The Stonehaven vs Bon Accord Knights fixture in the North East Scotland Chess League was played on Wednesday 19th November. The result was a victory for the knights as follows:
|Stonehaven||Bon Accord Knights|
|1||B||Keith Emery||1684||0||1||Duncan Harwood||1988|
|2||W||Bruce Harrold||1672||1||0||Neil Irving||1644|
|3||B||Pat Coffield||1452||0.5||0.5||Ricky Telford||1639|
|4||W||David Bridges||1235||0||1||Mark Barclay||1457|
Mark converted an extra exchange to be the first to finish. Duncan managed to strand his opponent’s king in the centre of the board, and was then able to fork his rooks. I blundered a rook while trying to defend a bad position in time trouble. Ricky secured the points when his opponent offered a draw in a complicated looking queen and knight ending.
