Morne Zion Wins Digicel Knock-out Competition
The Mahaut Domion Team, Morne Zion, is the champion of the 2013 Digicel Knock-out competition.
As the Digicel Knock-out competition came to an end, the team was awarded at a prize giving ceremony on Saturday September 7th, at the Goodwill Primary School.
Yolandalee Roberts, Captain of the Morne Zion team, said out of the many years her team has participated in domino competitions, this was the first time they made it to the finals and she is elated that they won.
The team also received a cash prize of a $1000. Coordinator of the Digicel Knock- out competition Mr. Delvin Esprit, commended the team for their hard work, as well as Digicel for their continuous support of the competition.
Ms. Roberts also thanked her players for a game well played, as she said this was a team effort and they couldn’t have won without each other.
Mr. Esprit informed us, this year many sponsors came on board and in two weeks, a pair of players, the Abraham brothers from Grand Fond, will be travelling to Barbados to compete for the grand prize of $10,000.
The coordinator hopes the public and players will come on board to form a Domino National Association to ensure that the Domion game grows throughout Dominica.
39 teams participated in the competition.
