Off to a good start…

The league got underway with wins for 2 out of the 3 teams.

Porthcawl narrowly lost to the Bridgend Central Rockets picking up 2/3 points on the top 3 boards but unfortunately  losses on 4 and 5 meant the team came away loosing 3-2.

Bridgend A picked up a very convincing win against the Nelson Griffins picking up all 5 points.

Bridgend B played away to the North Cardiff Panthers. Our two newest members, Andrew and Simon, played in their first league game with the club but unfortunately lost in two very close games. However, wins on the other three boards meant a 3-2 victory to the away team.
