CWSA sink Transport and Works in Domino showdown

The Domino players who represented the Central Water and Sewerage Authority (CWSA) provided the solid combination needed to lift the inaugural title of champions of the Government Printery Sports Club competition.{{more}}

The “watermen,” as they were called, drowned the Ministry of Transport and Works 25-23, in a closely contested final at the Thomas Saunders Secondary School compound.

It was past midnight on Sunday morning that the final deluge of excitement came tumbling down, as CWSA finally was assured as the first holders.

Both camps were guilty of the blatant use of signs during their play.

CWSA, apart from the bragging rights, earned themselves the ten cases of Hairoun Beer and the winner’s trophy, which will be presented at a closing ceremony soon.

Transport and Works gets five cases of beer and a trophy.

“Water”, one of the late entries in the eight-team competition, got to the final after stopping RSVG Police 25-19 in the semi-finals, while Transport and Works downed SVG Port Authority 25-15.

The third place between the two losing semi-finalists did not materialize last Friday night, as neither team showed up.

President of the Government Printery Sports Club Preston Skerritt told SEARCHLIGHT that he was satisfied with the response to his club’s first major effort since being renewed September this year.

“ … Our club went through some years of dormancy and we thought this was a good way of reviving it with this type of competition,” Skerritt said.

The club’s president revealed that a softball cricket competition, also targetting the various government ministries as well as other private sector firms is set to be hosted by his organisation in February 2014. Skerritt stated that next on the plate of the club is a moonlight walk set for Saturday November 16 from the Peace Memorial Hall to Villa Beach.(RT)
