Rookie on the clash of the league leaders

This week, with 5 games to go, the big two in the league met a point apart and the leading team smashed the second team by 6.5-0.5 at home, with a draw on top board and four wins on the other boards, to lead the division by 7 points - no, not the division one clash between RVH Hawks and QUB, but the division two clash between Malone (now on 53 from 10 games) and Bombardier (on 46 from 10 games) last night at Fisherwick Chess Club! What a coincidence! However, with Bombardier having a much easier finish to the league than Malone, the title is still up for grabs, with the two Bangor teams not totally out of it.

Newman left his “mark” on the overall result with a draw on board one. McNaughten scored ”naught on” board two. Ferris ”wheeled” out all his pieces to beat McConaghy on board three, Bookless was “clueless” on board four, while on board five, McKittrick’s “tricks” over the board failed to work, as his opponent exploited his advantage to the “max” in the battle of the mc’s!

It's very good to see Rookie with a forum to entertain us again with his much-enjojed wise-cracks.
I await with anticipation his return to top form!
