This is the first time that Wantage 1 have suffered a whitewash in a league game that I recall.  However we should have come away with something, even if we grant that Cumnor were too strong for us.
 
Roly had if anything the better of an endgame, but overlooked a knight fork.  Your author had an iteresting position of N + B v R, and should not have lost.  Ray on the other hand did not spot a pawn fork in his favour which would have won a minor piece.
