Wellington Notes

MARISTS' GREAT WIN.

(By "Tottenham.")

Marist were too good for the V.M.C.A. m the Chatham Cup replay last Saturday on the Basin Reserve, and should have won by a bigger margin, than the odd goal. The Y.M. gave a very disappointing display, both with and against the wind, and at no part of. the game was there any cohesion between the front line and their halves. On the other hand, Marist played a brilliant game, their forwards making- the pace, and the halves tackling and bustling the Y.M. forwards as soon as they became nlangerous. The' outstanding player was Barton, outside right who scored both the Marist goals. Thomas also .played a fine spoiling game, and kept a fatherly eye on Campbell.

Thomas won the toss and set Y.M. to face a strong- southerly. Right from the start Marist got down, but Bowyer relieved. ' Thomas then passed out to Costello, but Bowyer came to the rescue again. Soon after, Thomas tried a shot on his own, but just missed the net.- Marist were attacking .m force now, and McjGirr was having an anxious time.

Marist were now bent on getting the lead before the change oveiy. and they tested Tarrant with several good shots. Y.M. broke away, but the Marist backs soon had the ball back again, and Barton, gaining possession, scored with h long drive (1—0). From the kick-off, Marist went away again, but qff- side against Barton spoilt a good chance. A few minutes later Pope nearly added to the score, but Tarrant got the leather away. A corner to Marist yielded nothing. The Y.M. defence was having a gruelling, time, and it was only due to their untiring efforts that Marist were only one up. Campbell and Hind-

marsh broke away, but A. Rudolph boat them for the ball. Pope was then prominent with two nice- shots, but Tarrant kept his gonl Intact. After a spasmodic dash on the part of the Y.M., Johns, from close up, shot hard, and Tarrant fell m trying to save, but Bowyer dashed m and cleared, conceding a corner. Marist continued to press,' but half-timo f arrived without any further scoring?. - - 'After lemon tlmei' Y.M. got through on the left, but li: Rudolph turned them back. A mis-kick by "Snowy" let Barton and McElligott through, but Bowyer got his boot to it. Marist were holding their own against a strong wind, and were' bent on keeping the lead. Thomas came' to grief m a scuffle/and had to be carried off, but pluqklly returned ten minutes later. Marist, halves were now putting plenty of ginger into their play, and the Y.M. forwards could not get going. From a corner Campbell secured, and wa.B preparing to "pot" when Thomas kicked .the ball fro<n his toe and conceded another corner, which yielded Y.M. nothing. Costello then got well away, and the ball was sent across to Barton, who stumbled, but recovered, and shot, Tarrant just turning It aside. From another breakaway Barton , tested Tarrant, who saved weakly, and the outside right sent it crashing Into the not (2 — 0). From a corner kick. Bui lard landed- the bail m front of Hlckey, and McGirr sot his bead to it (2 — l)',- -There we're only a few minutoß to go now, and Y.M. woke up, and Phillips scored, but the whistle had gone for off-side. There was no further scoring, and Marist got a well-merited victory. H. Rudolph and Gamble were very safe at back. 4 The halves, Burke, Thomas and A. Rudolph, played a great game, and hnd the measure of the Y.M. forwards right from the start All the Marist forwerdp were nippy, ond kept on the movo, but Barton was the star. Bowyer and McOlrr arc a fine pair of backs, but they had a busy afternoon and couldn't* hold the .Marist front line. Phillips tried hard to draw level, hut his luck was out. Campbell was held so well by Thomas that ho had no chnnce to shine, nml Hindmarsh and Ballard could not sot going. Stark did some neat thine, and should be persevered with. THISTLE 4, INSTITUTE 0, Thistio had an oa*y win over Instltuto at Association Park, but the wind spoilt any spectacular play. Thistle attacked from the start and were soon bombarding Burt. Institute then broke away, but offside spoilt their effort. From tho goal kick the Thistle forwards .come away and VVotherspoon scored (1-0). The Instituto then hnd a say In, but it was only temporary, and Boadle, securing, added another gonl (2-0). Give and take piny followed, but tho Institute could not penetrate Thistle's defence. «nd Taylor and Lennox nclded further goals (4-0). Thero was no further scoring before half-timo. After tho Interval Institute- went away, and with tho assistance of the wind kept tho ball In Thistle's territory, but could not score, and the game ended m favor of Thistle by four goals ' to nil. For tho winners, Ewlng played a great game m goal. G. Wotherspoon nnd E. T. Taylor gave a fine exhibition of back plfiy, Lennox wan well on the target, and was ably asHlstcd by his other forwards. HOSPITAL 0, KARORI 0. Although beaten by six goals, Karori put up a good show, and tho score is not a reul Indication of the gumo. From the word go Knrorl went nwny, but were pulled up by the

Hospital defence. Mclntyre and Berry : . got away again, when Case, handled the ball m the prohibited area. Mclntyre took the kick, but Trewick saved. Both teams went all out, but at half-time the score sheet was J blank. After change of ends Hospital got goins:, and Gibb scored with a fine drive (1-0). This livened the game up, and from a corner Hughes ( added another (2-0). Henderson handled m the penalty area shortly afterwards and B. Ferguson foun« the net (3-0). Further goals were scored by Lambert, Hughes and Gibb, and the "final whistle announced Hospital victors by 6-0. WATERSIDE 0, DIAMONDS .0.
