The Hastings Secondary College - Port Macquarie Campus Chess Team competed in Round Two of the NSW Country Schools Chess Competition on Thursday. Although it was a bit different competing online, the team members were enthusiastic about finally being able to continue the competition. Unfortunately our opponents St Columba Anglican School, the reigning zone champions, were victorious in all four games. Like Round 1, Marina Lay played the longest game and put up a spirited defence for almost twenty minutes before being forced into check mate. The team members are looking forward to playing Round 3 next term, hopefully face-to-face with the opposition instead of online. Well done to Tylah Lay, Marina Lay, Zale Donovan and Drew DeSilva.
