The ‘B’ Team pulled off a convincing win against Giffnock ‘C’ playing away at Whitecraigs Tennis and Bowling Club last night. ‘Foggy’ Forgrieve was first to finish, with a neat mating combo after his opponent had self-destructed losing two pieces for two pawns. Groundwater finished next, fending off an ill-advised exchange sacrifice, then launching an invasion down the c-file during which his opponent’s flag fell. Upon seeing this victory, Murray scampered back to board one to agree a draw in a moribund position. This left Smeeton on board one, who doggedly fought back from two pawns down to also gain a half point.
