Two clean sweeps (but only one was ours)

12 October 2002

It was a mixed bag of results for our League teams tonight – 2 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw. They included 2 5-0 clean sweeps – but only one of them was in our favour.

Pride of place goes to Team C in Division 3 and Team B in Division 2. They won their matches in fine style: 5 – 0 and 4½½.

A good result too for Team A who drew 2½ – 2½ playing away against high-powered Leeds University A in Division 1. Wins came from Daniel Staples and Paul Brencher and a draw from Dan Hill.

Team D were a trifle unlucky. They had good wins from Lewis Carroll and Ben Van Loo but a default on board 5 deprived them of a chance to win or draw the match against Alwoodley D. However it was great to see the return of Chris Tatham after a long absence even though he didn’t win his game.

Team E had a hard time, outgraded on the top 4 boards and defaulting on board 5. While their clubmates on Team C were hammering Forgrove’s Team E, 5 – 0 at the Fox & Grapes, they themselves were getting hammered by Forgrove D over at Oakwood by the same margin. Commiserations.
