QUB 2 remain 4.5 points behind after beating Ballynafeigh 4 by the same score. The Bangor Webbs remain in last place after a narrow defeat to Fruithill, while there was controversy in the remaining match, a draw between Kelly's Heroes and Muldoons 2, over a draw claim in the board 1 encounter between David Ruben and Steven Eachus. Ruben, with just seconds on the clock, claimed a draw by insufficient material, but the League Controller ruled in favour of Eachus as a help-mate was still theoretically possible.
