Yesterday’s final match was tense and lasted for an hour between Matthew (S1) and Cameron (S5). Matthew had made his way to the final without losing one single game, but he knew that even if he lost to Cameron, he would have a second chance to beat him in a second final next week. A lot of the chess club members attended to support their friends. Miss Burns and Miss McDonald were joined by Mr Inglis and Mr Fisher to watch the match. Congratulations to Cameron who won the match when he won Matthew’s queen. Next week, the FINAL final game takes place between the same two players to decide who is the top player in Williamwood 2018!
