Intro: Medway 0 – 4 Hastings

Hastings juniors beat Kent Intro Cup defending champions 4-0 last weekend to move 2nd in the table and potentially 3 matches away from lifting the title themselves. This was Medway’s biggest defeat in three seasons and provided compensation for the newly formed junior squad who were on receiving end of the same scoreline last season. The juniors are playing in an adult league and this was their third 4-0 in a row sending shockwaves through the division. William Cobb on board 2 was first to finish after just 20 mins of a 3 hour match when his opponent blundered his queen having been under pressure positionally from the start. Alex Lebedev showed again his excellent endgame skills by having two passers that the enemy king could only stop one from queening forcing his opponent to resign. Cool as cucumber Christy Parry on board 4 served up a dish of revenge against the gentleman who beat him last year after not really being troubled during the game. Magnanimous in victory as they were gracious in defeat last year the juniors are a real credit to the chess club and town. The junior’s next match is at home to Maidstone on Sat 14th March.

Hastings & St.Leonards 4 v Bexhill

 

Hastings & St.Leonards 4 v Bexhill

  • Rather astonishingly we won the match tonight, which at the time most of you left with the score at 1 – 2, looked rather unlikely.
    Just before 10pm, I managed to get to an advantageous opposite coloured bishop end game.  He put his bishop on a very poor square, and I was able to guarantee a queened pawn when he resigned. So 2 – 2.
    Adrian was fine, but John created a 2 pawn advantage on the wing which looked like could not be stopped.  Adrian threw a pawn up the centre of the board, and with a great tactical move, forced John into a very difficult position where he could easily have been mated.  Forced to think of a way out of it, he ran out of time.
    So a 3-2 win.  Very well done everyone for a great team effort.
    Next game is away to Horsham in March, so a breather.  But we now do have a good chance of gaining promotion, with one of our rivals (Worthing 4) being our last game in April.
