Match Report: University A vs Horfield A (14 October): Students too good.

For second night in a row the stronger team demonstrated that stronger teams are stronger because they are stronger. 

We were out-gunned in particular on boards 4-6 and went 3-0 down. James had a promising attack but a rook sac turned out to be unsound. We were equal on the top three boards but overall the score-line reflects the difference in depth between the teams. A slight surprise University put their weakest player on board 1; certainly it made it even harder for us. 

So a week of three matches; one draw and two loses. Onwards and upwards I guess!
