Team B helped their quest for a return to Division 2 next season with a 5 – nil victory over the University B team tonight. Despite the impressive scoreline the team had to work hard for their win – the University players were no pushover.
Up in Division 1 Team A didn’t have such a happy outcome against a strong Copperworks team. The were outgraded at every board (by an overall 81 points) but still managed to gain 3 draws from the 5 games. Final score: loss by 3½ to 1½.
Meanwhile, back at the Fox & Grapes, Teams C & D were matched against each other. Both teams were able to take something home: they drew 2½ to 2½.
No league matches next week – it’s the first round of the Ellis and Appleby competitions for individuals. We’ll be well represented in both tournaments.
