13/10/15 University 1 v Ashfield 2. 
A promising start was undone by a spirited University fight-back. At 9.30 we led 2-1, draws for Stan, playing very solidly this year and Bob against Andrew Walker, and  a quick win from me. With the two boards in play looking fine, I nipped for a celebratory drink, tempting the fates to turn against us. Alan's opponent gradually seized control of the board and Darren Lee built up strong endgame pressure against Jerry. Jerry had just about weathered this when his flag fell. He may have missed the saving resource of stopping clocks and making the claim that the game could not be won by normal means.A competitive team performance from us ended on the night with an unlikely University win.
Result 3-2
