Mansfield 1 v Ashfield 2     1.2.16

The absence of Jim Burnett gave us a chance. We out-scored  them on the bottom 2 boards as Stan drew with Brian Oldham  and Alan scored a good win against George Wagenbach. Jerry and myself both had promising positions but fell behind on time.Jerry had to give best to Jon Tait. The decisive game was my game v Chris Cantrill. I played a half -decent game but Chris developed a heavy piece attack on an open h-file,  scary with my King  on g1. I did have a Bishop on g2, and there was a defence, pointed out by Chris, which I should have found.  I crumbled. Bob had a good draw against Ken Morrison.   Result  3-2
