Tills 'under the capable management of Mr. uieorga Wiin- IcHi-1, they have Improved out of and siirprlHed .the, fans and their opponents by, their displays. CurloUH to relate, the itclim is lai'Kely intidc up of men who in past SPJIKOIIS iiuvc'playcit for othei; of the Iwo senior toumn of Iho city, it lid in unother resptict the club Is far lhat no "birth" qualification in neecssiiry to iHeguro a plucc on the loam, and h't'iica wo see Knjf- lialnnati, Scotchman, ayo, and'even native horn Canuck strlvingr together and mum to keep his club.on the, topmost rung: of the league ladder. Another interesting, fact In connection, with {the Overscan' club Is that they have gone1 through the season HO far with the same eleven players with whom thi-y started on May 21st. when they-drew; one'ttll with tho Caledonians. This shows rare judgment on the part of the selection'committee; rind after witnessing their rticenl performance against'the Scotchmen, I. see why, barring ac- cidents, the Ovurscns should riot finish' the leagufl; (ourney'with tho same men who have served them so welt up to the present. 4, On Tuesday night the wind was blowing rather strongly as it sometimes does In Lethbrftige, and the Overseas were fortunate enough to win the toss, and nat- uniHy chose to take advantage o'f the elements. In'a-very short time they had registered the two goals by which tho match was won. Joyce', who is playing ex- ceedingly good football this season, was responsible for the first, and Bembridge notched the After that the Overseas took It comparatively easy, and secm- L-d to concentrate their efforts on kteplng the Callies out, which towards the end of the first Ttalf, even with the wind in their favor, ivas no easy tank. During this portion of the game the Scotchmen1, I thought, put up some, splendid football, but u. stubborn defence resisted all their-attempts ,to score. With the wind In their favor, It was the general'Impression among the spec-' taturs lhat the Cnlllcs would run out easy winners, but the second half bad not been long begun before it was seen lhat the Overseas had simply been reserving themsehcs foi tins gieat t-isk of keeping ihilr fortiess secure from the ittaikb of the And not onlv did thej do that out un more tlun one occasion during this period, they had the audacity to invade Mclntyr'e's preserve, and it took all [lint veteran's Ingenuity; to Iteep them out. The Callles, of course, had the bulk )f the play in the second half, and but for a brilliant display 6t defensive work, on the part "Sumner, Pattt-rson and Home, must have scored. ''Simmer, especially was in great form, and saved time, after time in marvellous fashion. Psrtterscn too, excelled himself In this and gave his-best exhibition of the season. Cauld- well was particularly good In'the'half'back line, and held his .opposing wing com- pletely in check. Hnlkerson had a couple of youngsters to look after in Knight and Llnnlng, but they, seldom go L away though when they did. ihey were generally dangerous, and gave Sumner some hot ones to negotiate. Mullen played his usual useful game, and managed; to shadow'the opposing centre effectively, Ot the forwards, Thompson was-, the star. In JJie second half especially he played brilliant football and got the best of several occasions. Brennan added to his reputation as an effective, centre-forward'and Freddie. Simm who captains the leom, .played well-up to form. Joyce and Beinbrldge, the outside wing men, .showed up well, and led thelopposing half backs a merry dance. The Callies introduced Xess, ,a new, man, as half back, and he certainly Justified his selection. He plays the game .'Jioro'uglily and is a great "tryen" He was a thorn in the ilesb of his opposing wing and kept :lifE-forwards well supplied with opportunities of which they were not slow, to take advantage.
