The match between Newmachar and the Bon Accord Knights took place at Newmachar primary school on Tuesday 17th November.
The first game to be decided was on board 1 where in a Kings Indian defence Neil Irving found a tactic that won two pieces for a rook and left him with a knight on e6 dominating the position. At about the same time the board 4 encounter finished with Ayo Suberu managing to take advantage of his opponents neglected development, winning several pawns and eventually an exchange. On board 3 in a Dragon Sicilian Dave Smith concluded a strong attack by winning a piece. This left the board 2 encounter where Ricky Telford concluded the match by forcing a Queen exchange leading to a knight ending with two extra pawns.
