Cumnor 2 beat a sorry Cowley Workers 2 [Match Report]

Cumnor 2 finally managed to get its game against Cowley Workers 2 on Thursday evening.

You may recall that the match was originally scheduled to be played earlier this month, but had to be postponed due to a lack of players on the Cowley Workers side.

Unfortunately, Cowley Workers 2 still only managed to bring five players with them to last night’s rescheduled match – meaning they had defaulted one board from the beginning.

Robert and Graham finished their games first, both with wins and with oddly-similar mates involving both Bishops (see the final positions in the diagrams below).

Liam also got a win making it 4-0 to the Cumnor team playing at home.

Pako picked up an endgame draw but unfortunately Mike lost.
