Team BC fought a tremendous battle against Team Washington on Saturday in Bellevue. When the first round was closing in which Team Washington winning 13 games against Team BC 's 9 wins, Team BC pulled a miracle by winning the last 4 games, and tied with Team Washing in this round. Even Team Washington captain admitted it was a big surprise, considering Team Washington appears to have significant rating advantage across most of the grades. 


The second round started with exciting staggering wins on each side, then perhaps the fatigue of traveling crept up on the players particularly the younger ones. We ended up losing to Team Washington 10 points against their 16 with the final score of 23 to 29. 


I am, however, very proud of Team BC's performance against one of the strongest Team Washington line up. Not all the highest rated players from BC were able to attend this match, yet we had achieved an impressive result. Next year we will face Team Washington with confidence and will beat them in our hometown. 

Many thanks to all Team BC members for their amazing performance, and their parents' wonderful support.  Also, many thanks to our host, Chess4Life, for organizing this event.
