Captains Comment

Ealing A took revenge for last week's heavy cup defeat to Harrow A with a good win that consolidates our position at the top of the Hillingdon League.

Reinforcements at the top of the order had the desired effect delivering wins on the top two boards. Phil’s opponent resigned (perhaps prematurely) on losing a pawn in a Q and R endgame. John and Joao got draws in games which had their up and downs, and I got a draw with my opponent better but very short of time.

Patryk was the last to finish in an interesting endgame with pawns and minor pieces, where he managed to pawn first.

Next game is the return fixture in early April.
