Dunfermline 3.5 - 1.5 Cumbernauld 8/4/15

Dunfermline 3.5 - 1.5 Cumbernauld

  1. I Robertson 1/2 - 1/2 M Monaghan
  2. J Webster 1/2 - 1/2 R Stirrat
  3. S Brisbane 1/2 -1/2 G Thomson
  4. B O’Rourke 1- 0 S Monaghan
  5. win by default 1-0 loss by default

Sadly a late call-off left Cumbernauld short-handed.  Glynis now has 2/2 default wins after a similar situation against Cumbernauld in the KO a few weeks previously.  As for the games played it was a weakened and tired Dunfermline team who were rather gifted the points after Bryan grabbed an early piece and was always winning thereafter despite trying to keep Steven in the game for longer than he should have!  Then a surprising draw offer from George on board 4 was gladly accepted. George thought the position was a bit too blocked to make progress in the allegro finish but on further reflection it seems he was winning .  Ralph considered playing on after a fairly equal position arose following middle game exchanges but accepted a repetition.  On top board Ian won queen for rook and knight but Mark was able to set up a blockade where progress was problematic in the time left and a draw was agreed.
