Horsham 6 Notch Up Another Win

The 6th team were victorious in their home match against Woodpushers 2 last night, winning by 3.5 - 1.5. Oliver Thorne and Richard Hewitt each won on the lower boards against noticeably higher-graded opponents. Peter Helliwell provided the 3rd win on board 3, while I had a draw on board 1. Roger Waddingham, alas, went down to a counter-attack from what had seemed a strong position.

Horsham 6 reach the mid-season point in a strong position, having now scored 4 out of 5 in MSL Division 4.

The full match results were:

Breaking news...

Further to Ian's post below celebrating Horsham 2's achievement, it looks like we are also Division 4 champions, as Horsham 6 upset Hastings 4 in dramatic style to hand Horsham 5 the division title...

thumbs up

Last night saw Horsham 6 compete in our first away game of the season (not counting the first game against Horsham 5!).

Our opponents …. the formidable Brighton & Hove 5 team, the current leaders of Div 4 who had easily won their first 2 matches. But was last night going to be their night? No, it wasn’t! From being down 0-2 (by about 9:30pm) Horsham 6 duly ground out hard fought wins on the 3 remaining boards securing the all important match victory at 10:45pm.
