Victory for ASSU III!

3-1 Victory for ASSU III as expected if  you only look at the  rating difference between the teams.But the truth is that two of the games was more of a struggle than you might first expect Both Peder Axensten and Tintin Burman made it difficult  for the ASSU players to score the full point but Viktor Alvarsson and Lars Frängsmyr was Victorius in the end.

Jonas Jonsson the team captain of ASSU III did win both his own game and also the match so it was a good day for ASSU III.
