'B' Team Extend Lead At Top Of Division 2

The 'B' team extended their lead at the top of Division 2 to 4 points with a 2.5 - 1.5 win at Meir last night. It looked touch an go for a while though. Chris Hankey and Sam Feibel put us into a 2-0 lead, leaving us needing only a draw to win the match. Chris Brian then played an England cricket Captain's innings on board 4 by throwing his Queen away in a won position. We were then relying on Dylan on board 3 to win the match for us. He was down by the exchange of a Rook for a Knight and looked to be losing. At this point I couldn't take any more and had to leave the room !! However, I then received a message from Chris Hankey to say that he had turned his losing position into a winning position, but then managed to turn that into a draw, which was all we needed to win the match.
