London League win against the division table toppers Imperial

Tuesday 20 Feb

Ilford had a great result in winning against table topping Imperial. Imperial were missing a couple of top board players and Ilford were strong, but this is the first time Imperial have lost over the board this season, their only other loss was a defaulted match. Jason,  Julian and Kevin gave early points but from there on it was a slow grind to the win with David taking the team over the line with a draw after a marathon 98 moves, mainly in a queen, pawn and king versus queen and king endgame that he tried very hard to win.
