In circumstances referred to in another column St Kilda gained a tictorv otcr Melbourne i

a stubbornly contested game hy a Fingió point, due to a goal scored bj the seaside« and allowed after the final bell had gone The St hilda ground was in perfect order, and the 16,000 spectators thoioughly enjoyed the fftinc, which was ftst, open, and scientific, with spectacular air work, some of the marking on both sides being magnificent ht Kildi showed a striking rc\crsal ot it* poor form against Collingwood, and the final quarter had well advuieed before Melbourne gained the lead, and the minutes before the final was two clear goals in front

The seaside», how et cr, had a little in reseñe, and in a final burst Bcored first a point and then two goals, tho second sonic seconds after the bell

Just before the bell Baker again scored   for Geelong, but Fitzroy ran out winners by 21 points with the scores:—  

FITZROY, 16 goals 9 behinds—105 points.   GEELONG, 12 goals 9 behinds—84 points.  

F. Williams, on the wing, was easily the best   player on the Fitzroy side. He was dashing and   clever and repeatedly fed the forwards. Cockram was in great form in the air, his marking and   general play being splendid. Reichman, Jenkin,     and Helwig were all reliable defenders, and the best of the others were Batchelor, Ringrose, Cash-     man, Chapman, and T. Williams.  

Geelong did not have so many men playing well   but in Fleming they had one of the most solid players in the game, his marking and long kicking   being a treat to watch. M. Lamb capably held the   fullback position, and kept Moriarty quiet. Cogh-   lan worked hard in the ruck, while Chambers,   Clearson, Stevenson, Todd, Hickey, Hardiman, and       White all shone out at times

Goal-kickers.—Fitzroy—Chapman (4), Cashman     (4), Moriarty (4), Ringrose (2), Cockram, and   Roberts. Geelong—Rankin (3) Baker (3), Hardi-      

man, Clearson, Ferguson Fleming, Chambers, and    



Morrison, 10 Goals.

Hawthorn disappointed its most rabid supporters   by its display on Saturday, when, at Glenferrie, Footscray proved so immeasurably strong that   the final figures, large as they are, do no more     than give a correct estimate of the disparity between the teams. Moreover, the contest—if     such it can be called—was played in a nasty spirit. There were covert acts aplenty, and it   was apparent that only fear of consequences   caused restraint. The one purple patch in the   drab picture was the goal-getting of Morrison.     He marked brilliantly, was elusive as an eel, and his snapshots were delivered with the quickness of Moriarity, and the kick with which he scored his tenth goal demonstrated his ability to score

from a long range.

The opening quarter was one incessant bom- bardment by Footscray, which frequent changes in Hawthorn's ruck failed to silence. Sherer's   fine marking turned two early Footscray sorties,   but there was no repelling a subsequent one which   Morrison crowned after taking a great mark. Fine play by Sherer and Barker took the ball to the other end, but Hyde's shot was lamentably poor. Determined play by Morrison accounted for Footscray's   second goal. Sporadic Hawthorn attacks     found Outen untramelled by the duties of   captaincy, while the all-round superiority of his   subordinates is aptly reflected in the score of 5-4

to one behind.

The second term was vigorous, but poor. Withers (from a free kick) opened Hawthorn's goal account.   Fairley had an easy chance to score the   second, for he took a mark two feet in front of the goal line, over which he ran before taking his kick. Hawthorn, perceiving it was   no match in the air for Footscray, resorted to   low kicks which oftimes hit the man on the mark. The board at half-time showed 9-5 to   3-6 in favour of Footscray.      

Footscray went further ahead in the third term, adding 5-2 to 3-1. Hawthorn was finding it a trial to beat down the barrier so firmly set by Outen, Thompson, and Greenhaigh. At the last change Footscray had an eight-goal lead.    

The fire went out of the game in the early stages of the last term, but it was rekindled following upon that reprehensible act of bowling over a man after he had got rid of the ball. The attention of the crowd, likewise three     Hawthorn defenders, now centred on Morrison, who added three more goals. The scores were:—  

FOOTSCRAY, 19 goals 9 behinds (123 points). HAWTHORN, 8 goals 8 behinds (56 points).

For Footscray Morrison's goal-kicking was         wonderful, but a better player in a general way was Outen, who defended brilliantly. Aked,   McDonald, Stevens, Thompson, and McAlpine, all played finely. For Hawthorn, Lathlean did yeoman service in defence. Tasker roved splendidly   Sherer executed some clever marks in defence, and also played well in the centre. Sellars and   Withers were often under notice.

Goal-kickers.—Footscray—Morrison (10), McDonald     (2), Rowe (2), Sloly (2), Aked, Conlon, and     N. Woodman. Hawthorn—Hyde (4), Withers (3),

also defended ably. Smllli waa a clever rover; Brooker marked exceptionally «veil in the centre; luck wis actl«e in attack; Hyde marked spion dldly, and showed gre-it Improvement In kicking; and h'nhlUcn kVïked six goals and sought position cleverly. There wore some great struggles on "' centre line, ««hero Sklltou, Brooker, and

vey were opposed by Flit, Arthur, and Bor- land. All t\\- nett prominent at timoB, and the coniest may be described as n.draw.

Webb, playing -centre 'half-back, and Dore, full back on tile «vlng, were outstanding men (or Brighton, both' marking -well and showing errat dash and 'determination. Dainty, Garcia, and Storey also played well in -that depart- ment. Matthews, although overshadowed by Gar- butt, marked vvoll at times, but did not kick accurately. Trood gave a good display, and On«sidy (new man, Irom the Old Caulfield Gram marinus) was useful In the nick, .and, playing hnlf-forward,, took some good marks, but missed easy chances. M

Frood, the umpire, gavo a splendid "exhibition. 'lu was prompt and firm, and missed very few

Cobui-g outplayed Brunswick In every depart- ment of the game on Saturday at Coburg, in the presence of G,000 spectators., Alesslo, who re- placed Mcinerney, for Brunswick, at tlio last moment, gave a very' good account of himself. The game was very fast, but thero was an inclina- tion towards undue roiigbncFS In the play. On three occasions players were knocked .out for se« eral minutes. , '

Brunswick had llrst ino of the wind, but was not equal to a sufficiently sustained effort, and hy faulty kicking failed to gain the full bcnellt of its chance«. At the end of the quarter Coburg led by 4-4 to 3-7. Coburg had the g.ime nractl sllylts own way in the second -quaitcr,-despite allant efforts by Brunswick, and at half-time led iy 31 points.

In the third quarter Coburg,-plavlng a man short, had hard work to stem' tho attacks of Brunswick, which, had It kicked with gicatcr precision, would undoubtedly baie led. Play reached Its roughest pitch in this quarter. On one occasion a display of fisticuffs was threatened, hut the good sense of the plajers prcvniled. Coburg led by 10-11 lo CM2. -In the la», quarter Coburg '«««helmed Brumnvlck, and if II bad kicked

ccuralcly there would ha«c been.a much greater difference In tho scores, ««-liloh ««-eic:- ,

Until three-quarter time there «vas not much difference between Yarraville and \Villlam5to«vn In the game played at Willlamstoun. lhere ««as an attendance of 2,000, and, except for a some- what unpleasant interlude In the third term, ««hen a Yarraville man lost lils temper mometi tailly, it was a line, sparkling exhibition o! fast and clean football. Jn tho last term Yarraville sho\«ei| Its superiority, especially in marking and passing. Us kicking for goal, ho«vc«cr, ««as criatic, and some easy shots «vere missed. , Out of nine attempts only three goals resulted.

' On Hie bounce Yarraville attacked determinedly and several llercc attacks «vero turned, WH !lamsto««n, favoured by a slight hicc-e, took the offensive, and at quarter time led by 2-2 to

Hudd and Sherman turned Williamsto«vn attacks,. and a nice chain of marks by Yarraville culmin- ated in a goal. Another forward move was made by Williamsto««n, and Quinn, from a scrim- mage in front, snapped a goal. At-half-time Yal ravllle led by 4-5 to 3-2.

' For some timo in the third quarter Y'arraville ««as on tho defensive. Williamstown-t««lce hit the post. Williamstown undoubtedly had the

final temi, and although willlamstoivn made seve- ral) valiant efforts, It could not score a point. A strenuous contest closed with the scores;
