The visitors placad a strong team m tho field and thi local club had a full representation. From the bully off the local players settled down to solid work and setup an attack on the Drapers' goal. Good play by the Drapers' backs relieved, and the visiting forwards getting m some good work placed Ashburton on the defensive. Silcock removed the danger, and the blue forwards headed by Millichamp returned to the attack and for a time kept the visitor on the defence. Play was once more removed to the centre of the field by good play on tho part of the visiting backs ; but the local forwards were not; to be denied and kept up a strong attack, several shooters just missing the goal. The Drapers removed the scena *o£ play to the local 25, and for a time kept the blue backs busy m defending. More good ] work by Silcock removed the danger, and from a forward rush, iv which all the forwards ware conspicuous, Watt scored for the lo^al team. Ashbnrton 1, Drapers nil. The white forwards now put additional vigour into their play, and Dunstan especially worked hard to equalize the score, but the blue backs wore equal to the occasion, Silcock again and again showing what a splendid back he is by stopping shooters and relieving when a score seemed certain Half time was called with the blues at tackiDg and the score Ashburton 1, Drapers nil. On changing over the bluo forwards again put m good work, Millichamp getting m some good individual rushes, and on ni'ire than one occasion jusfc missing the goal. Cutler and McDonald were conspicuous m several forward rushes, and what often appeared like a certain score was stopped by the white backs m the nick of time. The play to the remainder of the spell was of a give and take nature, each team alternately bringing oil the attack and defence. No further score resulted and Ashburton won by 1 to nil. Scientific hockey was quite out oE the question. The order of the day called for individual rushes m which the local forwards outclassed their opponents. Of the backs Siicock, Baker Humphries, and Amos were the most conspicuous, and m the forwards Millichamp, Cutler, Fabling and McDonald all put m good solid work.
