The State -Premiership
Cananore Defeat N. Launceston
In summer-like weather Cananore won the' Stat«-premiership at 'the North Hobart ground on Saturday for the third year in succession, defeating North Launceston, the Northern Asso- ciation premiers', by 17 points after a close and Interesting game. The match
attracted nearly 6,000 ptople. His Ex- - cellency the.. -Ooytrnor (Sir James O'Qrady) was ' present. The game was marred by the sudden death of Mr. Lowther Gorrlnae, father of the wHUknown Cananore rover, at the half-time interval. Al- though the -League premiers played the second half of-the game with only 17 men they finished ' stronger than . their opponsnts, and, except for a short period In the third quarter, al- ways held the Itad. .
Saturday would have been better suited for a cricket match than a hard bumping game of football. The heat almost reach- ed mid-summtr.-lntenslty, and the surface of the oval was-iiard, despite the liberal watering It lind been ¿Wen during the week. Prom the spectator's point of view, the day was perfect, but the players swelt- ered under their exertions, and the visitor« in particular tired badly toward the finish. The game proved to he most Interesting much more Interesting,than most expect- ed. After starting off " Indifferently the Northern premiers settled down, and dur- ing the last three-quarters had Cananore extended until half-way through the fll*»l term. Gorrlnge, who had been playing Sparkling football, of course, left the ground as soon as .tltft .death of his father, who was amongst the Spectators, became known, and' Cananore were a player shon for half of the game. .The tragedy also had a depressing effect on the team, and their play in the opening stages of the third quarter lacked dash and vim. How- ever, even allowing for' this, North Laun- ceston played,a-ftno-game,' although they were obviously up against a much stronger team. Their high marking Was first class, and their kicking good; but they possessed the big Northern falling of over-indulgence In running with the ball. They also adopt- ed questionable tactics In paying too much attention to Ahearne, the Cananore fuU forward. A player was detailed off especi- ally to watch» him, :put_..he made rather a poor fist of his task. " Every lime the ball was sent to Ahearne he bubtled him, with the result that Ahearne was awarded numorous free-kicks. Fortunately for the visitors, however1, the crack forward was in poor kicking form, ahd his tally of goals was not high.- The move certainly proved costly, as, apart from what goals Ahearne did kick, a number were, obtained by the player left unguafaea--ln order to cover Ahearne. North Launceston showed splen- did pace, particularly' In the second quar- ter ana In this opening stage» of the third quarter. Their rucks held their own against those of Cananore, and honours in the air were fairly evenly divided. They were, however, lacking in team work and in a knowledge ot.i»any of tho finer points of the game. Across the centre they wero badly beaten, and It was mainly due to Cananore's supremacy In this part of the Held that the visitors failed. Cananore's shooting for goal was again most erratic, as their tally of 20 singles Indicates. Numerous easy «hots "only realised singles, which Included two "posters," and others went out of bounds. But for this Canan- ore would have gained a more comfortable win than they did. - .

THE FIRST QUARTER.
Cananore dominated the play in the first quarter, and but for their erratic kicking in front of goal would have obtained a very substantial lead. iThey displayed superior team work, and a better knowledge of the finer points of the game. The visitors ñad Rouse detaLlëd-off.especIally to watch Ahearne, which was a'hig compliment to the Cananore full-forward, but the scheme was ineffective. The Northerner paid no attention to the ball, being too Intent on dogging Ahearne'« ' footsteps and making him piesents of-free-kicks. However, for- tunately for the visitors, Ahearne was In poor kicking form...hut the loose forward given Cananbre did -a (food deal of harm. Ahcarne's 'first free-kick i resulted in a single, two minutes after fñe game had been In orogress. Scott delighted the crowd by his spectacular marking that held In check the North Launceston attacks
that followed, and HIllj the unguarded for- ward, recelvlng'"tnê"T>aH, as a result of one of the'numerous sallies he Initiated, kicked Cdnanore's second single When the ball was kicked in the elusive Gor- rlnge dived in front of the pack, and run- ning in goaled seven minutes after the start.

The -same player re
peated the score almost immediately after- wards, and following a point kicked by Hill, Cananore's loose forward, he brought off a spectacular mark and kicked the visitor'« third single When Cananore re- sumed the attack Rouse again molested Ahearne, the jesuit of the free-kick being Cananore's ' second goal Cananore then maintained a series of attacks Gorrlnge added a single, but Franks went one bet- ter from a free-kick obtained as the re- sult of the Interfering tactics of the visitors' back players. Canandre continued to show out to advantage with their team work, and although North Launceston de- fended strongly, and held their own In the ruóles, their efforts were being nullified by their tendency to over-run with the boll Dimer, who was giving a clever display as rover for the visitors, was responsible for their first« goal from a clever screw k'clc seven minutes before the bell Cananore maintained their attacks, and Gorrlnge, passing to .Hill the latter kicked his side s fourth goal The scores at quarter time

Lefroy Win State Premiership
Last Quarter Victory
Lefroy Juniors and Launceston B grado were evenly matched when they contested the State premiership at the North Hobart ground on Saturday as a curtain-raiser to the Cnnanoio-North Launceston game. Both sides played fast and vigorous foot- ball, and the -visitors showed superiority in handling the ball. In the final term, however, they tired perceptibly, and Le froy's determined attacks gave them vic- tory hy 15 points. Tho visitors were with- out the services of P. Turnei, who return- ed to launceston as the result of a family bereavement.
Backs: Newman, Chipman, Alnswoith (captain).
Half-backs: Malone, Florence. Adcock. Centres: Parsons, Gillett, Feltham.
Half-forwaids: Hood, Stott, Burton. Forwards: Griggs, Adams, Sproule.
Followers: Lyons, Bradshaw, Lestei.
Backs: Robert », Shields, Mollison.
Half-backs: Lithgow, Room, Salisbury. Centres: Cooper, Freeman, Cox. *
Half-forwards: Kelly, Jensen (captain), Baker.
Forwards: Christian, Freeland, Ilewlt
Followers: Marshall, Russell, Lovegrove.
Lefroy opened the attack, but It was not a sustained effort, and Kelly opened the scoring for Launceston with a point a few minutes from the bounce. Shortly after- wards an exchange between Kelly and
Hewltson enabled the latter to scoie the first goal. In the subsequent exchanges Lefroy scored two points In quick succes- sion, and then the play was In the centre for some time, with the back lines of each side proving reliable when an advance was threatened. Parsons, on the wing, was playing clever football, and participated in almos^ every forward move by Lefroy. On two occasions he gave possession to Sproule after carrying the ball along the wing, and Sproule goaled each time. Free- man, who was playing solidly in the centre, Roberts, Cooper, and Jensen were hard workers,in a series of attacks, but Hood, Newman, Adcock, and Parsons proved re- liable. A break-away In the centre bv Hood placed the ball well forward, and Adams snapped It up, and scored Lefroy's third goal. The Northerners pressed con- tinually In the last few minutes, and Jen- sen, Hewltson, and Freeman were out- standing. Goals came from Baker, Chris- tian, and Freeland, and at the change the
G. B. Pts. Launceston . 4 2 - 26 Lefroy. 3 3 - 21
In the second quarter the visitors dis- played superiority in handling the ball, and falling into position. South attacked early and Adams scored a fine goal from the boundary line. Kelly and Roberts proved too strong in subsequent advances bv Lefroy, and forced the ball forward. Hood was the outstanding man in defence at this stage, andi.efroy were slow to the ball and did not make the best use of opportuni- ties. North were also showing slight superiority in the air, and Freeman par- ticularly was prominent with his splendid marking and long drl\es from the centre
Into the forward line. Freeland, Kelly, and Christian each added a goal as a result of the persistent attacks of the visitors. Lefroy attacked frequently, but the Laun- ceston backs rose to the occasion and the home team could only manage a couple of points. The Northern side had estab- lished a good lead at half-time, when the
G.. B. Pts. Launceston. 7 5 47 Lefroy. 4 6 30
The teams were evenly matehed In a vigorous third quarter. Early advances by Launceston were staved off by Lefroy, till Kelly ran In and scored a goal from an angle shot, making the difference in the scores nearly four goals.- Lefroy brought the ball forward, and Sproule goaled. The Northerners again showed a glimpse of their superiorlt}' orthe previous quarter, and for some time Lefroy s backs were working hard. . Only points resulted, however, and a temporary transfer of the play enabled -Adams tq goal. Freeman, Lithgow, Marshall, Room, Russell, Love grove, and Baker came Into prominence for Launceston, while Stott, Chipman, Par- sons, and Adcock were solid workers for Lefroy. After exchanges In the centre, Lefroy hammered at Launceston's goal for a time, but the. kicking was wild, and there was 'no material Increase In the score. The Northerners were on the' de- fensive during the latter part of the quar- ter, and staved off Lefroy's attacks suc- cessfully. The scores at the end of the quarter were:
C. B. Pts. Launceston. 8 9 57 Lefroy. 6 9 45
? FINAL QUARTER.
For the first half of the last term, the Northerners managed to maintain the difference in the scores, but in the con- cluding stages they tired, while Lefroy finished vigorously. Lefroy%seored a point soon after the start, and a goal by Adams reduced the lead to five points. For a time Launceston attacked, but the ball was forced back and Chipman, now playing forward, placed it In the goalmouth, where It was snapped up by Adams, who scored his fifth goal, placing Lefroy a point in the lead. A point by Launceston brought the scores level, and then Hewltson found an open goal, and placed the visitors In the lead again. A chain of marks between Room, Jensen, and Freeland enabled the last-mentioned to goal. Lefroy pressed forward perM&tently. and when there were ten minutes remaining. Adams goaled, and Lefroy' gained tile lead by a point when Chipman added a similar score. When the ball was forced down again, Adams goaled again, and soon after Ainsworth and Lester each added a goal, placing Lefroy 21 point* in front.

Dowling was Interferred with, but only one flag resulted from the free-kick. Kermandie forwarded, and B. Geeves scor- ed their eighth goal. Huonville, recover- ing,, passed forward, and Oxley scored the possible. A point by Calvert brought the play to a conclusion. Final scores:
