 The visitors arrived one short, so we were off to a start with a free point. 

Peter followed up his  great performance in the club championship by coming in with another win here. 

Mirka again entirely justified the confidence her captain shows in her as our usual top board, with a seventh win for the First Team  this season.

Since Martin came in with a draw that saw  the team already with a winning lead.

With two games still in action, Roly was unlucky to lose on time in a position where he otherwise would have at least had a draw. 

Stephen was the exchange ahead but with just minutes to go, had to concede a draw owing to his opponent's active play .

So the final score was 4- 2 in our favour.
