V. SeitU was referee. Sturt played ;oli-ily throughout and deserved its vrtn. although the students had patches of bad luck especially in the first term. Uni versity was more vigorous in tae fir=t half, aid gave the Sturt team little oppor tunity to score, pressing the attack con tinuously The strength of Sturt was equaUy demonstrated In the work of tne back line, which prevented heavier scor ing. Each side had scored one goal in ihe first term, and DrJverslty had one up at half-time. Tae muddy conditious made footholds Tjrccarious. yet the stan dard cf Dlav was good, stickwork being outstanding. In the third term Stu:t applied itself to obtaining tie j-dvantage. and inspired by the vigorous S'.-i sure work of Kestel (captain), the side added three goals. University failed to score, due largely to its attack work being a frac tion too slow. Solid stacking of the back line positions kept the attack men out of both goals. Play was mainly centred round goal positions, and Sturt. by adding two goals to nil In the last term, yr\*A» sure of the game sad the minor oremlershlD Final scorea: ?

Port Adelaide Beat East Torrens The Port Adelaide team continued its run of wins by defeating East Torrens. Stubbs had charge of the Bams, which was an exciting one. especially to half time, when only one goal separated the sides, in Port's lavor. Great strength around centre made the play Interesting, and from here Torren6 led off with a rush and began scoring early, with five goals to taree by Port Adelaide, who be came a little disorganised because of the loss of Davis through Injury. In the nest term Port Adelaide played better, their stickwork being much improved.
Thus th«- first quarter scores were re versed, and the half-time scores were ri?ht g--?.U trj seven. East Terrrns opened *troneiy in the ihira tcim. but found the Port defence me too strong.
