Inverell High's Chess team played Emmaville in the second round of the North West Country Schools chess teams competition on Tuesday 20th May. All four boards won, with Ben Ellis (Yr 8) on Board 3 and Axel Robinson (Yr 7) on Board 4 winning quite quickly. Taine Riley, (Yr 8) on Board 2, had a long hard match before defeating his opponent. Warwick Hodkinson, (Yr 10) played Board 1. After gaining a material advantage he had a very difficult end game to avoid a stalemate. The boys are to be commended for their focus, patience and good sportsmanship.
