-Edge Officers, Media at Police ‘A’ Division Games Day
The Ministry of Public Security held on Wednesday afternoon for a sensational victory in Police ‘A’ Division Games Day Domino Competition at the Brickdam Police Station, upsetting Officers of the Station
and the Media for the win.
Officers that included Commander, Clifton Hicken won two weeks in a row, making them the favourites to win. However, it was not to be as the Officers played from behind throughout the six sittings, surpassing the Media in the last two sittings to finish second.
Ministry of Public Security, which had a strong start, maintained their lead throughout, which became narrower through the sittings from strong challenges from the Media and Officers that was locked in a ding-dong battle for second.
Ministry of Public Security finished with 80 games with Officers behind on 74 games and Media on 72 games. The third week of the competition was the most exciting owed to the close contests that ensued for the coveted title.
Each team filled the venue with encouragement to team-mates and usual Domino banter that had the making of keen competition. In the end, the accusation of Stabroek News’ Duncan Saul ‘rap’ with tickets in hand in the penultimate round when he was ahead two games, stripped the Media of crucial games that pushed them in the cellar position.
Despite a spirited effort from there on, Media never caught up while Officers slipped ahead by two games to secure second. All this occurred while Ministry of Public Security saw their lead in the earlier sittings slipped from double digits.
Ministry of Public Security’s Joycelyn Jaigobin and Kemraj Phillips were joint Most Valuable Players (MVP) with 17 points while Stacey Joseph from the Ministry was the only Love Bird.
A strong team from Media will take on Officers and The Ministry of Public Security at the next Games Day next Wednesday.
