School House surged into an early lead and never looked to be in any danger. Milo Welch led the way on Board One with 4 excellent victories including a win against his sister in the final round. Milo was well supported by Jiwan Rana and Conner Rourke-Davies who were also unbeaten. Tom Ashton won 3 of his 4 games to give School House an emphatic victory.
The Orchard Quartet of Aaron Lau, Slava Zakharov, Neil Wang and Daniel Cummings each recorded 3 wins to secure the runner-up spot for Orchard House.
Mrs Goodrich’s cunning coaching reaped the benefit as the de Winton girls picked up a number of ‘Fool’s Mate’ victories to boost their total score and claim the bronze medals.
