The two leaders in the Schools Championship
both had tough matches yesterday. Israel defeated Germany
19-11 while Poland beat Denmark 18-12, two good results.
That allowed Israel to move into the lead on their own, 1 VP ahead
of Poland. Norway scored a maximum 25 against Ireland to
move closer in third place. Also scoring 25s were The Netherlands
and Sweden, the former against Italy, who had been
lying fourth going into the match.
In the Juniors, leaders Italy had
a Bye, allowing France and Denmark to move a little
closer in second and third places. France beat Norway
22-10 (there was a fouled board) and Denmark scored 25 against
Scotland. None of the rest of the chasing pack managed a
significant win, however, so Italy can be reasonably happy
with the way things went in their absence.
