#7 Domino League: Unstoppable win first game by stopping defending champion team

BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, October 13, 2021 (MMS-SKN) — Unstoppable Domino Club, which had not won a single game in their first four outings in the 26th edition of Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League, won their first game on Tuesday evening October 12 in the fifth segment of play – and did it in grand style.

Having fallen to lesser mortals in their earlier four outings, domino enthusiasts looked forward to Unstoppable Domino Club players to being stopped in their tracks by defending team champion Tabernacle Domino Club players in their meeting at the old Lodge Community Centre in Lodge Project.

The art of demolishing a champion team: Loinston Fahie of Unstoppable Domino Club stopping Tabernacle Domino Club with a sound 13-6 beating at the old Lodge Community Centre in Lodge Project.

That was however not to be, as Unstoppable captained by Samuel ‘Nokie’ Wilson turned the tables on the defending champion team Tabernacle whom they soundly beat 13-6, a feat that earned them a bonus point. The win earned them six points instead of the standard five points.

Former champion team Unity Domino Club signalled its intention to reclaim the coveted title when they narrowly beat Christ Church Domino Club 13-12 in a game held at the Edgar Gilbert Sporting Complex pavilion in Molineux. While the feat earned Unity five points, the gallant showing by the losing team Christ Church earned them one point.

Two former champion teams had it rough on Tuesday evening. Guinness Domino Club, a team that had lost three games out of four turned the tables on Parsons Domino Club whom they also narrowly beat 13-12, in a game played at the Tabernacle Community Centre. Ottley’s Domino Club beat another former champion team, Lodge Domino Club 13-12, at the old Lodge Community Centre in Lodge Project.

In other games, Sylvers Domino Club beat Small Corner Bar Domino Club 14-7 when the two met at the old Lodge Community Centre in Lodge Project, while Mansion Domino Club beat Saddlers Domino Club 13-10 in a game held at the Tabernacle Community Centre.

In the meantime, the game between Phillips Domino Club and Molineux Domino Club that was supposed to have been held at the Edgar Gilbert Sporting Complex pavilion in Molineux did not take place after Molineux threw in the towel saying they could not raise enough players. This gave Phillips an effortless five points.

At the end of the fifth segment of play in the 26th edition of Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League, former champion team Unity has a clear lead with 23 points. It is followed by Christ Church 19 points, Sylvers 18 points, Phillips 18 points, and defending champion team Tabernacle 17 points.

Others, in order, are Saddlers 15 points, former champion team Lodge 14 points, Mansion 13 points, former champion team Parsons 13 points, Guinness 11 points, Small Corner Bar 10 points, Molineux 10 points, Ottley’s 10 points, and Unstoppable 6 points.

Sober enough to beat a former champion team: Leslie Thompson of Guinness Domino Club making a move as his team beat Parsons Domino Club 13-12 at the Tabernacle Community Centre.

Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League is sponsored by Prime Minister of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, and Area Parliamentary Representative for St. Christopher Seven, Dr the Hon Timothy Harris.

Sixth segment of play in this only round of play in the 26th edition of Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League will be on Thursday October 14 at the same four venues with all games starting at 7:00 p.m.

Tabernacle Community Centre will host the games between defending champions team Tabernacle and Molineux, and Christ Church and Saddlers. The Edgar Gilbert Sporting Complex pavilion in Molineux will host games between Parsons and Mansion, and Phillips and Lodge.

The old Lodge Community Centre in Lodge Project will be the venue for the Unity vs. Guinness, and Sylvers vs. Ottley’s games, while the final game between Small Corner Bar and Unstoppable will be held at Cuban Bar in Lodge Project.
