Classic favoured to take domino title

Multiple champions Caribbean Classic are the overwhelming favourites to take home another domino title tomorrow. They will face underdogs Exceptional International in the final of the City of Kingston Credit Union-sponsored Portmore Domino Major League at Caymanas Park tomorrow at 11:30 a.m.

Exceptional International have been in the league just a couple of seasons and they came in the quarter-final round as the seventh seed. They sent home two big guns, Spit Fyah, the second seed, and Fort International in quarter-final and semi-final stages respectively.

Caribbean Classic easily defeated Right Stuff by 37 points (300-263) in semi-final play and are unbeaten all season, winning 20 games on the trot.

 

Edgewater hunt sixth win

Defending champions Edgewater (15 points) are in search of their sixth win in as many matches as they take on lowly placed Greater Portmore in the East Central St Catherine Constituency Portmore Under-15 Football League tomorrow at the Naggo's Head playing field. Match time is 5 p.m. Edgewater have won five games straight and Greater Portmore are without a win so it should be an easy assignment for the defending champions. Other scheduled games: Daytona vs Westport; Naggo Head vs Watson Grove and East Portmore Portal vs Cumberland. In games last Sunday, Edgewater thumped East Portmore Portals 4-1; Cumberland beat Greater Portmore 2-0; Naggo head clipped Westport 1-0 and Watson Grove and Daytona drew 0-0.
