Champions Lodge have an early unbeaten run in Constituency Number Seven Domino league

BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, August 5, 2018 (PLP PR Media Inc.)  — The annual Constituency Number Seven Dr the Hon Timothy Harris Domino League competition whose 23rd edition opened on Thursday July 19 has a new team from Phillips Village, but the overall number of team remains at fourteen as Mansion Domino Club dropped out after it failed to raise enough players.

As was the case in previous years, while the league is meant to be for domino teams from Constituency Number Seven which is represented in Parliament by the league’s sponsor, Prime Minister Dr the Hon Timothy Harris, only 12 teams are from the constituency as two teams, Parsons and Saddlers are from the neighbouring Constituency Number Six.

Five rounds of the league’s round-robin stage have been played and defending champions, Lodge Domino Club has won the four games they have played so far. The fifth game against newcomers Phillips has been rescheduled for a later date. With the four wins Lodge is the only unbeaten team. Unstoppable and Beers have four wins each, but would have lost a game
each.

It has been a mixed bag for the immediate past champions Unity Domino Club who have played four games, suffering two losses the first on Monday July 30 to defending champions Lodge, and an upset loss at the hands of the lowly Parsons of Constituency Number Six on Thursday August 2, at Parsons.

Newcomers, Phillips, have played three games losing two – the first to Parsons and the second to Beers which they lost via walkover having failed to raise a team, and they beat Guinness. Christchurch has won three and lost two; Sylvers have won one and lost three and are yet to play one; Parsons have won three and lost two; while Small Corner have won one, lost
three and have one to play.

Others are Giants who have won two games and lost three; Tabernacle who have won one, lost three and have one game still to play; Saddlers have won two games and lost three; while Molineux have won two, lost two, and still have a game to play against Tabernacle.

According to the league organiser, Mr Calvin Farrell, teams that missed to play for one reason or the other will be given new dates as to when they would meet. The outstanding games are Unity vs. Phillips; Lodge vs. Phillips; Molineux vs. Tabernacle; and Small Corner vs. Sylvers.

Games which were scheduled to have been played on Tuesday August 7 have been moved to Thursday August 9 as Tuesday is a public holiday. Mr Farrell advised all the teams that because of the change, the entire schedule has been pushed ahead by one playing-day (Tuesdays and Thursdays) and barring interruption by weather or any other unforeseen forces, the first round of the round-robin stage should come to an end on Tuesday September 4, instead of the advertised Thursday August 30.
