Brighton, Lacrosse Minor Premiers For Second Year
As a result of their 17 — 4 win against St. Peter's Glenelg at the Brighton Oval today, Brighton are minor premiers for the second year in succession. St. Peter's just beat West Torrens for second position on percentage, while East Torrens, who narrowly defeated Sturt, are fourth.
St. Peter's were first into their stride, and scored the first goal, but Brighton quickly responded, and gradually in creased their lead. At half-time the scores stood at Brighton 9, St. Peter's 3. The Brighton forwards proved too strong and experienced for their op posing backmen, and with brilliant combination, forged farther ahead. Swalling. Weeden. and Vinall carried too many guns for the St. Peter's for wards. Wilson, Teague. and Robinson, and although they battled hard, they could manage only one goal after the long interval, the final scores being Brighton 17. St. Peter's 4. Brighton are the outstanding team in the competition, and are strong favor ites to win their third successive pre miership. In a game of fluctuating fortunes. East Torrens defeated Sturt by one goal. Strong back play marked the first half in which only five goals were scored — Torrens 3. Sturt 2. Better forward play \\-a.s seen after the long interval, each .side scoring goals more frequently, the lead chang ing from one side to another. Half way through the last quarter Sturt secured a two-goai lead, and seemed to have the match won, but Torrens evened, and a goal just before the bell gave them the match, 9 to 8. In the other match at the Woodville Oval, West Torrens, striving to improve their goal average, played all over the Port Adelaide side, and won by the large margin of 22 goals. Their meet ing with Brighton in one of the semi finals next week will be an attraction. A GRADE East Torrens. 9: Stnrl. K. Goalthrouers — LVinners: Symonds 181. Parsons. Losers: Had iad (6i. Love.
