Schools chess ends in tie
THE 2015 Massy United Insurance Under-13 Inter-Schools Chess Tournament finished in an exciting two-way tie between Queen’s College and Harrison College ‘A’, with each on 32 points on the final day at The St Michael School last weekend.
With Queen’s College already sitting on their final 32 points total, it came down to Harrison College’s final game, which they needed to win by a 10-0 margin to at least grab a share of the title.
The team of Pritika Kandamaran, Tor Burrowes, Joshua Desir, Paul Mondesir and Zerab Yaicob won all their games and claimed the joint top spot.
Queen’s College’s Shane Skinner, Azari Gittens, Aaron Haynes, Zachary Brathwaite and Jonathan Rowe did themselves proud, returning to their winning ways after a long drought. (PR/EZS)
