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 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.
