Oslo Trolls Defeat Armenia Eagles in Comeback Victory


Oslo Trolls defeat the Armenia Eagles 9-7. After round one, it looked as if the Trolls were already out of it. The Eagles pummeled them for an early 3.5-0.5 lead. Round one included a shocker; the Eagles' board four CM Artak Manukyan defeated the Trolls' board one IM Lars Oskar Hauge in the biggest upset of the match.

However, the Trolls would not go away easily, and by the next round, they were already fighting back. Board three of the Trolls, FM Benjamin Haldorsen, took down board one of the Eagles, GM Kirill Shevchenko, with the black pieces.
