Board 1, Braunstone 4 v Wigston 5, 12/01/

All moves in 80 minutes.

No real idea how I managed to lose this one - other than a repeat of the time pressure of some previous games.  I had an overwhelming position from the opening, but got about 25 minutes behind on the clock.  Once it liquidated into a dead draw, with me having only 10 minutes or so to play all my moves, I missed a blunder which would have won me a piece.  I don't think I missed any draws by repetition, but I haven't double checked. 

In the end, with only seconds to play, I let his bishop in to clear up my pawns.  Anyway, the team won!
