TAFCA MATCH REPORT – Mon 3rd Dec 18
TAFCA Div 1 match
Perth A 4, Castlehill C 0 It was a lot closer than the score suggests, honest!
On board 1 Keith Rose (1495) against Martin Gourlay (1881) got a Knight on the dim side of the rim and paid the price!
Perth A 1, Castlehill C 0
On board 4 Colin Young (1360) gave Michael Roth (1597) a run for his money and was at least equal until the dreaded error move!
Perth A 2, Castlehill C 0
On board 3 Roy Morris (1446) seemed to have things under control against Gwenole Le Feuvre (1612), but lost his way and got checkmated!
Perth A 3, Castlehill C 0
The board two match between David Hall (1704) & Ray Noble (1482) was the closest match of all with Ray holding his own against a mush higher rated player!
But one move (34 …..Rxa2??) cost him the draw (34….Ra3 holds it!), and a very relieved David won a pawn and the game!
It took 5 pints before Ray had to admit defeat…cheers…hic!
Perth A 4, Castlehill C 0
