Chess – Leinster School Chess League
Both our Senior and Junior squads were away to Gonzaga in their opening match in the Leinster School Chess League.
The Junior team played to the best of their ability but they were up against a very experienced team and lost 4-1 to Gonzaga B with Sean O’Connor winning his game.
Team: Sean O’Connor, Patrick Curley, Matthew Collins, John Duffy and Jamie Blackburn (all 2nd Year)
The Senior team sadly succumbed by the same score, 4-1 with Michael McDonald winning his match.
Team: Patrick Hassett and Joseph Egibefoh (both 6th Year), Michael McDonald and Fergus Woods (both 5th Year), and John Cawley (3rd Year)
I thank Ms Groves for her organisation of the team
