This Week's Results & News

In 4th round action this week... Hamilton and West Orange played to 2-2 tie. Newark-McDonalds won by forfeit over Essex County College 1-0 and the Kenilworth Karpovs defeated Staten Island 2.5-1.5.

It was subsequently learned, via Lev Zilbermintz, that ECC "cannot play this semester, due to schoolwork and people being busy". However, Lev later said he was trying to reform the team and hoped it could continue.

To quote GSCL President John Hagerty: Essex County College and Newark's "participation in this group will have to be seriously examined."

Thanks to John H., Jose Fernandez and Ed Selling for the match reports.

Page updates will follow.

Kortchnois Edge Summit 2.5-1.5

Richard Mattern won an opposite-colored Bishops ending against Donnally Miller to break a 1.5-1.5 tie and give the Kenilworth Kortchnois a victory over Summit last night.

Summit's Lou Sturniolo defeated Dr. Geoff McAuliffe to offset a forfeit loss on board 3 but I played cautiously and could only muster a draw.
