Hastings 3 Snodland 1

Report

We had a good team out for the Harvey cup match at home on Saturday 25th March, Keith lost fairly quickly and it wasn’t that long before I suffered the captains curse and went the exchange down falling foul of a knight fork so losing a rook for a knight and I went on to lose.

Next a good win for Umberto on board 6.

James then gained a win while pushing a pawn to the 8th rank his opponant gave up his rook to stop it which really ended the game.

On board 5 Bill offered a draw when his position looked lost but his opponant accepted the draw as he didnt have a lot of time left and had played his moves very slowly.

On board 1 for a time it looked as though Brendon would lose with 2 knights to a rook but a few pawns up, he fought on brilliantly to trap the black king with the knights which would have allowed a single pawn to advance and his opponant resigned

Result Hastings 3.5 v Snodland 2.5
