Lions roar back into contention

An already-interesting battle for the Silver King got that much more exciting as Muldoons 1 suffered their first defeat of the season against the CS Lewis Lions. In Division 2, Ballynafeigh 2 and Kelly's Heroes are pulling away from the field.

Division 1

  • Muldoons 1 2-3 CS Lewis Lions
  • Ballynafeigh 1 3-2 Bangor Groomsport
  • QUB 1 2.5-2.5 The A Team

After a poor start to the season, the CS Lewis Lions are just 2.5 points off the lead as they beat Muldoons 1 3-2. QUB 1 had a chance to unseat the Corporation Square side as leaders the next night, but could only manage a draw against The A Team, although that was enough for them to sneak back into second place. Lightning almost struck twice for Bangor Groomsport as they appeared to be in with a shout at defeating champions Ballynafeigh 1 again, despite being out-rated by over 300 points per board; however, the hosts just about managed to avert another major upset.

Division 2

  • Fruithill 1.5-3.5 Ballynafeigh 2
  • Kelly's Heroes 3-2 Muldoons 2
  • CS Lewis Witches 1.5-3.5 NI Civil Service

The top two sides in Division 2 both won to extend their lead over the competition. Ballynafeigh 2 emerge a point ahead as they saw off Fruithill 3.5-1.5 while Kelly's Heroes won 3-2 against Muldoons 2 (a match which saw the upset of the week as Muldoons 2's Paddy Magee (1150) defeated William Storey (1366)). Finally, NICS defeated the CS Lewis Witches.

Division 3

  • Ballynafeigh 4 2-3 Ballynafeigh 3
  • QUB 3 1-4 QUB 2
  • Bangor Wannabees 1-4 Andrew's Army

There were no surprises in Division 3 as each club's higher team defeated their respective lower teams.
