Tynemouth D v Rievers

Posted by fellman01 on February 8, 2017

This match was played at Tynemouth on Tuesday Feb 7th, 2017, with the following line-up:

  1. Richard Oxnard (122) v Peter Crichton (139)
  2. Phil Jackson (121) v Ian Mackay (135)
  3. Dennis White (110) v Steve Larkin (120)
  4. Dennis Beagarie (110) v Bruce Reed (107)
  5. Peter Combellack (90) v Dave Humphreys (70)

First to finish was Steve, who had a fierce kingside attack going, when a miscalculation led to the loss of a bishop for a pawn. Fortunately, Steve still had mating threats and Dennis, while defending, blundered a rook and resigned. 0-1

Next was Bruce who went the exchange up early on, picked up a couple of pawns and had both rooks active on Dennis’s third rank, at which point Dennis resigned. 0-2

On board 1 Peter applied steady queenside pressure with his pawn majority, until it became clear that Richard could not contain the advance without serious material loss. 0-3

Ian’s game was level throughout, with Phil covering everything Ian tried and, with the match result decided, a draw was agreed. 0.5-3.5

Finally, Dave took his opponent to a King and pawns ending which he eventually lost, though he certainly made his opponent work hard for the win. 1.5-3.5

So the Reivers’ quest for promotion continues unabated, with eleven match points from a possible twelve, putting them on top of division 3 once more. Well done, team!
