Last Round Results

The last rounds took place in ALSAA again this year, with both of our sides having last round victories

Heidenfeld Trophy side won 5.5-1.5 in the final round, wins for Michael, John, Dario, draws for Kevin and Valentin, and a Draw for Peter who substituted for the side at late notice. After a poor 1st half of the season the team rallied and finished 5th in the league.

Our Ennis Shield side cemented their place in the division, with a 5 – 1 win, with wins for Fergal, Tony, Tom and Mick, and draws for Noel and John.

Final Round of the Leinster Leagues

LCU Final Round in ALSAA, April 23rd.

After a tough season sadly our Armstrong Cup side was relegated. Going into the last round versus Bray we needed “snookers”. A loss 5-3 was no disgrace considering how highly rated they were, wins for Ravshan and Conor, as well as draws from Art and Marc was an honourable performance.

Well done to our Heidenfeld Trophy side who rallied in the last few rounds winning and picking up points, and despite a loss in the Last round their status was preserved. So next year we should have two Heidenfeld sides.

Some Recent Results

The Armstrong had a couple of bad results recently, losing 7-1 to Dublin, (Draws for art and John) and 7-1 to Gonzaga (Draws for Ravshan and super sub Michael), both very strong sides. We also had a close game against Dun Laoghaire drawing 4-4 unfortunately defaulting on board 8 meant we lost 4-3. We need good results in our final three games.

Heidenfeld had a tough match against a strong Curragh side losing 6.5-1.5 (draws for Tom Tony and John, and an close game against Elm Mount (who were higher rated on every board) losing 4.5-3.5 (excellent wins for Michael and John).

Our BEA Cup side had a narrow win 3-2 v Drogheda, and a lose 3.5-1.5 against a much higher rated Dublin University (Trinity) side.
