Owner of "Rty." PLAY ONE-TO-Bl'liE IN ATWI 10 DtCl HIY F001BALL much criticized by the S. 0. E. suppoi tcrs. The remainder of the game was fast. North Lethbridge strove hard to break tlie tic as (lid the S.O.E. Nothing happened, however, and the whistle sounded, witii the United ircssing hard at the S.O.E. end. NOTES OF THE GAME The S.O.E. half-back line seemci to he the main stem of the team. Dennett, Holland and Lee played star games. Bennett in pariicu ar played tlie game to a finish and was argely responsible for the checking o the various onslaughts. He was always in the play and held up his end in a line manner.

The deciding game last night between the Sons of 'England and ol special mention. Their work in front of the goal was good. Nes-iiit made some stellar plavs and to (icfc liy him the Uniteds found it dim-cult. ml a tic, and again the score was 1 trt 1. Another game will have to be to decide tbe championship. Last night's game was a cracker-jack. A brand of football was im-tappcrl that has not been equalled in thn citv loagiiG this, season. The ar'gpst" turnout of fans was also irescnt. The main "grand stand was filled and some of the crowd assom-It.ed on the bleachers. Rivalry between the teams somewhat resembled thn old time Callie-S.O.E. competition. Bnf-h teams went onto the field with grim determination to merge out victors, ami the setting was perfect for a good game. Not for a moment did the playing relax. The teams were eHhec taking tho defensive strongly, or. rushing the game in attack with extreme energy. First Half OB the opening of the first half the play was carried to tire S.O.E. goal with a pretty piece c[ combination, and the play centred around the goal for a few minutes. Ncsbitt and Wal-lis began to show up and the ball was soon booted to the North Lethbridge side. The Sons then bogan aggressive and for a time the forwards were pressing Hewitt, who made some brilliant saves. Twice in particular were the odds so against him that scoring seemed certain. Stowe hail T-Icwitt at his mercy but iv some Hukfi he carried the ball to tlie front of the goal, where a scrim ensued only to result in losing the opportunity. Farrant; also had as good a chance hut Hewitt's work again came in aud hopes were lost. S. O. E. Score It was after fifteen minutes of play that Farrant. located the net for t-ho first goal of the game. 'Bennett took the ball away from the front of the S. O. K. goal, when the Uniteds wore rushing, and bv a prettv pass shot the ball to Farrant. Farrant only had the two backs to heat and did this by running away from them with the jail. The rtsli was clear sailing. He easily kicked the ball into the net. The rest of the half was of a give and take nature, rach side m'akirg rushes or defending the goal. Second Half The play at the opening of the second half began to show signs of greater speed and more determination. .North. Lethbridge still smarting under the one goal, lead against them began working hard for a goal. The forward Unu were playing good combination and some fine centres were driven across from the wings, hut the S.O.E. defence was strong. The fans began to concede that the Uniteds were due for a goal and interest was high. A. Gurr Trick The goal came after the Uniteris were forcing the play at ;the S.O.E. goal, get-ting a corner when Parsons in order to save a shot had to put the ball over the bar. Willetts sent in a perfect corner kick, the hall apparently going behind. The goal judge rulrd a goal kick, but Referee Gurr ruled allowing another corner, whereat A. Gurr gave the hall a prettv head into the' goal.. The half had gone for 22 minutes. Referee Gun's ruling in this instance is United forward line played well together. The combination of Camp-lell, Simm, Gurr and Willetts stood out in relief. The S. 0. E. defence, lowever, was stable and unbeatable. The S. 0. E. forwards were strong, too. Farrant played a stellar game. His running was a noticeable feature of his .playing. Holberton and Whytc, United halls, were always in the thick of the play. Holberton''s famous heads and long drives, were features in stopping S. 0. E. rushes. The backs were playing a good game also. Both goalies stopped all shots that were possible. The. two goals scored were earned goals and to stop them was almost an impossibility. The prevalent feeling was that Jas. Gurr refereed one of his best games. Although the S.O.E. arc not inclined to overlook his alleged improper decision in the case of the N.L.U. goal.

E division hatted first, declaring their innings closed after scoring 172 runs for 3 wickets, due principally to a fine not-out innings of 72 by a player named Smith.
