unity beat Mansion Domino Club 13-8 on Tuesday evening, while the other former champion team in Constituency Number Seven Domino League, Lodge Domino Club, beat Molineux Domino Club13-7.
The game between yet another former champion team, Parsons Domino Club, and Unstoppable Domino Club had some drama as Parsons had at one time led comfortably 7-3, but Unstoppable forcefully came back and tied the game at 7-7.
Not wanting to lose any more games and to keep their hopes alive, Parsons put pressure on Unstoppable winning five more games as their opponents added only two games and ended up leading 12-9. Needing only one game to win, the pair of Aston Williams and Melvin Gumbs returned 100 points without loss to earn a bonus game that gave them the 14-9 win.
Christ Church Domino Club, who beat Guinness Domino Club 14-9, also ended their game in a dramatic fashion as when they were leading 12-9 needing only one game to win, Steve Flemming and Curtis Williams raced to 100 points before their opponents could earn a single point, a feat that earned them a bonus game.
In other games, Phillips Domino Club beat Sylvers Domino Club 13-8, and Small Corner Bar Domino Club beat Ottley’s Domino Club 13-9.
