C team home v Sale wed 31st Oct

Posted on: November 1st, 2012 by Bill Tait

this was the eagerly awaited return fixture. both teams tried to confuse the other with delaying the announcement of their line-up with a late arrival on each side.

we managed to keep the score at nil – nil for about an hour until they went one up after just after the ┬áhour. we pulled one back from Andy Walker making his first appearance at No5 (well done Andy) setting it up for a tight finish.

at this point, by my reckoning the top 3 boards entered their end games with all the EC players one pawn down. I was first to fall putting us 2-1 down. then David Taylor had a close finish making it 3-1 before Andrew Parry got the final point in Fergie time against Keith Hodgson. Keith was playing his first match for us and did really well.

final result 4 -1 to Sale. no red or yellow cards and no official complaints to FIDE from EC about the ref.
