Brighton & Hove ‘C’ 2-3 Hastings & St Leonards ‘C’
Mid-Sussex League 2
In the battle of the third teams in the Mid-Sussex Division 2, Hastings wins 3-2 at Brighton to conclude their fixtures for the 2014-2015 season and finish a respectable 5th in the table. Brighton already relegated prior to the match put up a good fight but with a quick win by Marc Bryant on board 2, a solid draw by Steve Blewitt on top board and Mason Woodhams grinding out a win on board 5 a result was always looking good for Hastings. A draw by Derek Cosens on 3 concluded matters. Gary’s plan of giving his opponent a head start by either dropping three pawns or a piece in the opening and hoping for a heroic comeback to win the day didn’t quite play out as he expected but an interesting game nonetheless.
