Tlie Sturt defence TSgekgS woridng well together, and withstood ^6|5a|k tackt, and Woodhead rflone among the reds, -?#(? scut well out of danger. A scramble iu front of the net 'resulted in. Flett eecurjnf. He paeeeJ to Xoblet, who; 1 hough hard pressea. knocked the sphere in, and registered the first goal -of the day. The Sturt catching and 40s &ng were superior to that of the Torrens men, who were mulling 'their chances by faulty ttick work. At last Sbinneis gained possession, and ,bot wide from a fairly long distance L'p md-don-n play followed, until Holthonte ran down :he field and served G. Oke without result: ! R. Flett was doing grand work for Shirt, and

fully repelled a Start rush, and forwarded wellj down the field- M. Oke missed a grand oppor- J runity of passing to a loose dnbmate and Stnrt cleared and forwarded to Xoblet, who skilfully scored Tuimber two. Give-and-take play fol lowed, without either tide scoring, until the quarter ended. Sturt— 2 gpale. liast Torreno— Xil. After the change .of ends Torrens attacked, but without system, and the tenjporarv advan tage was lost. At last Tomlinson broke aww and served Flett, who with Xoblet exhibited some fine combined play. By tkiUul fmesillK Sturt retained possession, and -v'oblet. j£»in proved his worth. This time fin empff .* ^goal. gave him hie chance. Snortlv after ie';%au) shot, but Parnell was safe, acd 'cleared weH..'.^- good, long pass bv Kranz, and East Xsrrens&it-- tacked for a. change. Han-v Holincs Saved Se position, and ajrain bis side srronglv attacke-i, ?only to tee Parnell attdi a hot tiiot io' his erosse. The East Torrens homes apparcntlv'xound difficulty iu keeping their feet on the ilippcry grata. Their great fault was iu not picking out a. man to pats to, but serving the ball swav anj-wher? without direction. M. Oke had a shot from close in, which went wide. McDo nald was very active 'and ture in goal, andj made no mistake;. Kast Torrens had plenty of the play in front of goal, but failed I again and again b-- faulty paffing and bad t=hoot ing. The play was now all over the field and very even. Each man put in his 'hardest, and West put up a good run on the wingl The quarter ended with- Sturt holding a commanding advantage. Half-time: — Sturt— S goals. East Torrers— Xil. ? After the long interval G. Oke was back in his old place, and Shinners wai played on the attack. The Sturts attacked, and after several attempts Xoblet had a dhot, which Parnell had no difficulty in stepping. A strong eastern attack followed, led b_v Shinners and L. OUc. but quelled by McDonald. All combined in a further effort, and crowded the Sturt' goal too

much to do anv good. Players mx now going - their bardobt, and the game was fall of vim. McLeay from close in hit Pamell'b body, and the Torrens attacked without luck. PanjeU . was x host 'in himself , and was pUying a fine, game. Unluckily a pas meant for Tomlineon caught the keeper napping, and went into tie net.

Holtbouse secured from the face-off, and passed to SL Oke, and McLeay tpoUed it.; Dp and down all over the field, and Srinnere had a. long* -shot, wbicb, «£ OEual, -wenc -wide. X~ Oke then had » try, but snoceeded only, in hitting a side of the net. The play was now very fast, and Sturt. through the agency ? of Selt-h, shot over tbg.net. Bobins tried, and. then Parriell £cnt fot»d to Boadi. Bade agaia, and Davidson saved. .? . Sturt vcre more than holding their own. ' Seltli had a eiot from a. free, srlricb Parnell deflected.
