Back On Top Of Division 3

Fenton 'A' moved into joint 1st place in Division 3 for the first time this season with a 2.5 - 1.5 win at Newcastle 'C' last night. Jason got us off to a good start with an excellent win on board 3. This was soon cancelled out though as Geoff, playing on board 4, tried a piece sacrifice that didn't come off. This left the score at 1 - 1 with the games on the top two boards going right down to the last few seconds. With no time left on either clock a draw was agreed in Rob's game on board 1. This was a great result for Rob against an opponent graded 40 points higher than him. My game on board 2 was the last to finish and I had the advantage of two connected passed pawns on the King and Queen files and I was also a pawn up. My opponent was left with no time to find a defence and his flag fell giving me the game. You can click here to view the full match score card.
