19 Jun Regional Chess Qualifier
On a beautiful Tuesday morning last week, Pakuranga College’s A & B Chess teams travelled to nearby Macleans College to compete in the NZ Chess Federation’s East Auckland Secondary Interschool Qualifier.
Both teams played six, hard fought rounds against tough competition. All games were played in the spirit of good sportsmanship and with determination.
Pakuranga A came 3rd overall & Pakuranga B came 8th overall. There were also good individual performances from Ben Agnew, JP Goddard & Samuel Yan, with five respective wins each.
In the end, a solid result for Pakuranga Chess. Full results can be found here.
