The new domino season got off to a surprising start.
Island All Stars beat East End Mystical Youth by 12 points last Sunday in the Cayman Islands Domino Association 2013-2014 national league. The star players for East End were Kendal Connor and Gordon McLauglin and it was a team effort on All Stars’ part. The referee for this match was Ronald Minzett.
The contest served as the season opener for Mystical Youth, who have claimed three consecutive national domino championships. Sunday’s showdown was also a rematch of last season’s final, which East End won by 14 points back in August.
Aside from the All Stars-East End contest, last Sunday also saw the Roti team from Singh’s Roti Shop beating Eastern Star by 53 points. The star players for Roti were Patrick Beersingh and Jason Campbell and Eastern Star were led by Michael Whittaker and Clifton “Spider” McLaughlin. The match referees were George Dixon and Kael Leslie.
League matches continue this Sunday, Nov. 10, in George Town. Archies battle Roti at Archies Bar with Ultra taking on East End at Ultra Bar.
