Many-time champions Kingston Wharves, in a well-disciplined performance, outplayed Jamaica Observer 119-108 in their Division One quarter-final match in the 2019 National Association of Domino Bodies Kingston & St Andrew Region Business House League at the National Housing Trust official car park last Friday.

Jamaica Observer were off to a flying start and took a six-point lead through players Ruddy Allen and Cheryl Young , who had won 10 consecutive games against Kingston Wharves' strikers Rohan “Guy Fox” Dixon and Fred “Teddy” Thomas.

However, with the lack of support from other pairs, Jamaica Observer surrendered the lead 49-62 to Kingston Wharves at the first half of the two-hour contest.

Jamaica Observer came out running in the second half, cutting the 13-point to two points, but with bad decision-making in the dying stages of the match, opened the door for Kingston Wharves to run away with a 11-point win.

Wray & Nephew Limited made their intentions known loud and clear with an emphatic 121-82 whipping of RJRGleaner in their quarter-final match. Wray & Nephew Limited took control of the game from start to finish, giving their opponents no time to settle in the contest.
