Sanlam has continued to be a threat to D’Mark’s hold onto the title after they won both their weekend encounters to stay at the top of the National Chess League table.

Sanlam’s lead player Harold Wanyama beat City’s Haruna Nsubuga on board one as his colleague Christine Namaganda also beat Victoria Nakirwadde to pick the team’s second win in round 19 at Hotel Africana.

Wanyama’s other teammates Mathias Ssonko, Rajab Kamoga and Simon Gonza fell to hard fought draws against City’s Farouk Fauza, Daniel
Baagadde and Aaron Kanaabi respectively to pick their first victory on Sunday.

Wanyama later led the Sanlam side to another victory in round 20 after walloping Barclays Chess Club 4-1 to extend their stay at the top of the table with 57 points in 20 league games.

Defending champions D’Mark beat Bank of Uganda 4-1 before walloping newcomers Bunamwaya 5-0 to stay in close chase also with 57 point in 19 games.
