CHATHAM, CHARITY, AND CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES
A heavy wind and persistent showers of rain were the handicaps with which footballers had to contend on Saturday afternoon, but these conditions did not altogether prevent some good displays of Association football. The local programme was a varied one, Chatham Cup, Charity Cup, and championship matches being played in the senior grade. In the Chatham and Charity Cups section, Institute justified all the good things that have been said about them by easily defeating Swifts. Their display was a sound one. Waterside had but one goal to spare from V.M.C.A. (B), the members of the latter team putting up a stern fight against last season's champions. V.M.C.A. and Marist finished up a strencus match with honours even, two goals each, and both .teams remain in the cup competitions. Out at Porirua. Hospital managed to secure the odd goal of seven- against Diamonds, a performance due, no doubt, to superior staying powers. The only championship ma'tcl^ Hustle v. Kai-ori, resulted in a remarkably easy win for the former combination, there being a difference of six goals in the scoring account.
In the senior B competition. Scottish Wanderers gained an easy win over Welgasco,. and Petone defeated Seatoun by a margin of one goal. Results at a glance are:—
