On Friday 28th February Bexhill 3 travelled to Horsham to take on their 4th team in Division 3 of the Mid Sussex League.
We were hoping to maintain our 100% record in the Division, and, I am pleased to say, we did with a resounding 4 to 0 win.
Steve Merchant, was first to finish on board 3, when he comprehensively out played his opponent in the endgame.
Bill Luxton on board 1 continued his outstanding season for the 3rd team by checkmating his opponent for his 6th win from 7 games
Derek Cosens on board 4 found an excellent tactic that won a Bishop, and he maintained his lead into the endgame and forced a resignation from his opponent.
On board 2 I, like Derek, found a tactic to win a Bishop and also maintained this advantage into the endgame and eventually my opponent resigned.
We now have 2 league matches and one more win will secure the top spot.
