Mid Sussex league

Match report

Friday 20th October

Our team in board order  was  Michael Hayward, Sam, Seb and Sharon.

Michael faced an opponent rated 180 points higher than himself and for much of the game was under a great deal of pressure. However, despite time pressure Michael continued to find the right defensive moves and eventually turns the tables on his opponent and emerged victorious.

Sam and Seb put up strong resistance but eventually the experience of their opponents proved decisive and each had to resign.

Sharon on 4 played a tremendous game  finding many excellent moves  whilst under massive time pressure. Eventually in what looked like a very drawable position Sharon’s time ran out..

Hastings are now 4 from 4 in the league and already looking as strong favourite for the title, so although this match was lost 3 to 1 the team can feel proud of their efforts.
