Ballynafeigh 3 easily beat Muldoons 2 to extend their lead in Division 2. The highlight was Daniil Zelenchuk's win over Martin Donaghy, but credit is due to John Wood and Paddy Maguire who held players rated around 300 points higher to earn the Corporation Square side's point. There was more good news for the leaders the following night as nearest rivals QUB 2 were beaten by a strong Kelly's Heroes side, despite the best efforts of Alan York (1247), who beat Craig Stevenson (1343), and Samuel Ngieng and Bernard McCaughey who drew with higher-rated opposition. Bangor Webbs are off the bottom of the table as they beat Ballynafeigh 4, while Civil Service and Fruithill went to a draw.
