CariFin All Fours Action
The CariFin Games Annual All Fours Competition, the seventh event on the CariFin Games 2018 calendar was held on Saturday, April 28, 2018, at the Guardian Holdings Limited, #1 Guardian Drive, West moorings.
This year, six financial institutions were represented; last year’s second place winner, ANSA Financial Services Limited (ANSA), First Citizens (FC) and Guardian Group Limited (GGL) registered two teams each while defending champs Republic Bank Limited (RBL), Jamaica Money Market Bank (JMMB) and Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago (CBTT) registered one team each.
The action kicked off from 10: 00 am and the teams were placed in groups to compete with the best out of three moving on to the semi-final round of the competition.
Last year’s second place winner, ANSA ensured there was no room for error as both teams secured a spot in the final. In the first semi-final, ANSA A went head to head with GGL. The pressure seemed too much for GGL who in a desperate attempt to save face made an illegal substitution during their game, however, the faux pas led to their disqualification giving ANSA A an all-access VIP pass to the finals.
The second semi-final, between ANSA B and CBTT, was exciting and nail-biting, to say the least. Each team won 1 game each and it came down to the last table to decide who would move on to the final. In the end, CBTT was no match for ANSA B, the more dominant team on the day, and they were defeated.
The finals would be ANSA A v ANSA B however, in a display of sportsmanship and good faith ANSA B decided to concede first place to ANSA A and claimed second place with third place going to CBTT.
The CariFin Health and Fitness Club will like to extend congratulations to ANSA Financial Services Limited on their clean sweep of the CariFin Games Annual All Fours Competition 2018. We will also like to offer sincere thanks to all participating teams and their supporters for making this event a success.
