Mid Sussex league

Another lost battle for the first team

Match report from our captain Bill Tracey:

On February 7th our 1st team travelled to Lewes in search of a first win of the season.

Alas, this was not to be the case as the final result was Lewes 2.5 Bexhill 1.5

On board 4 John fought well but in the end his opponent prevailed.

On board 3 Leo had a fine scrap with his opponent and in the end a draw was agreed.

On board 2 Janis suffered his first loss of the season.

Andrew on board 1 played a fine game and held a 2 pawn advantage going into the end game which proved to be more than enough to secure the win.

We are now in a battle with Horsham 2 Crowborough 1 and Hastings 2 to avoid the drop to division 2.

We still have to play Crowborough and Hastings and 2 wins will keep us up particularly as we have a much superior game point difference than either Hastings or Horsham 2.
