A senior football match between teams representing the Old Boys and Eakaia Clubs was played on the Eakaia Domain yesterday m ideal football weather. The visitors were captained by E. I. Dansey, and the Eakaia team by W. Sheriffs, Mr F. Pritchard acting as referee. After an evenly contested game the match resulted m a draw, the points being as follows:— Eakaia—3 points from a try; Old Boys— 3 points from a penalty goal, kicked by Dansey. The Eakaia backs were strong, and played a splendid game, the forwards being somewhat weak. The Old Boys' forwards on the other hand played effectively, giving no chances and missing none. If anything, the Old Boys' backs lacked combination; otherwise the team would have scored a victory. : The visitors were entertained at Kennedy's Hotel, and subsequently proceeded home by drag.
