Maynard, Inniss in dominoes Round 16
SWITCHING partners worked for one half of the defending champions but not the other when the National Domino Five-stars Associate Mixed Pairs slammed off Sunday night with 52 pairs in action at the St Leonard’s Boys School.
Last year’s champions Ralph Bailey and Joan Maynard played with different partners this time around and suffered mixed fortunes.
Bailey teamed up with his club partner Carolyn Harbin-goddard and suffered a second round loss to Edwin Martindale and Yvette Thompson 4-6, 3-6. However, Maynard joined forces with policeman Rodney Inniss to beat Ian Mullins and Charlene Bullen 6-5, 6-4 and secure a place in the Round of 16.
Former winners Hamilton Durant and Charmaine CarterDurant, were upset by Shurland Bovell and Maria Suhdukeo 5-6, 3-6.
Another shock came when Decourtney Estwick and Marsha Dephadine fell to Sterling Worrell and Wendy Brewster 5-6, 2-6. Also advancing were Charles Proverbs and Sophie Thorpe, who slammed Gladstone Licorish and Tamar Crichlow 6-1, 6-1, as well as Delisle Parris and Sharon Lynch with a 6-0, 6-1 pounding of Anderson Belgrave and Sherry-ann Dawson.
