LA SALETTE  vs. BISMARCK

December 6, 2018

The match against Bismarck began with a quick loss from Cook, but a win from Andrews shortly after gave the team a slight lead. Babic and Ian Somdahl lost in quick succession, leaving the Lions in a perilous situation. Captain Chris Weid managed to win his game, to the great joy of the team, leaving the outcome of the match solely in Finnley Somdahl's hands. This turned out well for he defeated his opponent and the Lions won the first match.

The second match began with a quick win, this time, from Cook, followed by a draw from Andrews. Babic and Ian Somdahl then proceeded to lose both of their games, resulting in a big lead for Bismarck. Weid was unable to win his game, so despite a win from Finnley, the Lions lost the second match, earning them 2nd in the conference for the third year in a row.

LA SALETTE VS. MATTOON

November 8, 2018

The match started off well with a relatively quick win from the third board, Nicholas Andrews. This win was followed by 2 more from fourth and fifth board, Ian Somdahl and Thomas Cook, putting the Lions ahead by quite a bit. Unfortunately, captain Chris Wied and second board  Nicholas Babic lost, however, with a win from the sixth board, Finnley Somdahl, the Lions pulled ahead and won the first match, 34-24.

The second match began with another quick win from Andrews, which was followed shortly after by a win from Cook. Ian Somdahl won his second game as well, due to a crushing move which his opponent missed. Babic proved victorious after refusing a draw offered earlier in the game. Wied drew his second game, securing the already definite second win. Finnley Somdahl, after an agonizingly long endgame, defeated the opposition and the Lions conquered again, 51.5 to 6.5.
