Yorkshire v Lancashire, NCCU Open, U160 and U-120

 

Roses matches in the NCCU county championships, at Open, U-160 and U-120 levels, took place on Sunday 03/02/2019, at the Bradford Latvian Club, 5 Clifton Villas, Bradford, from 1.00 to 6.00 p.m.  The U-140 and U-100 teams had met in Bury, on 02/12/2018, when Lancashire was successful at in both matches (see here for details).

 

On this occasion, Yorkshire won all three matches, suggesting the two counties are roughly evenly matched, but that having home venue is a significant advantage.  (See lower down for U-160 and U-120 match results.)

Grades are ECF January 2019.

In view of recent encounters (e. g. last ECF County Finals) involving matches drawn on game points and then won by Lancashire on board count, Yorkshire's win in the Open was perhaps “easier” than expected.  Grades forecast a 6-6 draw, but Yorkshire's top 4 boards, though all slightly out-graded, all scored draws, while on the lower boards, Yorkshire capitalised better on their slight grading edge, winning 4, drawing 3 and losing only one, giving a fairly comfortable 7˝-4˝ win.

Rupert Jones (U-160 captain) comments as follows.

A fantastic result on Sunday; very well played Everyone.  No one lost a game.  Richard Bowman put us 1-0 up early by beating their captain, and then with 9 draws we led 1-0!  Then Brian Coop on board 1, continuing his good run, brings the bacon home & Paul on board 2 increases the gap.
