FOR THE CHATHAM CUP
WIN FOR V.M.C.A.
The Chatham Cup competition was carried a further stage' forward, when V.M.C.A. went across to Nelson and met Nelson Wanderers on Saturday. The game was too one-sided to be first-rate football, V.M.C.A. leaving the field with an 8-1 win, but nevertheless the Nelson team did not allow the visitors everything their own way. V.M.C.A. s first goal came from the left wing, shooting hard past the goal at a sharp angle, a shot which was practically unsaveable. Young Men went through again in the centre, playing the short passing game, on a wet and tricky ground, and a second point was made, but only after a, keen struggle in the goal mouth, Lamb successfully turning out a couple of shots before he was caught out of position by a third. Nelson went away and forced a corner, and it was from this that their only goal was ■ scored, Sievers sending through neatly. Young Men's next! goal came as a result; of a mis-kick by Hurst, Phillips making the best use of the opening so given. By half-time the score had gone up to 5-1, and in the second spell, during which Nelson made several likely looking attacks, Ballard goaled from'a corner, and Trott added a couple more, one by a long drive and the other after a; good, solo performance.
