Harbor Board's first goal was the result of a nice run down the wing by Henshnur whn passed the. leather oj .to && *g£ the net 111?' h A f dln^ tht taS 'into lv nn P , ( "S ; Manst attacked strongly il { \ l , hls Setba ck, and McElligott In: the second spell Marist went off with a rush, but the defence of Harbor Board kept them out. Barton received a nasty knock on the ankle and kfd.to be carried off. Marist, although handicapped, put up a great ngJit, but the superior combination of Harbor Board prevailed. , Palmer got away to the other end, and tested Hickey, who partly saved, Margison nipping in to score (2-0). There was no further scoring, and Harbor Board qualify for the final. Batty, the Auckland custodian, showed, up to advantage, and put up a good defence. The backs both acquitted themselves well, while Bell was the best of the halves. Palmer was prominent right through the game. Margison made the best oi! his opportunities.

Hickey, in goal for Marist, had a heavy day, and it was only his good play that kept the score down against his side. H. Rudolph was sound in defence, while Thomas, at. centre-half, was a tower of strength to his side. Barton was the best' of the two wingers on the day's, play, and Avas responsible for the making of some fine openings, but the inside forwards failed to take advantage of the opportunities given them.
