DOMINOES: Bubble bursts for tabletoppers

THE BUBBLE has burst for table toppers Bestwood Village Social Club as they tasted defeat for the first time this season in the HUCKNALL SUMMER DOMINOES LEAGUE.

Bestwood had surprised the other nine outfits with a blistering start to the campaign that yielded four straight victories.

But they went down 3-2 at George Street B, who are now one of three teams deadlocked at the summit on eight points. Bestwood lead courtesy of leg diference.

The others also on eight points are second-placed Crafty Conny, who notched up their fourth win from five outings with a 3-2 success against newcomers and bottom side Station PH, who have lost all five of their matches.

Reigning champions Talk Of The Town showed a return to form after a torrid start to their defence with a 5-0 whitewash of Royal British Legion.

Elsewhere there were 3-2 victories for Shamrock, over Conny A, and Bentinck Club, over Station B (Hucknall).
