A capital match was. played on the Ashburton Domain ground to-day, between teams selected from lads of the above school under fifteen years of age. The Timaru “ boys,” accompanied by the masters of the High School, arrived in Ashburton by the 10.50 train; and shortly afterwards the match was commenced. The Timaru team were captained by Jones, and Reg. Hodder similarly acted for the local team. Ashburton winning the toss, elected to take the wickets, and were not disposed of until 05 had been put together, the batting of Fred Fish and Reg. Hodder being noticeable—especially in regards to the latter—for powerful hitting and marked skill. The Timaru learn then handled the willow, and at the outset it appeared as if they were going to to make a poor stand, Hodder’s bowling being very destructive. However, the plucky play of Campbell gave a different aspect to affairs, and when the last wicket fell the respectable total appended appeared to Timaru’s credit. For the visiting team Jones’ trundling was very good. The ground was in fair order through the shower which fell this morning, in addition to which, the Ashburton boys had well rolled the pitch. After the first innings the lads were driven to Shearman’s Hotel, where a capital spread was partaken of, after which Mr Dawson, the head-master of the Timaru High School thanked the local team for their kind hospitrlity and for the reception which had been accorded to the Timaru representatives. Mr Hogg, for the Ashburtonians, briefly responded, and acknowledged that the local school were only returning a compliment which had been paid to them when visiting Timaru to contest football honors. Mr M'Rao then drove the bo3'3 back to the ground, where play was continued up to 4.30. Appended are the scores up to the time of our reporter leaving the ground : Ashburton —Ist Innings. F.
