SASCA B 5 – 1 Sheffield Deaf

A really positive team performance! Milana got her first win for the club on Board 2, after playing a very solid game throughout. Xiaorui was winning, and then losing, on Board 3 against Mark Kirkham before eventually reaching a dead-drawn rook and pawn endgame. Mengzheng (Evan) played a very positive game to beat Mick Simmons on Board 4, whilst Rishab drew with Howard Cooper on Board 5 in an opposite-coloured bishops endgame. Oliver won on Board 6 against Darci, and the team’s one adult (Tom Wills) won on Board 1 to leave a 5-1 win.

In other news, SASCA’s adult ‘A’ team moves three points clear at the top of the Division 1 table with four games left to play after beating Nomads A 3.5-1.5.
