The full Div.3 results for 4ncl are now up on the website (which the title to this post links to). Here's how the south-west teams fared:
Rd.9: Beat Sussex Smart Controls 4-2
Rd.10: Drew with e2e4.org.uk 2 3-3
Rd.11: Beat Warwickshire Select 2 3.5-2.5
A tremendous last weekend effort, which sadly wasn't quite rewarded. Wessex 2 finished on 15 match points, with 7 wins, 1 draw, 3 losses. This saw them finish 4th= (the final promotion spot.) with Cambridge University 2. Unfortunately the tie- break (number of game points), favoured Cambridge, and so Wessex finished 1 place outside of promotion.
Rd.9: Drew with Iceni 3-3
Rd.10: Lost against The Full Ponty 2.5-3.5
Rd.11: Lost against Nottinghamshire 2 2-4
A poor last weekend for Gloucs. saw them slip quite a way down the table to finish 19th of 32 teams, with a record of 4 wins, 2 draws, 5 losses, 10 match points.
Rd.9: Beat Beauty and the Beasts 4.5-0.5 (B & B lost 1 game point for a default)
Rd.10: Beat Guersney Mates 4-2
Rd.11: Lost against Sussex Smart Controls 2.5-3.5
A decent last weekend for Bristol 2, which sees them finish 20th with a record of 4 wins, 2 draws, 5 losses, 10 match points.
Rd.9: Beat Oxford 3 4.5-1.5
Rd.10: Drew with Beauty and the Beasts 2.5-2.5 (B&B lost 1 game point for a default)
Rd.11: Lost against the Braille Chess Association 1-5
An impressive last weekend for Bristol 3 that caps an excellent season. Despite having the lowest average rating of any team in div.3 this weekend, they've come away with 50% for the 3 matches, and finish in 23rd place. Their record for the season is 3 wins, 2 draws, 6 losses.
