On paper, the home team were comfortable winners, and so the score might suggest, but, as they say about football, the game isn't played on paper, and the score

The newly minted East Budleigh club hosted our Peter Rooke Knockout match last Saturday.

Exeter 3½-4½ Newton Abbot Peter Rooke Cup Semi-Final 28th Jan 2017

The visitors took an early lead when, on bottom board, Brian's extra
piece got sidetracked and the opposition's pawns rolled unstoppably
forward. (0-1)

It looked like we would be two down when Will lost a pawn early on,
but, with his opponent focussing on the Queen's-side, he picked up a piece
and put together some decisive threats on the other wing. (1-1)

Always-enterprising Chris Lowe did his best to upset Trefor's solid
build-up, but after some tense manoeuvres, was happy to agree a draw
when White refused to be distracted. (1½-1½)
