Reivers v Jesmond Wasps

This match was played at Corbridge on Tuesday Feb 24th, with the following line-up:
1. Derek Blair (135) v Rohan Rawat (91)
2. Phil Taylor (115) v Weiming Xu (90)
3. Bruce Reed (106) v Jamie McIntosh (65)
4. Dave Foster jr (84) v Simon McIntosh (u)
5. Damian Rudge (65) v Default
Unfortunately, Jesmond arrived without their top board, so all their players moved up one board, leaving Damian without a game but with a point. 1-0
Derek had a comfortable win, Rohan dropping a piece early on and allowing Derek to control the game. 2-0
Phil had his work cut out and his offer of a draw when there were only equal pawns and kings on the board was eventually accepted. 2.5- 0.5
Dave had a disaster and was caught, I believe, by a back-rank mate. 2.5-1.5
Bruce had to work quite hard for what eventually proved a clear-cut win. 3.5-1.5
So the Reivers picked up two more points and moved into the top half of the table. Where will this meteoric rise take them?
