Nomads B Vs SASCA B

Nomads B team Welcomed SASCA B on Tuesday 17th, it was our 1st league game since the Christmas break, and with both both teams being slightly weaker than normal due to other commitments and player restrictions, the match promised to be a closely fought contest. Nomads were already 1-0 in front before play even began, but the other five games were not so easy, Ian lost in a closely fought contest, Arjun won in his usual slow, but calculating style, Ken drew his game, Steve, although a piece up, but playing against 2 passed pawns managed a draw with his opponent making the drawing move just a slit second before his flag fell, unlucky Steve!!!! Keith the captain and reluctantly playing showed no mercy to his opponent, making sure to maximise any and all mistakes.
