Poole A 3.5 Dorchester A 0.5, Dorchester B 2 Wimborne B 2, County Div 1; Poole close in on County Championship

15 Mar. Poole A moved 5 points clear at the top of County Div 1 with this convincing win. The top 3 boards were won by the home team with a draw on board 4 between Ciprian Stanciu (Poole) and Julian Cherryson. Poole fielded a very strong team, out grading Dorchester by more than 20 points a board, except on board one where 191 graded Mike Waddington lost to Oscar Garcia 187. Poole B are challenging for the County Div 3 title and the club also has aspirations in the B&DCL, where, for example their A team lead Div 1, but that league is very close and exciting and final outcome unclear. Meanwhile on the same evening, but at the Colliton Club, Dorchester B & Wimborne A took a point each from their match. 2 games were drawn but Mark Potter won for Dorchester on board 2 and Stephen Appleby scored a point for Wimborne on board 3
