"They're already clashing on either side of the [chess/go/shogi/whatever] board."
More colloquially, I'd imagine, is "They've already started the match."

はさんで te-form of 挟む which means to hold something in between something.
so 盤を挟む means to sit on each side of the board/have a board between them
In the following sentence, you marked a bit wrong.
the U, is supposed to be with もう =already
ぶつかり合う = clash together
So it's just like AJBryant said.
