Dorchester B 2 Poole A 2, County Div 1; Dorchester B hold the leaders & keep title race open

26 Apr. Dorchester B have been remarkably consistent this season in the highly challenging County Div 1 and, in fact, have only lost 1 match so far. In this encounter, they held the title favourites and ensured it will go down to the last match when Poole A host Wimborne A on 10 May. A draw will be sufficient for the Poole team, but a win by Wimborne will make them champions. Such a close finish seemed most unlikely a few matches back.  Last night Poole won on the top boards through Michael Duggan & John Weatherlake, but Dorchester were successful on boards 3 & 4 through Mark Potter & David Hardie. As Poole’s Eric Sachs rightly says “….nicely set up for the final match”. What a finish to the season and well done to Dorchester B for their part in making this possible
