Surprise move

 

As the Sacred Heart School cafeteria buzzes with excitement Tuesday after school, Kevin Geary is a bit surprised with Sam Layton’s move placing his bishop deep in Kevin’s territory during the first round of the Catholic Schools Week chess tournament. The double-elimination tournament is expected to take two afternoons to come up with a champion. Geary’s mustache is part of Mr. Freese Day, to honor the principal. A special scoring system was found so the games could be limited to 20 minutes. If a checkmate does not determine a winner, this system is used. (Star photo by Steve Allison)
