The C team got off to a rocky start in our TAFCA campaign, with a disappointing loss to Newport Knights B. All seemed quite promising for a spell too. I won my game fairly quickly, Alan was under pressure but fighting, while Laurenziu and Robert were material ahead. Alan held firm for the draw, but Laurenziu and Robert let their advantage slip, and gradually succumbed to their opponents counter attacks. A setback considering our grading advantage, but not a fatal one as we play each other home and away this season, so time to repair the damage.
No carbon score sheets in Newport, and my game wasn’t particularly publishable! But thanks to our hosts, as gracious as ever.
