Second Team close in on title

The Second Team are a win away from the Second Division title after victory against Atticus 4. Tony P had a quick win in 22 moves on his return to the side and Graham won his game to put us 2-0 ahead. Dave P and Martin both had pawn advantages in their games, however Martins position was unclear and Dave's was an opposite coloured bishop ending so draws were agreed in both. Dave E won his game leaving Steve and Tony Mc to finish the night. Tony blundered a piece in an equal ending while Steve fought off heavy pressure from his opponent to eventually come out with a somewhat fortunate win. 5-2 the final score. Graham leads the POTY competition on 9.5 points.
