Reivers v Forest Hall Ensigns

Posted by fellman01 on January 20, 2017

This match was played at Corbridge on Thursday, January 19th, with the following line-up:

  1. Peter Crichton (139) v Roy Perrier (121)
  2. Steve Larkin (120) v Alex Brodie (u)
  3. Malcolm Reid (107) v Tom Macallister (95)
  4. Dave Foster jr (94) v Weiming Xu (99)
  5. Dave Humphreys (70) v Jamie McIntosh (91)

First to finish was Dave F, who lost, but I saw nothing of his game so I cannot comment. 0-1

Next up was Peter, who clearly had the better of the opening, and the pressure he was able to apply proved decisive. 1-1

Malcolm launched one of his sacrificial attacks, which this time paid off, opening up his opponent’s king and leading to mate. 2-1

Dave Humphreys was a last-minute replacement for Christine and acquitted himself well, going into the endgame a piece up and making it tell. 3-1

Steve’s opponent had an answer to everything Steve tried, and in the endgame exploited his 2 pawn advantage with great skill. 3-2

This win gives us 9 points from a possible 10 and leaves us well placed for promotion. Well done, team!
