'B' Team Result Undecided

The 'B' team travelled to Cheddleton 'D' last night for the clash between the top two teams in Division 3. Early draws on Boards 2 and 3 by Derrick and Steve made the score 1-1. Geoff then recovered from a pawn down, and a seemingly inferior position, to score yet another win in his 30th match of the season, to put us 2-1 up. Rob ran out of time in his game on Board 1, but we are claiming a draw on the basis that his opponent was making no attempt to win the game. If our claim is upheld we will win the match 2.5 - 1.5 but, at the very least, we will have drawn the match and remain 2 points behind Cheddleton with 2 matches in hand. If our claim is upheld we will be level on points and with 2 matches in hand.
