Brad Rosen sends a mobile message from the front lines:
Round 7 just kicked off with Niles North facing off against Hinsdale Central. To get there, Hinsdale Central beat Whitney Young in a wild scramble at the end.  Aakash [Meduri] held Sam [Schmakel] to a draw on board 1 and edged out the Dolphins 35-33. Meanwhile, Niles North eked one out against Stevenson: David Paykin won a dead lost position on board 3 against Matthew Wang with drama and panache . And I do mean drama. A short respite and then they were back at it again... a bit of a fight club, warriors, cage match feel down here at the big dance.

At 7-0, Prospect's Robert Moskwa was top medalist on 1st Board, beating Matt Wilber and Eric Rosen on tie-break points. 1st Round win over Max Zinski made the difference.
