Ashfield 2 v Nomads 1   24.10.18

This was pretty close to a perfect team performance .Bob and Maurice played down to an early draw. Neil played a winning coup on move 9 with a Knight capture on f7 splitting open Dave's position. Dave resigned on move 16, facing going 2 pieces in arrears. John missed my mating Bishop check sacrifice on h2 on move 20. Nigel then joined the party by winning a pawn which led quickly to his own mating attack.David outplayed Shane in an endgame to complete the rout. Shane, playing very quickly, may have missed a saving resource.
Both teams were stunned by the result and its speed - done and dusted by 9.45. Hopefully this was not a 1-off and we can play with this punch again. Nomads, who had won their first 2 games of the season, took their defeat well . (Shane , Your baccy and  tin are in our equipment box.)
