It was a totally different situation for Unstoppable Domino Club who had suffered defeat at the hands of former champions Unity Domino Club in the first round, as they narrowly edged out the former champions 13-12 in a game played at Cuban Bar in Lodge Project.
Defending champions Parsons Domino Club collected maximum points by beating Sylvers Domino Club 13-9 in a game played on the grounds of the Tabernacle Police Station; while in the second game played at the same venue Christchurch Domino Club also collected maximum points by beating Saddlers Domino Club 13-6.
At the Lodge Community Centre in Lodge Project, former champions Lodge Domino Club beat Mansion Domino Club 13-10, and in the second game played at the same venue Tabernacle Domino Club beat Giants Domino Club 13-6.
Molineux Domino Club and Guinness Domino Club amicably rescheduled their Sunday game at the Edgar Gilbert Sporting Complex pavilion in Molineux to yesterday Monday September 21, and when they met, Molineux continued with their newly found winning form by beating Guinness 14-8.
