Munster League rounds 7&8

Due to Storm Dennis, Tralee were unable to travel and our games for round 5&6 were postponed. These games will be replayed at a later date in Limerick.
This Sunday we had 2 tough games against Ennis B and Cork B.
Players were David Andreu, Diego Rodriguez, Andrew Finnerty, James Blackwell and Zoran Dragic

We finished with a score of 4 – 1 against Ennis B, where the standout game was Diego winning in only 13 moves.
We then played a strong Cork B team getting a score of 3.5 – 1.5 with a lot of the games going down to the wire.

These two wins and some fortunate results from other matches, mean that we are in a good position to win Div 2 of the Munster League if we can beat Charleville in the next round on the 19th of April.
Well done to Andrew Finnerty in particular for winning both games against higher rated opponents!
