The League may have finished but Saxmundham have still a few games to play in the U1800 Cup. On Tuesday Sax played host to top-of-the-table Bury, who out-graded us on every board. The 1½ – 2½ defeat was not surprising but a bit closer than last time. Dominic was first to finish with a draw on Board 2 but then Lee tragically blundered away a won ending on 4. Mike had a good win on top board (revenge for his loss in the first leg) which left Matthew, who fought long and hard, but ultimately in vain, to save the match.
