A weakened Horsham 1 record a narrow win over Brighton 2

A weakened Horsham 1 (Phil Stimpson and Dix Roberts were absent) just managed to beat Brighton 2 3-2. Paul Taylor suffered an early disaster against Jason Kirk, and then Ian Comley drew a complex struggle against "County Luminary" Paul Selby. I was able to score a convincing victory with Black in only 30 moves against Mustapha Othman, which left things down to the last couple of games. Gavin Lock looked to have the better of it against Chris Lowe, while Peter Harbott was in big trouble against Martin Roe.

Horsham 2 v Knoll Knights Result

The Horsham 2 match against Knoll Knights hangs in the balance, with the result swinging on the result of the top board game between Donald Macfarlane and Mike Forster. The score in the other games was two wins apiece.

UPDATE: As indicated by Anthony in the comments, a draw was agreed on board one, so Horsham 2 achieve a draw - an excellent result.

The results of the individual games are given in the table below:

Horsham 1 defeated by Lewes 1

Horsham 1 suffered a defeat away to Lewes 1 last night. There was an early draw between Dix Roberts and Martin Costley, as the former was unable to dent the latter's solid Double Fianchetto formation. This was followed by defeats for Phil Stimpson and James Mansson, leaving Horsham 2.5-0.5 down with two to play. Unfortunately, no miracle occurred this time, as Dominic Lawson got the better of Paul Taylor. Anthony Higgs' win again Barry Maufe merely served to make the score respectable.
