The Kenilworth Chess Club Niners tied for 1st among U1900 teams at the U.S. Amateur Team East tournament in Parsippany this past weekend, duplicating their 2013 result.
The team lost just 4 games out of the 24 they played (+11-4=9) & didn't suffer a single defeat in the last 3 rounds (+6-0=6).

Life Master Mark Kernighan led the way on board 1 by drawing GM Larry Kauffman in the opening round and winning his last 5 games. 3rd board Greg Tomkovich (3.5/6) and alternate Dan Komunicky (1/1) also turned-in plus scores.

2nd board John Moldovan struggled in rounds 3-5 but nicked FM Allan Savage for a draw on Saturday afternoon and finished at 50% (3/6). 4th board Geoff McAuliffe also finished with an even score (2.5/5).

We should also mention that Steve Stoyko & Scott Massey's team tied for 4th overall, with 5.0/6.
