A Quiet Week


A reminder that the West Wales Congress will soon be upon us.

After the hectic first week of the season the week just gone was a quiet affair with only three matches taking place.

In Division 2 there were 2 interclub matches.  Morriston C played host to the Morriston D and in similar fashion to their A team lost to the nominally lower ranked team.  3-2 in favour of the D’s.

De la Beche B, however, made no mistakes against their C team and annihilated them 5-0 helped in part by a board 4 default.

Division 3 had just the 1 match when Morriston G travelled to Briton Ferry and played BF Brunel.  Four of the games ended fairly quickly all going to the Briton Ferry team.   Only board 2 lasted any length of time with John Ward and Albert Easton battling out a tight endgame.  In the end John overcame the 300 point grading difference and stopped the whitewash.  4-1 to Brunel and a top spot position after 2 matches.

With October fast approaching it is time to put out a reminder that the West Wales Congress takes place over the weekend of the 11th- 13th.   Les Philpin (newsilure@hotmail.com)  is the man to contact if you want take part.
