The shots of the winning eleven were given more accu- they glowing chance which passed the goal rate direction generally .and carried all kinds of steam. There was hardly a man of either side that did not come in for some- thing complimentary from tfie spec- tators from time to time. They were all oa their metal and it would be a task to locate a "weak spot any- where on the field last night. The Uniteds were on the field with an improved team with Billy Holberton, recently of the Sons, in line. Holber- ton played a strong and aggressive game after he was located in a posi- tion that suited best with the order of things he wns changed twice dur- ing the game. There was only one thing questionable about Bill's play- ing he did a lot of throwing in lor his team, and in accomplishing the task he usually indulged in a wireless confab with his team, said a prayer and then threw 'the ball. THE BEGINNING The Tjniteds carried the attack to the Shams' territory. It continued there mostly until the first goal was scored. A. Gurr was the one to reg- ister. He secured when Willetts made a vain attempt to clear, and located a passage close in and kicked true it was made in thirteen minutes. This goal acted like an elixir of life upon the Shams. From that time un_- til the completion of the half they gave the Uniteds the run of their life and had the- best of the fray though they were unable to get to the covet- ed spot. Hewitt saveB neatly and then the Shams took it up and so pressed Dunlop that he kicked over the side desperately in blearing. The Shams gate a corner and A..Temmnt kicked in nicely, but Gallagher was OQ the ball anil cleared. The Shams rushed the Uniteds' goal in a body and Dunlop punched the ball out.' Dunlop saved again after a irre kick by the Shams. The Uniteds became i attached to .the sphere and bore down upon Hewitt and shot; Hewitt j saved. Tt went up once more and P. j Farrant secured, .Pattcsori, I who had a nice chance, but he headed the ball over the goal. Hewitt' -was called upoa to exercise his talent aj tnonient later when the Uniteds fore- ed matters. Bell oE the..Uniteds made j a foul throw-in .and the Shams -took a free kick Patteson got another j try to his credit but again the: kick j was a trifle high. Dualop saved one from Gallagher a little later.. After a foul committed by- t-he Shams the Uniteds rushed in on Hewitt- and made ttiings pretty warm tcx the widfr-awake Shams' who punched the ball neatly, put of the danger Half time ended with the ball in the centre of the field; SECOND HALF "The United'led the attack, in the second half, but it was some .time be- fore they were able to penetrate the solid front presented around the'gbal- mdut-h o? the Shams' net. .The ball was in midfield and Tennant broke away and took a terrific long shot, which was a. vard or two o5 the place intended.

It's true that Moran is young ball up and P. Farrant shot a rather weak one which might have taxed Dunlop had it been harder. A foul was called against the Uavteds when Gurr and A. Tennant charged in on Hewitt and Impeded the Shams' goalie just as a score seemed immi- nent. The Uniteds were forcing the fight around the Shams' goal aad the latter was unable to come away for quite a spell Bell and Holberton shot fftronglj irom long range which Hewitt cleverly saved.

The Winnipeg crew continues to do finally broke got the' ball clear, made a dash field but were a stern defense and turned i good work> aml although they, have hack Frier and Patteson collided, yet- broken any practice records, w ith the result that the Shams got; it- is satisfactory to note that so far a free kick, which ended In Campbell their times in full course trials have not been equalled by any other com- peting crew. They were afloat for an hour last pauuiiujj down the stream in quick and lively style. Thay turn- ed and came over the regatta course, Con Riley setting the stroke at 33 for the first minute, afterwards, drop- ping- to 36, the Halfway mark was Dealers Gladly Sell You WHITE getting in close and making a stylish try. There was a lot of skirmishing on the side lines for a period and the ball was kicked out often. Beveridge took a long shot and Hewitt saved. The ball went halfway ip and back again and Bell secured after a hot skirmish, passed to cen- tre where Jock Tennant pounced on the hall and kicked a beautiful goal number 2 for the Uniteds. The Uniteds were given a corner, which the Shams' backs were able to non-plus. A little later J. Tennant iceled the hall over the bar. Jock lad a fine chance to score again, but le and Gurr were offside. The Shams came-sway and BuslGp.was the only one to beat, but he proved unbeatable and cleared when the danger most! ;hreatened. In the last fifteen minutes the tries rere about even, hut the United successful in locating the net again. The final goal was made by j A.
