Blue 1 - Grim 0
 
After an unusual Sicilian opening (for us), Grim hangs a bishop, I queen a pawn for an uneven trade, and we grind out the finish.

Not that the Sicilian is unusual for us (I play it often against Blue) but the way it progressed was certainly non-standard.
 
And, of course, hanging the bishop didn't help. :) Blue played a solid game after that, so there was no coming back.
