LCCC Team Milani 3rd at Tournament - and 2016 LCCC League Marches On

The Milani brothers (left) - the pride of LCCC!
First the big news! LCCC's own Milani brothers played in the 2016 Scholastic Club Championship, held at Oakland University over this past weekend.

Under the Milani Home School - LCCC banner, they finished in 3rd place in their division!

On board 1 - Luigi had a 4 - 1 record (Silver Medal)
On board 2 - Marcello had a 2 - 2 - 1 record
On board 3 - Americo had a 5 - 0 record (Gold Medal)
On board 4 - Luca had a 3 - 1 - 1 record. (Bronze Medal)

This is a fantastic result to post, especially since these boys are heavy into wrestling, baseball and other activities besides playing chess.

Congratulations to Team Milani and we hope to post some games from the tournament here.

Seth Homa (right) helping the next generation - that is what it is all about!
We would also like to give our thanks to FIDE master Seth Homa for taking time to review games with the boys! That had to be a thrill for them. Thank you Seth!

Now on to the league. Tim R of the Tigers won his game to draw the match with the first place 49'ers. This clinches at least a co-championship for the 49'ers.

The standings are as follows:
49'ers - 13 points
Tigers - 9 points
Thunder - 6 points
Owls - 5 points
Flyers - 3 points

Now the 49'ers have played all their regular season rounds and have a bye in week ten.
The Tigers play the Owls and the Thunder play the Flyers.

If the Tigers can defeat the Owls, they will move to only two points away from the 49'ers and could tie for the league title with a win in the position round!

Whooooooo - on the Owls can play spoiler next week?

Owls vs Tigers
Board 1 - Mike N (W) vs Tim R (B)
Board 2 - Don J (B) vs Nick D (W)
Board 3 - Jay S (W) vs Sam T (B)

Thunder vs Flyers
Board 4 - Gene M (W) vs Vince V (B)
Board 5 - Luke S (B) vs John R (W)
Board 6 - Zach R (W) vs Dan W (B)

Can the Tigers win two straight matches to tie for the title?  Stop by LCCC Monday and find out!
