QUB go top after Civil Service rout

(B&D League 2018/19 Week 2) QUB 1 replace Civil Service at the top of Division 1 after convincingly beating the Stormont side.

Division 1

  • Ballynafeigh 1 3-2 Kelly's Heroes
  • QUB 1 4-1 Civil Service
  • Strand 1 3-2 Fruithill Hawks

 

QUB 1 lead Division 1 after beating Civil Service 4-1. Stephen Rush, Sergio Esteve Sanchez, Callum Ormerod and Cathan Gormley all won to ensure the bonus points; David Jackson was the sole point-scorer for the visitors. Strand 1 are just behind them after a closely-fought win over the Fruithill Hawks. Daniil Zelenchuk's win over John Cairns was decisive as the other four games were drawn. Ballynafeigh 1 defeated Kelly's Heroes, but will be somewhat disappointed with the 3-2 result. Steve Scannell and Karina Kruk both won, but David Houston and Ian Woodfield were both held to draws by Gareth Annesley and John McKenna respectively and Damien Cunningham was beaten by John Bryars.

Division 2

  • QUB 2 3-2 The B Team
  • Bangor 1 1-4 Northern Lights
  • Strand 2 4-1 Fruithill Falcons

 

Northern Lights secured a big win over Bangor 1 to take the lead in Division 1 thanks to wins from Nicholas Pilkiewicz, Stephen Wood and Martin Donaghy. QUB 2 are right behind them after beating The B Team. Clark Rodriguez, Daniel Diaz-Roncero Gonzalez and Rian Mellotte (in the upset of the week, the 1171-rated Mellotte beat Abraham Lorber (1434)) won for the home side while Neil Green and Craig Stevenson won for The B Team. Strand 2 beat the Fruithill Falcons in the week's other match.

Division 3

  • Fruithill Ravens 2.5-2.5 Strand 4
  • Ballynafeigh 4 1.5-3.5 Ballynafeigh 3
  • Bangor 2 4-1 Strand 3

 

Bangor 2 are the clear leaders of Division 3 after a comfortable win over Strand 3. Jonny Brown, Gary Johnston, Samuel Todd and Ben Toogood all won for the home team, with Taufik Kamal spoiling the whitewash by defeating Owen Wilson. Ballynafeigh 3 defeated Ballynafeigh 4 with wins from Tyrone Winter, Paul Anderson and James Shaw, while Andy Boal (817) did well to beat Pawel Otocki (990) and David Seaby drew with James Barbour. In the week's other match, the Fruithill Ravens drew with Strand 4.
