The de- fences of. both teams were tried and found'to be effective at critical times while the; forwards were at times at wits' -end to know what to do with" the ball, so of course blame tlie rind and "you won't 'be The game was free from rough tactics. Albert Arnold acted as referee in in efficient and; impartial manner while- J. Gurr- and Jack Bannerma officiated satisfactorily as linesme.. respectively for the Sons and the Overseas. The Parker, over his own head, with his back to the OjS. goal was perhaps the cleverest thing ia the shooting line ever seen in the city, and was loudly applauded., the shot was made from twenty yards oul and landed just under the centre o! the crossbar, and-1 to clear Sumner, tipped over the bar. expense of a- corner. "Coles wis' called upon to clear his charge at the, of a corner right in the teeth of a strong breeze -But there was iio damage done. The gale, .ho'wever, seemed to carry the ball continually over the eastern touch line and the players were wor- ried in distressing fashion.
