W. Orange-Summit Synopsis

Last night's match started early (20 minutes ahead of schedule) and so did the blunders. In fact, 3 of the games were so-marred and done within 90 minutes of play.

West Orange, making its initial GSCL road trip, got on the board first when Victor Rosas beat John Moldovan, who overlooked looming back rank troubles.

Black to win

Summit evened the score at 1 on Don Varneckas's win over Robert Lynn, who allowed a shot and then hung his Q.

White to win

However, the visiting team moved ahead shortly thereafter as Jose Fernandez matched Rosas's feat and exploited Simon Thomson's lack of luft.

White to win

Donnally Miller had a chance to give the hosts a tie but, after overcoming a lost position, he misplayed a winning pawn ending and had to make peace with Bryan Cohen.

Black to win

West Orange raised its record to 1-0-1 and climbed into a 3rd place tie. Summit fell to 1-2 and 6th in the standings.
