On the North Ground, where a collection was taken up for the patriotic fund, the Colts, thanks to J. N. Crawfords tine bowling, beat Albion ; and Opoho gaincil a meritorious win over last year’s premiers—Grange.- The surprise of the day, however, was the victory of the new senior team (St. Hilda) over Carisbroofc A, at Carishvook, tho home team being fairly and squarely beaten. Following are-the results:—'

Colts v. Albion. Only tho wizardry of Crawford's bowling arm pulled tho eoJJs’ team through their encounter with Atuion. Heavy ram had thoroughly soaked tne North Ground wicket, which hung throughout tho first hour of play, .incl was eccentric throughout. The colts were ail .it sea, feeling for everything, and with Stiglish sending down a good ball with a Jot of leg spin, very few of the batsmen looked happy. Crawford himsoif went first ball, catching his bat in the edge of the pad when “going for” a beauty from Stiglish. Alloo made 27, occasionally playing freely, but for the most part giving the bowling a much more difficult complexion than it should have worn. The only really attractive innings was that ol Bell, who played with impeccable discretion, and some audacity. Tho last two wickets carried tho score from 65 to 150. On the face of it it was a fair task to get a team like Albion out under that figure, but Crawford did it in an hour and a-half, his average reading : Seven wickets. 11 runs. Even on that* comparatively slow wicket ho got tremendous pace, with that slight and yet all-suffi-cient turn from the off. Stewart and Baker played steady cricket for the second wicket, but Crawford beat them both shortly after 30 was recorded. Duthie and Johnston took the tally to 73, and E. Williams made a nice 26, the innings dosing for 101, and leaving the boys victorious by 29 runs. Details : Colts.—First Innings. Shepherd b Johnston 8 Chadwick c E. Williams b Stiglish ... 4 A. W.
