17 Nov Chess Club Challenges
CIS played the third and fourth games of the season in the CCC Schools Challenge on Saturday. A comfortable 4-2 win over Kings Cambridge D team was followed by a more testing assignment against Perse Prep A, who won the title 3 years ago. Their strength and experience told as we were beaten 5-1, though Rebecca on Board 1 scored a great opportunistic victory by spotting a back rack checkmate that her opponent had overlooked. Congratulations to Laila and David who played their first ever games for the school.
All the children showed high standards of behaviour and sportsmanship and should be congratulated for their efforts on Saturday. The next date will be December 2nd, and CIS are paired against St Bede’s in the first round of matches.
