The second half of the season started well for our Armstrong team scoring an impressive 6.5-1.5 win over Bray/Greystrones. So, after six rounds our team lies 6th with a 1.5 lead over Kilkenny in 7th. With 5 rounds remaining, we have to play 2 teams above us and 3 teams currently below.
After a difficult start our Heidenfeld team pulled out a couple of wins to complete the round against a strong Curragh team with a 4.5-3.5 loss. Most likely this will leave our team in 5th or 6th when all the 6th round results are counted.
In the Ennis our A team went down 2.5-3.5 to table-toppers, Gonzaga. A good result considering the opposition outrated us by about 200 points per board. After round 6 our guys will lie between 2nd and 4th and still in touch with the top of the table.
Meanwhile, our Ennis B team lost 4-2 to Skerries where all the boards produced decisive results in line with rating. This leaves our guys mid table.
There are no league matches scheduled for this week.
