        5 – 3      

There was an extraordinary game on board 2, where Zygis Jakubauskas resigned after around 10 moves when under the mistaken impression that he was about to be mated. Mel on board one held off David Fitzsimons to score a second great draw. Again, our middle boards of Killian, Darren, and DJ proved to be very strong. Killian is now on 8/9 for the season. Overall, a 5-3 win is a very good performance against the reigning champions, but not enough to push Kilkenny at the top, who are up on Saturday week (Feb 19th).
