Amsterdam Mosquitoes Relegate Reykjavik Puffins

Mar 7, 2018, 3:38 PM |

The Reykjavik Puffins, one of the league's fan favorites, a team with lots of camaraderie and spirit, were relegated by the Amsterdam Mosquitoes. The Puffins will have a chance to qualify again in the 2019 qualifier, but for now the league bids them a sad adieu.

For the Mosquitoes, the 2018 season finished with another demonstration of what this team is capable of. They scored an impressive 11.5 points, reaching a game point total that was the second highest in the division this season. When their best lineups were playing, the Mosquitoes seemed one of the best teams in the division. Unfortunately, a few weeks in which the Mosquitoes were not able to field their best lineups cost them a chance at the playoffs this season.

The Mosquitoes scored 3.5/4 from both boards two and three in this match. Here is one of those great wins from GM Jan Smeets.
