The first of the matches between the two Taunton teams took place on Tuesday 22nd Oct. As usual the Knights outgraded the Bishops but the Bishops were quietly confident, a bit like Wales against South Africa in the Rugby world cup. And so it was.
The only win from the Bishops was Jerry against Chris. Phil seemed to be alright against Arnold but more pawns won the day. Vic McAndrew played a blinder against Martyn (grades 78 v 119) but unfortunately Martyn wriggled his way out of defeat with a (sneaky) perpetual check.
David was in a strong position against Stan but didn’t pick the right moves to force a win. And then lost on time (again).
So the Knights won 2.5 to 1.5. Well done and may your luck run out for our next match.
