Cumnor 2’s final game of the season took place on Thursday night, when we welcomed Cowley 4 to the Old School. Cowley 4 were sitting top of the table and needed a win to guaranty the title and promotion to the third division.
Susana lost her game on the bottom board while Ross who was playing his first game for the team had a close game but also lost. David got a deserving draw against a Sara who is 30 grading points higher than himself.
Marc had a good position in his game but couldn’t make use of it and made an error in the endgame. Steve tried to get a draw but couldn’t and eventually lost. Mark had an interesting game but had to settle for a draw.
Cumnor 2 fought gallantly but Cowley 4 got the win they needed.
Congratulations to Cowley 4! After the match we invited the Cowley players down to the Bear and Ragged Staff for a celebratory drink which was enjoyed by both sets of players.
