Arch Thomp son plaj'ed forward for the main part of the gime, but his fine work was rendered futile from lack of assistance.

West, of* the Start' Club, took the field for the Bays to equalise the sides. Mr. Frank Davideou was referee.

Up-and-down play followed until Beaucbainp netted, the first goal with a hard shot. West,' Xankervis, and Thompson led in a Bay attempt.

Symonds helped to send forward, where Beauchamp gained another soal. ^Bays countered and tried to break through, Welsh, West, Xankervis, and Thompson being engaged. Simpson frustrated the rush and sent back. After Bays had again attacked unsuccessfully through the ' agency of ICoLean and West, the northerners asserted them selves.

Eberbach was called upon to reject occasional northern rushes, and he slopped very ttc11 at this stage. I{be Bays were fig-hiing a good finish, and kept up the assault.
