Result

Another heavy loss for the First Team, I regret to say. We got off to a bad start with losses on 4 and 5. I allowed the loss of a pawn for compensation. But by the time I won it back it was down to a queen and minor piece ending with nothing to play for.  The home side took a winning lead aginst Peter, one or two pans adrift.  More or less at the same time, Nicolas agreed a draw where he had just a very minor edge.  Roly also had an edge, and his opponent had less time.  The game though looked very complex, and given the match score he had no incentive to play on.
