Fourth Team lose at Waterloo

John Mc Reports - A default on top board meant everyone had to shuffle up a place when the 4th team played at Waterloo on Wednesday.  I agreed a draw after blundering away a knight and then winning a bishop to create a very equal position and Ken won well to level up the scores but things didn't stay equal for long. Henry lost his way in an unbalanced position and then Will, playing valiantly on top board eventually succumbed to inexorable pressure. Captain Bill was left to play on and might have been able to salvage something from a deteriorating position but with the match already lost he decided to resign and let us make the journey back.
