Sweet revenge for Covenant in domino league


Covenant Insurance Brokers made it two wins from as many games in the 2024 Winners Corporate Domino League on Friday, after defeating Crystal Network Solutions 138-98 in the second round of competition.

Nothing changed in the second half as Covenant Insurance Brokers maintained their dominance and, despite rotating their players and making numerous table changes, won the game by 40 points to remain on top of Group A by six points.
